Putting petrol into a diesel car by mistake is the most common form of misfuelling. It’s quite easy to do because petrol nozzles are smaller than the diesel nozzle and they easily fit into a diesel vehicle’s filler neck. As well as being the most common misfuelling mistake, it can also be the most serious.
Diesel fuel acts as a lubricant and helps the fuel pump in your car perform as it should. When you accidentally put petrol to a diesel tank this makes it act more like a solvent and prevents the diesel from lubricating the system, the more the fuel is pumped around the system the more damage it can do. It is essential that you stop your car and turn off the engine as soon as you realise you put the wrong fuel in your in Exeter. Failure to do so and get expert help from ourselves and it could lead to engine damage.
Mistakenly putting diesel into a petrol car is much less common than mistakenly putting petrol into a diesel car. This is because the nozzles for petrol and diesel pumps at petrol stations are different sizes. The diesel nozzle is physically larger than the petrol filler neck on most cars which means this type of misfuelling is much less common than putting petrol in a diesel vehicle. Whilst the potential damage to your engine isn’t as bad as putting petrol in a diesel car, misfuelling a petrol car with diesel can cause serious damage to your car so call Wrong Fuel as soon as you realise.
The best way to avoid putting the wrong fuel in your vehicle in Exeter is to double check the writing on the pump and not rely on the colour of the handle or hose. We understand that it can easily be done, especially if you are distracted or drive several different cars and use lots of different fuel stations. Take a look at these Five simple steps to prevent putting the wrong fuel in your car in Exeter:
Tip 1: Never rely on the colour of the handle or the hose at the petrol station. Double check the label on the pump itself and on the handle to make sure it is the correct fuel for your vehicle.
Tip 2: If you have purchased a new car that is a different fuel type from your previous car’s, think about leaving some little reminders for yourself in and around your car. So if you have a button to open your fuel cap, you could stick a little note. You may even want to put a note on the inside of your fuel filler flap too.
Tip 3: When using a fuel station, try to keep your concentration whilst at the pump. By not letting your mind wandering off will prevent you from putting the wrong fuel in your car.
Tip 4: Try not to refuel on the run and when you are in a hurry. The more rushed or stressed you are when refuelling then there's more chance that you could put the wrong fuel in your tank.
Tip 5: If you own a diesel car and have misfuelled before or simply want to prevent yourself from ever doing it, there are devices that you can buy to fit to your car to prevent you from putting petrol in a diesel car.
