Petrol in Diesel vs Diesel in Petrol

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 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.
