Putting petrol in diesel car can cause serious damage to the engine. Even if you find out later on that you did the wrong thing, it could be too late for you to do anything about it.

Here’s how it would happen: You fill up your petrol tank and then drive to work like normal.

 

When you arrive at work, there is a black oily stain on the ground in front of your car that has not been there before and it looks like a large pool of oil and fuel. You quickly put the car into the park so as not to run over this and then notice the smell. That’s because the petrol spilled onto your exhaust pipe, which eventually made its way into your engine.

 

The high temperatures inside of your engine caused by the spilled petrol have caused serious damage; now, you need to replace parts of your engine or even start from scratch.
