Have you put the wrong fuel in?
Read this!

Mixing up the fuel happens on a daily basis and is all too easy to do!! Sometimes we may be in a rush and just pick up the wrong nozzle or perhaps we have recently switched vehicles, misfuels happen.

Most commonly we find putting petrol in a diesel car is especially easy – and mistakenly putting diesel into a petrol tank is also possible. What matters most, is how you respond.

Here’s what we recommend

  • Do not attempt to start the car. Doing so can cause permanent damage and require costly repair work.
  • If possible try and get somone to help move the car to a safe place on the forecourt until help arrives. 
  • Call us: We can assist you and get you back on the road


The best way to avoid misfuelling? Well the obvious answer to that is: always fill your tank with the right fuel. 

But we all make mistakes…

While no one’s perfect and it’s impossible to avoid innocent mistakes from time to time, there are a few things we can bear in mind to reduce the risk of falling foul to mishaps at the pumps:

  • Before filling up  properly read the pump’s trigger label.
  • If you’ve just bought a new car with a different fuel engine, leave yourself reminders or prompts in the car to minimise the risk of you reaching for the wrong pump.
  • Try and avoid refuelling when you’re in a hurry, hungry or stressed. When our minds are somewhere else, we’re more likely to slip up.
  • For diesel owners, If you drive a diesel car and are worried about misfuelling, you can buy a device that fits into your filler neck to prevent you inserting the narrower petrol nozzle.
