It was close to 10 pm on a Friday and although we were guaranteed a dry night, it had not given up on raining! Ray and I were sitting there discussing the recent rugby rankings, waiting around for the 8th call of the day to arrive. Before long we received the phone call from a lovely woman on a business expedition who had gone to the Tesco petrol garage in Chalfont St Giles and filled the wrong fuel in her diesel rust red Hyundai Sonata rental in error. She was pretty distressed it seemed, crying "I cannot believe I have destroyed the car! I'm just so accustomed to putting petrol in my petrol vehicle that I completely didn't remember that I was driving a diesel!" I just instructed her to calm down and not to worry, plus that such things unfortunately do happen. She was able to get the car to a secure area and, seeing that it was just a few minutes off from the office, we were able to reach the woman fairly quickly. The bad fuel was removed and she could once again go back to the motel she was lodging in. Despite the fact that we got thoroughly wet, it was all worthwhile to watch her drive off relaxed and a lot less worried. A job in Buckinghamshire done well in my opinion!

The 3 things you SHOULD know about petrol in diesel!

Waste Fuel Disposal

Got an old fuel tank in the rear of your premises full of aged, unusable or degraded fuel? We are able to assist you to dispose of it. We have been called out to a number of domestic and business properties in Buckinghamshire for the purpose of removing and recycling fuel storages. We are covered by the Environment Agency to be able to extract and dispose of waste fuel legally and safely.

Regardless of whether the fuel storage is a subterranean container, a mobile bowser, or perhaps a few drums in a storage shed, providing we are able to reach it, we are able to drain it.

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Fuel contaminated with water, irrespective of whether it's unleaded petrol or diesel, can be an important condition to address in a vehicle - especially in advanced common-rail engines.

Water or AdBlue in diesel or petrol can produce idling difficulties, irregular running, increased smoke and, if not remedied effectively, potentially damaged injectors. Having water in petrol is quicker to clean out as compared with water in diesel - this is largely due to the fact that diesel is an oil. However we can handle both circumstances fairly easily.

Be aware however that so long as the vehicle was run with the fuel contaminated with water it will likely need a new fuel filter to be fitted since the old one will undoubtedly be completely water-logged and useless.

Wrong Fuel in Car in HP8 Postcode - Chalfont St Giles Misfueling

What a good night's sleep! 7:30 am on a sunny Wednesday and I was off to assist an elder lady who put petrol in her diesel Ferarri red VW Touareg 2 in Chalfont St Giles. I'd been informed she had left the filling station and broken down along a backwater road on route to pay a visit to her godchildren. I plugged her location straight into the TomTom and arrived within an hour or so. I turned up at the destination and drained the wrong fuel from the vehicle. Whilst I was working she told me, "I'm becoming relatively absent-minded in my senior years and did not remember about the vehicle using diesel as I had only bought it a few days ago because my previous one, which I'd had for over thirty years, inevitably died on me". I completed the drain and she gifted me a Murray mint and thanked me for my hard work. What a pleasant Buckinghamshire woman!

How to find out if I put the wrong fuel in my car?

If you’ve just filled up at a petrol station and the cars starts to act a bit strange you might start to wonder if you accidentally put the wrong fuel in it.

Well, there are a few things to can check that will be able to tell you:

  1. How is the car responding? There are some very common misfuel symptoms which can be a good indicator of wrong fuel:
    • Loss of engine power – can feel like the car has run out of fuel
    • A lot of smoke (more than usual)
    • Engine coughing or starting to splutter
    • Won’t start – or keeps stalling.
  2. Look at your fuel receipt. It will state clearly if you filled up with diesel or unleaded. If you don’t have the receipt, you can often return to the petrol station where you filled up and give them the date and time (and pump) where you refueled and they will often be able to give you a VAT receipt.
  3. Smell it. Diesel and petrol have very distinctly different smells. Anyone familiar with the motor industry should be able to help you with this. Or you could even get another car to park alongside and smell the fuel caps of both, comparing them to determine what the fuel type is.
  4. Call us to come out and assess the car. In the majority of cases we will be able to tell if the car has been misfueled before beginning work on it. If we discover that the vehicle does not need a fuel drain, you will only be charged a call-out fee.
