Misfuelling – petrol in diesel tank – in top 10 breakdown factors

A leading supermarket has compiled the top ten most frequent factors behind vehicle breakdowns. Four of the top ten could be put down to motorist error as they are, in no particular order – losing the keys, a flat battery, flat tyres (not checking tyre pressure) and pumping the wrong fuel into the fuel tank.  Putting petrol in diesel vehicle’s tank is known as a misfuel and, it is reckoned, around 150,000 motorists misfuel every year.

Misfuelling is an annoying and potentially expensive error. First there is the cost of the wrong fuel, then the cost of flushing or draining the tank, the cost of any repairs if the diesel motor was started and/or driven and the cost of a hire car if you needed to travel somewhere urgently. What’s more, let’s not forget the cost of the diesel that should have been bought in the first instance.

None of these, however, take account of any inconvenience the misfuel may have caused – chances are that the motorists were filling up at the fuel station because they needed to be somewhere.
