If you've put the wrong fuel in your car, you're not alone. Every 3 minutes someone does this mishap. Putting unleaded in a diesel car is a common mistake, and diesel in petrol car also possible..

1. Don't try to start the car
  • This is important - starting the car can cause permanent damage and mean costly repair work.

  • Remove the keys from the ignition instead.

2. Get to a safe location
  • Put the car in neutral.

  • If you’re at the petrol station, inform the staff and ask someone to help you push the car to a safe spot, away from the forecourt.

3. Call us
  • Our wrong fuel doctors are on-hand to come out to you in Norfolk.

  • We drain the wrong fuel and put the right one.

  • You'll have enough of the correct fuel to get you going.

Petrol damages diesel engines because:
  • Diesel acts as a lubricant, helping the fuel pump to do its job.

  • Petrol does the opposite - it increases friction between parts in the diesel engine.

  • The friction isn't good news for your diesel engine.

  • The more petrol that's pumped through the diesel engine, the more damage it'll do.

  • That's why it's so important not to start the car.

Common rail (or HDi) diesel engines are particularly likely to be damaged by the wrong fuel. If there's a lot of damage, it could mean new fuel pumps, injectors, pipes, filters, fuel tank – or even a whole new engine.

If I've put the wrong fuel, can 5 litres of petrol damage a diesel engine?

Yes, 5 litres of petrol in a diesel engine is more than enough to cause catastrophic damage if left long enough, and particularly if you start the engine. Make sure to call us right away for fuel assistance on.

  • Many who make this mistake in Norfolk realise it at the pump, which is a good thing. The important thing is that you do not start the engine. Remove the keys from the ignition, put the car into neutral and push it out of the way before calling our Norfolk wrong fuel technician for a wrong fuel drain.

  • If you have already set off and realised that something is wrong, pull over and turn the engine off as soon as possible to avoid doing any further damage.

How petrol harms a diesel engine - What happens if petrol in diesel engine
  • Once the petrol has stripped the lubricant out of the fuel pump, tiny fragments of metal from the parts rubbing together will enter the fuel system. Many of these will be caught by the fuel filter. However, some will make it all the way to the injectors and that’s when the real damage is done.

  • Modern diesel injectors work to very fine tolerances, releasing a fine spray of fuel into the cylinders. Even the tiniest foreign body will block the jets, throwing everything out of kilter. It could cause a misfire or the engine might even seize.

What Happens When You Put Diesel in a Petrol Car?
  • When you put diesel in a petrol car and then start your engine, the diesel will clog your spark plugs and the fuel system, causing the engine to misfire. 

  • You may notice that your engine is smoking, keeps cutting out, or fails to start.

  • Whilst accidentally adding a little diesel to a petrol car is less serious than the other way around, you should still have the fuel system drained as soon as possible. 

Mistakenly putting diesel in a petrol car
  • The good news is that if you misfuel your petrol car, it's less serious than the other way round (petrol in diesel engine) and your action is less likely to cause any permanent damage to your fuel system or engine.

  • Mistakenly putting diesel into a petrol car is also less common, partly because diesel nozzles are larger than the filler neck on most petrol cars.

  • Common symptoms of misfuelling a petrol vehicle include a misfiring engine, excessive smoke from your exhaust and your engine cutting out and/or failing to restart

WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF YOU PUT ADBLUE IN A DIESEL TANK?

AdBlue in diesel tank can severely damage your engine, fuel lines, and injectors of your diesel car if poured accidentally AdBlue into the fuel tank. Do not worry, just don’t try to start your car and call Misfuelled Car Fix Freephone or Misfuelled Car Fix mobile number immediately. Our expert team will be there in no time and get you back on road, safely. We are trusted by so many insurance companies, dealers, and our esteemed customers – So be confident and let us serve you with your AdBlue in diesel tank issue.

AdBlue is a water-based fluid, uses specifically in diesel vehicles equipped with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology, and it is strictly not fuel or additive. It is simply a diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) to convert harmful gases into water and nitrogen.

AdBlue is corrosive liquid and has detergent and crystallization properties. This can have various devastating effects on your car’s engine and fuel assembly, such as;

 

1. Damaging the fuel lines, and especially the fuel pump by clogging the small inlets and valves.

 

2. As it gets crystallized, it can clog and damage the fuel filter, and fuel injectors as well. This can hamper the performance and fuel economy of the car.

 

3. As it decomposes the lubricants and other protective layers inside the engine, it can increase friction and heat generation, damaging the engine beyond repair.
