If you’ve gone and put diesel in a petrol car engine then you’re going to need a fuel drain service fast. Timing is the most important factor when misfuelling your car. Obviously petrol cars are not designed to run on diesel, so by acting fast you will prevent any extensive damage to your vehicle.Firstly it’s important that you don’t try and start your car and drive it. This circulates the wrong fuel around your car, causing damage to the fuel system and pump. By finding a wrong fuel recovery and solution company, you’ll be able to rectify the problem in no time at all. Wrong fuel removal is easy with a misfuelling specialist as they will come to wherever your are located, drain and clean your engine and flush the diesel fuel out. They will then fill your car up with the correct type of fuel. Providing no damage has been caused you can then carry on your journey, with a minimum cost to your pocket. It is also best to note that if you’ve only filled your petrol car up with less than 5 litres of diesel, you can fill the rest of your car engine up with petrol and drive off. You should have a bit of smoke coming from your exhaust, but it shouldn’t damage your engine.
