What are the symptoms of putting the wrong fuel in a car?

Many motorists leaving the Filling Station are unaware that they have put the wrong fuel in their tank. The engine starts normally as the contaminated fuel in the tank has not reached the engine yet. The following symptoms are not exclusive to misfuelling but if you have filled up recently and have one or more of the symptoms below then it is highly likely you have put the wrong fuel in.

Vehicle with a Diesel engine:

Slower acceleration – loss of power. Loud knocking/rattling sounds when accelerating. Acrid exhaust smoke or fumes that will sting your eyes and nose. Very harmful avoid breathing it in. The engine warning light (MIL) may come on. The engine stops running. The car struggles to start if at all.

Vehicle with a Petrol engine:

The engine starts to misfire and lose power. Excessive smoke from your exhaust. The engine cuts out. Unable to restart the engine. The ratio of wrong fuel to right fuel will effect which symptoms you get and how far you travel before getting them.
