It was just before 6 pm on a Thursday and despite the fact that we were guaranteed a dry and fresh afternoon, it had not ceased pouring down rain! Ray and I were resting discussing the sports rankings, waiting for the seventh telephone call that day to arrive. Before long we had a call from a lady on a business excursion who had pulled into the Tesco filling station in Cock Alley and put petrol in her diesel mint green Nissan 350Z Roadster lease car. She was pretty affected apparently, saying "I still cannot believe I have destroyed the vehicle! I am so used to putting unleaded in my petrol car that I totally didn't remember that I was running a diesel!" I just instructed her to settle back and not to fret, also that such things sadly can happen. She managed to get the car to a protected space and, because it was no more than a short distance away from where we were, we could arrive at the customer quickly. The incorrect fuel was removed so she was able to go home to the hotel she was residing at. Although we got fairly wet, it was all worth the time to watch her drive off relaxed and much less concerned. Yet another job in Derbyshire well done in my books!

The 3 things you SHOULD know about a Misfuel!

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Water contaminated fuel, irrespective of whether it is unleaded petrol or diesel, is actually an important situation to handle in a vehicle - particularly in modern common-rail engines.

Having water or AdBlue in the fuel will likely result in idling problems, lumpy running, increased smoke and, if it is not sorted out effectively, potentially ruined injectors. Water in petrol is quicker to drain than water in diesel - this is mostly due to the fact that diesel is an oil. Even so we can take care of both cases rather easily.

Remember however that so long as the vehicle was run with the fuel contaminated with water it will quite possible need a new fuel filter fitted since the old one will undoubtedly be thoroughly water-logged and useless.

Out of Fuel Service

Out of fuel in Cock Alley (out of gas - as an American would say)? We operate a complete Derbyshire Run Out of Fuel Service. We're able to help to re-fill your car any time you are stuck on the motorway, on the side of the road far from a petrol station, or even at home.

A lady from Cock Alley with her children in her diesel matte black Hyundai HED-5 had put £40 of petrol at the Co Op service station. She contacted us weeping and really upset as she had never put petrol in a diesel and didn't know what could happen to her car because of it. We told her that everything should be alright and that she would be up and running soon. When we arrived on scene she was visible upset but while our engineer got to work on the fuel drain she simmered down since she noticed that something could be done and her vehicle wasn't ruined. She quickly cheered up and was on the road again saying, "I can't believe my luck putting petrol in my diesel car! Particularly with the little ones in the back."

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.
