It shouldn't be possible to accidentally fill a petrol car with diesel as diesel nozzles are purposely designed not to fit. If somehow you have filled a petrol car with diesel, avoid starting the engine to prevent the diesel feeding into it and ask your breakdown provider to tow your car to one of our autocentres.
Step 1: Select an Autocentre
