Petrol being put into a diesel is most common due to the petrol nozzle being smaller in diameter and easily fitting into a diesel filler neck. Why is it bad putting petrol in to a diesel fuel system Petrol is a solvent which will wash away the diesel that is oil based and can cause meatal on meatal contact in your fuel system and start to create internal friction as its metal surfaces grind together in the fuel system which can potentially create microscopic metal particles that will circulate around the fuel system and cause extensive damage to your vehicle. In most cases driving your car a short distance on the wrong fuel will not cause any damage to your vehicle or its fuel system but to prevent any damaged we recommend not turning your ignition as this will circulate the wrong fuel around your fuel system.
After we realised we had put petrol in our diesel car we searched for wrong fuel recovery companies that dealt with this problem. We picked Misfuel Direct for our wrong fuel rescue provider as they were the first company we found to give an idea of how much the service would cost. After phoning they gave us the actual cost for a fuel drain for our vehicle, came out promptly, drained the wrong fuel and put in 10 litres of diesel then followed us to the local garage in case we had a problem. All in all a thoroughly professional and highly satisfactory service. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them if you find yourself in this wrong fuel situation.
I mistakenly put premium 4- star into my wife’s diesel mondeo. Easily done. After initially calling my usual garage I was told they were unable to help and to find a specialist wrong fuel recovery company to empty the fuel tank after searching on google misfuelling service near me i found Misfuel Direct. I was given advice, a quote and eta. The gentleman whom arrived was courteous, knowledgeable and understanding. Within half an hour the car was back on the road. On my experience I would be more than happy to recommend the services of Misfuel Direct should you find yourself in the same predicament. Thanks to all at Misfuel Direct.
