How Will I Know If I’ve Misfuelled in Oxford?
It’s quite easy to misfuel your vehicle as sometimes we get lost in our thoughts and fill our cars up without even realising what we’re putting in.
If you’ve been driving and experienced any of the following symptoms then you car may have the wrong fuel in your car:
• Loss of engine power
• Problems starting the car
• Engine cutting out, jumping or coughing
• Excessive fumes
Driving on the wrong fuel can damage your car, which is why it’s so important that you do not turn on the ignition. Petrol is a natural solvent and whereas diesel is more lubricant, so when petrol is circulated through a diesel fuel system it can cause friction between the parts that can then damage them.
The sooner the fuel is drained, the less chance there is of any future damage being caused.
What Should I Do If I’ve Put The Wrong Fuel In My Car?
To ensure no damage is caused to the car and fuel system, it’s important that you do not turn the ignition on as once the wrong fuel is circulated it can create irreparable damage.

• Avoid turning on the ignition or if you’ve started driving pull over and turn the ignition off
