We were called out for a misfuel Crickhowell today for petrol in a diesel Skoda Fabia. The elderly driver was completely flustered and worried they had damaged their car beyond repair! A quick call to Help Wrong Fuel and they were speaking directly to a qualified mechanic to put their minds at rest. If you fill your vehicle with the wrong fuel, it will not instantly break and you have not (at this point) damaged anything. It is continuous use of the vehicle which will cause issues.
If you have filled your vehicle with the incorrect fuel then don’t panic! Call us for FREE ADVICE on what to do next. Generally speaking, if you have put any more than £5.00 worth of petrol in your diesel tank, then it will need to come out. The latest diesel engines work at such low tolerances that the slightest amount of contamination in diesel will make the vehicle break down. If you have continued contamination, especially a solvent like petrol, this is when the damage happens to the high pressure pump and injectors.
