Get Wrong Fuel Drained from Your Car

A lot of us make the mistake of putting the wrong fuel in our vehicles, in-fact every four minutes, 1 person makes this error. It is an easy mistake to make. Once you make this mistake a sudden panic kicks in and you think the engine is ruined and you would face a huge bill for the lapse in concentration.

Fuel Drain from Diesel Cars

When you fill a diesel Car with petrol there is a serious risk that you will damage your engine. Petrol acts as a solvent with repairs coming up to hundreds or even thousands of pounds if the engine ceases as the contaminated fuel goes through the system. Metal particles from the pump could be deposited in the fuel which risks further damage.

The best way to get you back on the road is to drain the tank safely by experts and get the filter cleaned or replaced. Fortunately, all these services are available at GMM1 and are done by experts with years of experience in this field. This is the best way to protect your engine from damage.

However, don’t be harsh on yourself as hundreds of thousands of drivers have done the same, 150,000 a year to be precise, so you are not alone.

Some Wrong Fuel Drain Facts

One person every four minutes fills their vehicle with wrong fuel which can wreak havoc on the interior workings, with repair bills amounting to hundreds of millions of pounds every year. Putting diesel in a petrol engine will cause your engine to cut out and stop working. As diesel doesn’t ignite in the same way that petrol does, the spark plugs which ignite the fuel in your petrol engine will have no effect.

If you have put wrong fuel in your vehicle, follow these simple steps to get your engine started.

  • If you want to get your engine to start again, all the fuel needs to be flushed from the fuel system and replaced with petrol or diesel. Call us now to get that done by our wrong fuel experts.
  • It’s hard to fill a petrol tank with diesel because diesel fuel nozzles are designed to not fit in petrol vehicles.
  • However, it is all too easy to accidentally fill your diesel-fuelled vehicle with petrol.
  • Petrol does a lot of damage to your diesel engine as it finishes the lubricant used to keep it ticking over and cause metal components to grate against each other which causes them to crack and decompose.
  • This just doesn’t damage the fuel pump and injection systems, it can also destroy the engine completely.

What if Wrong Fuel is Not Drained from Car?

If wrong fuel is not drained properly from your Car, in a best case scenario, the fuel pump and injection systems will likely need to be replaced, but depending on the extent of the damage the Car’s engine could be wrecked beyond repair. Don’t despair as GMM1 has all the latest equipment alongside technical expertise needed to clean your vehicle’s engine and get you back on road ASAP.
