What to do – A common sense 'wrong fuel in car' checklist:


Being angry and upset with yourself won't fix things, and feeling that way leaves you in an emotional state where driving can be downright dangerous. Calm down, accept what's happened, and make sensible plans to get it sorted out.

5 tips to stop you making things even worse

It's important to do things in the right order, the order that ensures you don't make the problem any worse.

  • Adding the right fuel once you've added the wrong one, in an attempt to balance things out, always ends in disaster. Even if you've only put a tiny amount of the wrong fuel in the tank, you'll need to get the whole thing drained
  • Don't switch the ignition on... and never, ever start the engine. It might be tempting but you'll only send the wrong fuel mix around the fuel lines and into the engine itself
  • If you've left the garage, the first thing you should notice is a dramatic loss of power. Your engine will start running oddly – you'll notice the change in its sound - and smoke will probably pour out of the exhaust. Stop somewhere safe as soon as you can, before you stall
  • If you're on a motorway, get everyone out of the vehicle via the near-side doors and stay well away from the traffic
  • Check your breakdown cover or call us. While the wrong fuel is unlikely to cause permanent damage, you need to have it removed by a professional, someone who knows exactly what they're doing

After asking you a few simple questions and giving you a fixed price for the job, we'll send someone out to get you back on the road asap
