The Costs of Misfuelling
It could cost you anywhere from $600 to $25,000 to repair the vehicle, a serious concern for both commercial and private car owners.
It makes up for hundreds of thousands of liters of wasted fuel every year in need of being disposed of ecologically.
It doesn’t take much to misfuel, losing focus at the pump for a brief moment is enough for the mistake to happen. Should this happen to you, there are two outcomes, both with their fair share of stress and costs.
- If you realise your mistake on the spot, do not start the engine and let the service station attendant know immediately. It will cost you around $600 to drain the tank, having it flushed, and filling the tank a second time with the correct fuel.
- If you misfuelled, drove off and only realised the mistake once your car starts to cough and splutter, things get complicated. You might make it home, or be stranded on the side of the road. You will need to call your local mechanic to have your car towed and fixed. Depending on how serious the damages are, you might need to replace filters, the fuel pump, your injector, a fuel tank or even an engine replacement. The bill to pay could cost you anywhere between $5,000 to $25,000.
Beyond the financial cost, a lot of energy and time will be spent to make up for that simple mistake.
