Wrong fuel in your car? Petrol in a diesel engine?
If you've put the wrong fuel in your car, you’re not alone. The AA once stated that over 150,000 drivers put the wrong fuel in their car every year across the UK - That's over 400 a day!
Every single day we receive tonnes of calls from all over the UK from stranded motorists who have put the wrong fuel in their cars.
Some people advise that you might just be able to fill the car with the correct fuel and you could possibly get away with it. However our professional advice is always to have the contaminated fuel removed from your car as soon as possible. We have been in this business for well over a decade and can assure you that the only way to have complete peace of mind is to get the tank drained.
If you are not sure what to do and want advice about the wrong fuel in your car you call our UK-based call team to get the real answers. Please call us on 0800 711 7172 and we'll help you.
If you have accidentally put the wrong fuel in your car Wrong Fuel SOS will safely drain the wrong fuel from your car's fuel tank and dispose of the contaminated fuel in accordance with Environment Agency Health and Safety directives.
Important: Putting petrol in a diesel car is generally not a big problem, as long as you have it removed in a timely fashion. Usually the only problem it causes is lost time and an unfortunate call-out fee to get it fixed. If you’ve used the wrong fuel, try not to switch the engine on or put the key in the ignition. This can circulate the contamination around the entire fuel system, increasing the risk of causing damage.
If you have put petrol in a diesel car you should act quickly to get it rectified. The longer it is left in the vehicle the more time it has to corrode the rubber and plastic fuel lines and seals.
At Wrong Fuel SOS we offer the most comprehensive and quickest call-out nationwide fuel drain solution for people who have accidentally put the wrong fuel in their car.
