WHAT DOES WRONG FUEL DO?
Your car simply won't run on the incorrect fuel. Diesel engines and petrol engines work differently: diesel does not ignite with a spark, like petrol - and petrol won't ignite without one. If you have put petrol in a diesel car - the most common problem - the petrol will wash away some of the oil the fuel pump for lubrication. In either type of fuel contamination, the wrong fuel needs to be removed. Water and AdBlue in fuel creates different problems but - since it sinks to the bottom your tank - it usually needs our specialist equipment to drain it fully.
