What happens if you put diesel in a petrol car?

What makes it tricky is that the diesel nozzle simply won't fit into the filler gap of a petrol-engined vehicle.

If you do somehow manage to shoehorn diesel into a petrol car, don't panic, because this is less catastrophic than the other option discussed above, but it's still vital not to start the engine. Diesel will cause serious damage to a petrol engine if you allow it to circulate, particularly if your car is of the direct-injection variety.

What should I do then?

The good news is that there are wrong-fuel solutions, and that the most important thing to do is to recognise your mistake before you get back in the car.

As long as you don't turn the key, or press the start button, the damage can be kept to a minimum.

You need to put your car in neutral, release the hand brake and get someone who feels sorry for your mistake to help you push it away from the pumps to a safe parking spot.

Now you'll need to call for professional help, because you're going to need a fuel drain, to get that errant petrol the hell out of there.


This is the best-case scenario, and hopefully your blushes can be saved with minimal expense.

If you do drive away from the petrol station with the wrong fuel in your car, you'll notice the problem pretty quickly as your engine will make some truly horrible sounds, and if you keep going you'll probably grind to a halt not far down the road.

Again, quick action is the key. The sooner you stop, the more chance you'll have of being able to rectify the problem. Call for help, and pray to whatever gods you believe in that you haven't killed your car.

If you accidentally put diesel in petrol car, it can have various consequences. Here's what you need to know:

Diesel in a Petrol Car:

When diesel is added to a petrol car, it can cause damage to the fuel system. Diesel fuel does not ignite as easily as petrol, and the spark plugs may struggle to ignite the mixture, resulting in misfires or failure to start. If you put diesel in a petrol car, do not start the engine and contact a mechanic. They will likely need to drain and flush the fuel system.

In any case, if you realize you've put the wrong fuel in your car, here are some general tips:


1. **Do not start the engine:**

Starting the engine can circulate the wrong fuel throughout the system, potentially causing more damage.

2. **Contact a professional:**

Call our expert service in Norwich to assess the situation and provide guidance on the next steps to minimize damage and repair costs.

3. **Have the fuel system flushed:**

In most cases, the fuel tank will need to be drained and flushed to remove the incorrect fuel. The fuel filter and other components may also need to be inspected or replaced. Remember, it's always essential to consult with a professional mechanic as soon as possible to minimize any potential damage and ensure the correct steps are taken to resolve the issue.
