Wrong Fuel Recovery In Liverpool

It’s more common an occurrence than you might think, particularly within busy cities like Liverpool. As horrifying as it is to  put diesel into an unleaded engine or unleaded into a diesel engine, you can rest assured that this mishap happens to 400 Britons a day. Whether it was that you put the wrong fuel into a new car by force of habit, or you simply weren’t paying attention to which pump you pulled up to, don’t worry. We have you covered.


First Things First

The very first thing to keep in mind is to keep your hand off the ignition. Don’t set off driving! If you’re still at the pumps, get the car clear without running the engine, getting someone nearby to help you if needs be. If you’ve already started driving, pull over as soon as it is safe to do so and stop the engine.

The reason for this is that it’s a running engine that’ll do the damage with the wrong fuel within it. Both types of engine, diesel and petrol, are designed for fuels with very different reactions to the temperatures that the wrong engine will put them through. A running engine will start to feed the fuel through the system, and that’s where it’ll do the most damage.
