It was just before 6 pm on a Friday and though we were guaranteed a dry and fresh afternoon, it hadn't stopped pouring down rain! Ray and me were relaxing commenting on the recent football rankings, waiting for the next job of the day to arrive. In due time we got the phone call from a lovely woman on a business excursion who had pulled into the Shell filling garage in Sandhills and filled the wrong fuel in a diesel sky blue Audi S4 hire car. The poor lady was pretty distressed by the sounds of it, telling me "I simply cannot believe that I have messed up the car! I am so used to filling up my petrol car I completely did not remember that I was using a diesel!" I advised her to calm down and not to worry, plus that such things sadly can happen. She managed to move the vehicle into a protected area and, seeing as it was no more than a short distance off from the office, we could find the customer right away. The incorrect fuel was removed so she could return to the motel she was living at. Despite the fact that we got pretty drenched, it was all rewarding to see her drive away calm and much less anxious. Another fuel drain in Dorset done well in my mind!

Wrong Fuel Assist Sandhills - Wrong Fuel in Car Sandhills

A man had broken down just near a street in Sandhills. His sombre grey Audi V8 motor had stopped functioning and he had no clue what was awry until eventually he noticed he had put the wrong fuel in his diesel car. He called us to request a fuel drain and it was then when he told us: "I cannot believe that I did not know that I had put the wrong fuel in my car." He claimed that he had gotten virtually no rest the day before and that must have been the reason why.

Wrong Fuel in Car Sandhills - Petrol in Diesel Car Sandhills

I'm not excessively hot for doing the job on weekends, and the other day was the same. I had only just departed the wife and kids after eating a lovely lunch made by the missus, and I was off to help a fellow because he filled the incorrect petrol in his brand new Audi A5. He was located in Sandhills thus it wasn't a long time before I got to him. Just as I arrived behind the car and started work he told me "Praise the Lord! I foolishly had my thoughts on something else and didn't ascertain I had put diesel in my petrol car. Have I brought on some damage through running it?" I determined there should not be any harm and that I would personally drain the contaminated fuel immediately. It goes without saying that I got the contaminated fuel drained from the vehicle and put in the appropriate fuel, and yet another pleased client had the ability to continue on their ride without the hassle. He did not stop saying thanks to me, and that is what helps make carrying out work on Sundays in Dorset that little bit less painful to me!

Wrong Fuel Doctor Sandhills - Fuel Rescue Sandhills

A customer from Sandhills with her kids in her diesel green Renault Kangoo had filled her vehicle with £45 of petrol at the Tesco service station. She phoned us crying and genuinely worried as she had never put petrol in a diesel car previously and did not know what would happen to her vehicle because of it. We reassured her that all would be fine and that she would be back in action very quickly. When we got there she was visible distressed but as our technician started work on the fuel drain she calmed down because she saw that help was at hand and her car wasn't unfixable. She soon enough cheered up and was up and running saying, "I can't believe my bad luck putting petrol in my diesel car! Especially with the youngsters on board."

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 refuelled and they will often be able to give you a VA 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 misfuelled 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.
