So, what happens if you put petrol in a diesel car?

Because this will cause a chemical reaction as the two substances mix to create a solvent.

Therefore, solvent travels around the engine components and attacks the lubrication on the fuel pump because of this friction is created. The friction debris from the pump spread around the engine and therefore travel into the fuel injectors causing failure.

The fuel system becomes contaminated i.e. filter, lines, etc this becomes a very costly mistake.

Our vans carry specialist draining equipment and chemicals to offer a service that is convenient and value for money.

We are finding that many DIY attempts at draining fuel tanks have had disastrous consequences because you really do need professional equipment and experience when it comes to getting the job done correctly.
