I’ve just put diesel in my car instead of petrol!!!!!
I am feeling…..Panic / Stupid / Worried
Step 1. (How I would like to feel…)
Clear Headed / Efficient / In Control
Step 2. (Quality Questions for self…)
How do I stay calm in this situation?
What do I need to do to make the car safe?
Who can I get to help me?
Step 3. (Practical steps leading to Positive Results…)
Accept it as “fait accompli” and commit to dealing with the situation (rather than fretting about your error).
Focus on staying calm and clear headed.
The diesel needs to be removed, so contact a specialist ‘diesel remover’, the fuel station usually have the relevant numbers (make sure they only call one person out).
