Will Putting The Wrong Fuel In My Car Cause Damage?

Misfuelling your vehicle can cause damage, however it is preventable. It’s important that you do not turn on the ignition as this can cause the contaminated fuel to circulate through the fuel system, which can take longer to remove.

Diesel fuel pumps work on very fine tolerances and are lubricated by the diesel, however petrol acts as a solvent which reduces the lubrication which can cause damage to the metal parts if not lubricated properly.

How Does Fuel Draining Work?

Most fuel drain jobs can take anywhere from 15-30 minutes depending on the amount of fuel used, tank size and make and model. Using the latest fuel drain equipment, we will:

• Empty and drain the wrong fuel from your tank
• Remove fuel from the fuel line and filter
• Replenish your fuel tank with correct fuel
• Pump the new fuel through the fuel system to remove any traces of old fuel
