Steps to take if you have started the engine or driven a short distance after misfuelling

13 June 2022 | Rachel Harris

1. Pull over when it is safe to do so and switch off your engine. This will limit any further damage to your vehicle.

2. Call a reputable fuel company, such as Auto Fuel Fix, who can drain your fuel tank, lines and fuel system.

3. Our technicians can provide a high quality fuel additive to add into your fuel tank. This will help to clean the fuel out from within the system and prevent any further damage to your vehicle.

The technician will also flush your system with the correct fuel and leave you with enough fuel to travel to your nearest petrol station.

4. Change your fuel filter as soon as possible.
