Shimoga: Sandalwood actor Vijay Raghavendra’s car was filled with the wrong fuel on Tuesday, August 11.

The incident took place at one of the famous fuel stations in the district.

Vijay Raghavendra along with his family had come to Shimoga to see Jog falls and the incident took place when they were going back to Bengaluru.

As per the sources, when Raghavendra went to the fuel station the attendant erroneously put diesel into the petrol vehicle.

Following the incident, the petrol bunk owner and the staff apologized to the actor. The car was later sent to service station.

Reportedly, putting the wrong fuel in a car is not that uncommon as it might seem. As many as 150, 000 people in the UK accidentally filled the wrong fuel in their car every year. The damage and repair cost varies on a case to case basis.

Experts suggest the damage can be nominal if the mistake can be spotted at the fuelling station itself, then it can be rectified by drawing out the wrong fuel from the car. But if one turns on the ignition, the repair costs can be very expensive and the car should be stopped as soon as possible if the engine is turned on.

A petrol engine running on diesel can break the injection pump and the overheating caused by the unburnt diesel can also result in overheating of the catalyst.
