Putting the wrong fuel in your car isn't the end of the world, hundreds of people will find themselves in the same situation today. Just follow this advice from Fuel Doctor and we'll have you back on the road in no time!
There really is nothing to worry about, it's an easy mistake to make and Fuel Doctor can quickly and easily rectify it.
Starting the engine will cause the contaminated fuel to circulate around the fuel system and could lead to engine damage.
Don't worry if you have started or driven the vehicle though, major damage is thankfully a rare occurrence and it is still possible for Fuel Doctor to drain and flush the contaminated fuel from the vehicle.
A quick call to your breakdown provider will soon show that you are most likely not covered for misfuelling. They will offer to recover the vehicle to their nominated garage for the wrong fuel removing however this will come at a price and can often be inconvenient.
Some breakdown services do provide a mobile wrong fuel removal service, get their quotation then call Fuel Doctor!
