Petrol in Diesel Car
Putting petrol in a diesel vehicle is a very common mistake when you are in hurry can be destructive to the engine if not removed on time. Petrol in a diesel vehicle acts as a solvent, reducing lubrication and can cause damage to your car engine and diesel pump. Please make sure that you do not start your ignition as this circulates the petrol through the system and can cause contamination to other parts also.
If you’ve mistakenly added petrol to a diesel engine, you may observe the following changes–
- A large amount of smoke emitting from your exhaust

- Engine failure
- Loud noise when you accelerate
- Slow acceleration
