How common is it to misfuel?

Misfuelling is an incredibly common occurrence – AA figures show that over 150,000 people in the UK misfuel every year – that’s one every 3½ minutes. Usually the problem is petrol in a diesel rather than diesel in a petrol vehicle. This is down to the pump nozzle being larger than the filler neck on petrol cars.

We all lead increasingly busy lives and putting the wrong fuel in a vehicle is a simple mistake if your mind is elsewhere or you’re driving a different vehicle to your usual one.

Initially a lot of people are embarrassed and frustrated when they realise they have made the mistake but fortunately, mobile services such as are now on hand to quickly and efficiently solve the issues caused by putting wrong fuel in your car.
