Wrong Fuel Rescue guide to Safety in the Toyota Camry
The Camry has a legacy of safety and protection, and now features the best of Toyota’s intelligent safety technology, Toyota Safety Sense, as well as exceptional passive safety features.
The Pre-Collision Safety System (PCS) detects potential collisions with vehicles, pedestrians and during daylight, cyclists. This intelligent safety technology constantly monitors in front and will even sense other lanes when turning across intersections. In some scenarios, it will help avoid or reduce the impact of a potential collision by using the brakes or Emergency Steering Assist.
In Ascent Sport and higher grades, Blind Spot Monitor uses radar to alert you to vehicles in blind spots, while Rear Cross Traffic Alert alerts you to vehicles approaching from either side, when reversing out of a parking space or laneway.

Working with the Road Sign Assist setting, it will also prompt you to adjust your set speed to the current road speed limit with the push of a small button.
Stay on track with the help of the Camry’s Lane Trace Assist which senses when you’re drifting out of your lane and will apply force to the steering wheel to help keep you in between the lines. Road Sign Assist recognises certain Australian speed signs and alerts you if the speed limit changes.

Need a Wrong Fuel Rescue in your Toyota Camry?
Mis-fuelling happens when you add the wrong fuel type to your vehicle, whether that be adding petrol in a diesel engine or diesel in a petrol engine. This is an unfortunately common mistake that can happen to anyone at any time, and more often than not, mis-fuelling your vehicle is a result of distraction, driver tiredness, or driver confusion. It’s an honest mistake and one shouldn’t feel embarrassed about it. We won’t judge you for this error, but your car won’t be too forgiving when misfuelling.
We at Wrong Fuel Rescue have come to the aid of many Toyota Camry drivers who have accidentally added the wrong fuel to their vehicle. However, you can prevent this from happening by paying close attention, and even if you make the mistake of mis-fuelling, Wrong Fuel Rescue is here to help.
It’s possible to mis-fuel your Toyota Camry by adding diesel to the petrol engine. Filling your Camry engine with the wrong fuel is a very serious but frequent mishap that can become quite costly if not addressed immediately, here’s why:
It’s a significant risk to have petrol contamination in a diesel vehicle – due to petrol having a higher calorific value and diesel having a higher compression ratio – meaning that you shouldn’t ignore the dangers that come with mis-fuelling. Repairing will most likely be expensive as this may cause damage to the engine’s internal components and fuel lines.
The petrol engine of the Toyota Camry is not made to cope with the properties of diesel. If you drive a petrol engine with diesel in the fuel tank, the fuel filter could possibly clog up because it’s not designed to handle the greasy property of diesel.
If the fuel somehow moves any further, it can cause problems for the fuel injectors. The mixture of fuels will result in soot build-up that might cause spark plug failure.
If you have filled up your Toyota Camry with the incorrect fuel, one or more of the following signs will occur:
- Slower acceleration
- A loud, knocking sound from the vehicle’s interior
- Lackluster performance
- Significant amounts of smoke emerging from the exhaust
- The vehicle suddenly cutting out.
- Stuttering movements from the vehicle whilst driving
- Clouds of smoke may emerge from the exhaust pipe
If you notice any, or all, of the above warning signs, your best bet is to pull over as soon as you can safely do so and call us at Wrong Fuel Rescue. In order to prevent further damage to your Toyota Camry or vehicle of choice, resist the temptation to keep driving to your nearest fuel station or repair shop. Instead, give Wrong Fuel Rescue a call and we will assist you in record time and get you safely back on the road.
