Petrol in a Diesel Car? Things to do

Filling a car or any other vehicles fuel tank with unleaded fuel is called misfueling and this is known as a costly mistake. Either you put petrol in a diesel car or diesel in a petrol car, a vehicle might have to bear damages. There are many reasons with which it can be explained why putting diesel in petrol car is bad and putting petrol in a diesel car is even worst. The simplest reason you should avoid filling your car, garden tractor or any other vehicle with unleaded is fuel is that every automobile is built with its unique structure and requirements originally.Whether its Ford, Audi, BMW, Honda, Nissan, Toyota or any car, Putting petrol in a diesel car is recoverable in some circumstances.

Diesel fuel pumps working presently operate at high pressureand if you put petrol in a diesel car, you can understand what the consequences would be. There would be huge reduction in lubrication (because petrol and diesel are way different in terms of lubrication and qualities. Thus those parts which are manufactured to work with diesel would resist working with petrol and the first damage would be to the fuel pump.

Experts say if you’ve put wrong fuel in your car, very first instruction is don’t start the car engine. This is the easiest way to minimize chances of damage. But if you’ve already turned the engine on and drove you car, still upto 100 meters distance recovery is easy. Actually when petrol starts mixing up with diesel and it’s circulation into fuel pipes and engine parts starts the real damage. Those engine components which are meant to use with petrol as fuel, are obviously manufactured with keeping this key point in consideration. Thus using wrong fuel would cause friction and it will start damaging the internal parts of engine immediately if the vehicle is not turned off and kept on running. How much damage would be directly proportionate with how long engine had been working after wrong fueling!

Now, coming to the things you can do in such situation. First of all be mentaly active and attentive always when you are filling your vehicle’s fuel tank. Suppose if you put petrol in diesel car and you are on a journey to a long distance; such a big trouble. Immediately after you spotted wrong fueling, call some fuel doctor which can recover your car to make it able to run on road again. Don’t be panic, though filling unleaded fuel is a mistake but it is recoverable. When you’ll call fuel doctor for wrong fuel recovery, an experienced representative would be sent at your wanted place as soon as possible. Just tell him/her the details and rest of the work would be done by them.

When anyone puts petrol in a diesel car or any wrong fuel in his car, Fuel Doctor i.e. Dr. Fuel, expert unleaded fuel recovery expert comes with mobile fuel drainage van with all the necessary equipment ready to solve your query. They’ll evoparte wrong fuel out of your car’s fuel tank, and from engine parts, fuel pump and other pipes, and then they’ll inject fresh, prescribed fuel in your car.
