1. Risk it. The option we DON’T recommend.
Option 1, fill the car with diesel and hope for the best. If you’ve done the math and you’re willing to take the risk, or can easily afford a new car, then so be it. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
If you’re choosing to hope for the best based on the cost of getting the petrol pumped out and diesel pumped in, then consider this. That cost might seem like a lot right now, but how much is a new car worth? Could you afford to replace your car if this gamble doesn’t work out?
2. Get your car towed to a mechanics workshop for a drain, flush and refill.
This is a surprisingly common option, that seems mostly pushed by insurance companies that want you to use their towing services and preferred repairer’s mechanical services.
Getting a tow and then employing the services of a mechanic to drain your tank, however, are going to cost at least as much as a Fuel Swap callout—while being far less convenient. With how quick we can get out to you and get you back on your way, there’s really no reason to need to have your car towed to a shop.
