You’d be surprised how many of us put diesel in a petrol engine or unleaded in a leaded tank…
We’ve all been known, on occasion to be absent-minded, have a mild case of temporary memory loss or simply make a mistake. Putting the Wrong Fuelling in your car can be an embarrassing, time-sensitive and an expensive mistake.
So, what do we do in case of misfuelling in our vehicles?
Whether you are at home, in a garage or perhaps on the side of the road, help is at hand but it is important you follow these steps:
- Do not put the key in the ignition, do not start the engine and keep the car in neutral – this will lessen the chances of the incorrect fuel circulating in the engine, it will make life easier by causing less damage to the vehicle.
- Keep calm – Though frustrating, do not panic, this won’t help the situation. Call Dr.Fuel, which will not only help the situation, we will solve it!
- Make sure your car is in a safe place – if possible see if someone can help push your car to a safe spot. It is important that safety comes first for you and others around you.
