Have you put petrol in a diesel car or vice versa?
First of all, don’t panic. Help is at hand. If you’re in Ashby, get on the phone with Castle Garage straight away and we’ll be able to help you.
What you mustn’t do is try to drive your car when it’s contaminated with the wrong fuel as this can cause serious and expensive damage. Don’t even turn the ignition key as, even though this won’t start the engine, it will switch on the dashboard lights which start the fuel pump.
What you should do is inform the petrol station staff – they might help you push your car out of the way – and then, get in touch with our team. At Castle Garage, we can drain off the wrong fuel, flush out the fuel system to remove any residue, and get you back on the road with minimum fuss.
Castle Garage Ashby are members of HEVRA (a network of independent garages that are vetted to ensure they have the correct tools, equipment, and qualifications to work on electric and hybrid models).
