How Can You Tell If You Have Placed Petrol In A Diesel Engine?

Of course many people will realise at the petrol station forecourt that they have made a mistake. Unfortunately once you have put the petrol in diesel car engines it is too late to stop the pump. Others may not even realise that they have made a mistake. It is not until they are back on the road that their mistake becomes apparent. Typically, the car will start to lose acceleration and may begin to jump. If this happens in your diesel vehicle then chances are you have a petrol in diesel car problem.

What Should You Do Next?

The next step is to pull the car safely off to the side of the road. Do not attempt to drive the car home or to a garage. Continuing to drive the vehicle can result in damage to the engine which can be very costly to repair. Once you have safely parked the vehicle you should call Fuel-Drain on 03332 103835.
