What if you've put the wrong fuel in your vehicle?
Do not start the engine or turn on the ignition, this can circulate the contaminated fuel around your fuel system and increase the risks of potential damage
If you've done either of the above, call RAC as soon as possible. Time is a critical factor when the wrong fuel is in your vehicle system and it needs removal and flushing through ASAP
Call RAC Fuel Patrol on: 0800 051 7845
