Misfuelling your car and what to do!

Posted on May 13, 2015 at 8:48 PM
Ever put the wrong fuel in your car???
No 1 Rule if your in doubt DO NOT TURN YOUR ENGINE OVER
With the increase in diesel passenger cars available its becoming a common problem. Petrol in diesel engines acts as a solvent reducing lubrication and can cause damage to fuel pumps and in some cases if petrol is allowed to travel through to the engine complete break down which can result in needing a new engine. 
Always double check the fuel grade indicator on the pump before filling.
The risk of misfuelling is higher if:
you use an unfamiliar petrol station - don't assume hose colours are the same as your 'local' site
you switch between brands using different hose/nozzle colours and names of fuels 
you swap cars (using different fuel) at home or work - it's easy to 'forget' which car you're filling
you hire a car using different fuel to your normal car
you buy a new/second hand car using different fuel to your old car
you continue a conversation with passengers while filling up or worried about kids fighting in the car 
you are in a hurry/running late - is always a big problem try to plan ahead for rush moments 
Remember if in doubt DO NOT TURN YOUR ENGINE ON seek help immediately. Call us on 34080043 and arrange to have your fuel system looked at. A small fee for a tow truck is far better than thousands on a new engine!

Misfuelling is a real problem for us drivers. It happened to us one time when we were filling up the gas tank of my Volkswagen beetle, I accidentally filled it with diesel instead of unleaded gas and it messed up my engine big time. It spewed out black smoke and it sounded like my engine was going to give up anytime on the way. It was a big problem and it could ruin my engine. I immediately got home and remove the contents of my gas tank and immediately replaced it with the right gasoline. I've learned my lesson ever since that happened.
