Have You Had a Fuelling Accident in Leicester?

Misfuelling – putting petrol in your diesel tank or filling your petrol tank with diesel – is something that happens hundreds of times a day to Britons up and down the country, and that’s no exaggeration.

The Dangers of Misfuelling

Left to themselves, the results range from the frustrating – an engine which refuses to start – to the actively damaging, as the chemicals in the fuel, in an engine not designed for them, eat away at the pipes and seals that channel them, doing more damage the longer the engine runs and the more they’re drawn through it – and, once the engine’s cycled at least once and fuel has flowed through it, they keep on doing damage over time even if the car sits there.

The good news is that, while this damage isn’t reversible, it’s at least slow to develop, and that means that there’s time to get the bad fuel out and flush the system.

The bad news is that just by running your engine with the wrong fuel in the tank you begin the process – so it’s much better if you can get the fuel out immediately.
