Wrong Fuel in a car or van? Some Sound Advice from the Fuel Medic

What do you do if the wrong fuel has been introduced

to your vehicle fuel tank?

Contact the Fuel Medic. Our rapid response Engineer will be with you as soon as possible.

If you’ve just put the wrong fuel in, such as petrol in a diesel engine fuel tank or diesel in a petrol vehicle, then it’s best if you don’t try to start it. If you have driven the vehicle, don’t worry. If possible, just pull over where it’s safe and give us a call. Most of the time there won’t be any damage to your vehicle but it will need a fuel drain.

We specialise in decontaminating vehicles that have been filled with the wrong fuel (misfueled) and can quickly and safely remove fuel from any vehicle. In the majority of cases, fuel drains are pretty much straight forward and the Fuel Medic will inform you as to exactly what will be necessary if you have put the wrong fuel in your vehicle, to remedy your particular situation.

Our Engineers have many years of experience of solving vehicle misfueling problems and have encountered just about every possible situation where a driver has put the wrong fuel into a car or van. We like to think that this gives our customers piece of mind when dealing with the Fuel Medic; the chances are we’ve seen it all before and we can carry out a fuel drain and fuel system flush on your vehicle and have you on your way in next to no time.

24 Hour Call Out and Fast Response Service for the UK

We provide a 24 hour call out service covering the UK, where one of our fully qualified misfueling technicians aims to reach you within 60 minutes (response time is dependent on your location).

When the wrong fuel is introduced to a vehicle it may affect the Engine Control Unit (ECU). If this happens, using our specialist vehicle diagnostic equipment we can quickly check for any other issues with the vehicle fuel system and perform a system reset.

All of our Engineers are fully trained to deal with any vehicle which has been filled with the wrong fuel type and all are qualified to carry an SPA Passport without which they would not be able to carry out the fuel drain service on a petrol station forecourt.
