Petrol in Diesel vs Diesel in Petrol

To understand misfuelling, it is easy to understand that to put diesel in a petrol tank is harder than to put petrol in a diesel tank. There is one main and major reason and that is the size of nozzle of a diesel pump. It generally won’t fit in the fuel tank. This size of nozzle gives the petrol vehicle drivers some protection against such type of misfuelling.

Filling a vehicle with a green petrol nozzle

To put the petrol in a diesel engine is worse on a diesel engine as compared to putting diesel in petrol engine. To understand why it happens, the diesel fuel itself is used to lubricate certain essentials parts of the vehicle. Whereas the petrol hasn’t got these lubricating qualities. When the diesel and petrol fuels mix together, the diesel floats on the top. That’s why when the vehicle starts drawing from the tank, it can cause damage quickly.
