It was close to 7 pm on a Thursday and while we were guaranteed a rainless night, it hadn't ceased raining! Ryan and I were seated there talking over the weekend's rugby results, waiting around for the 6th telephone call that day to come in. In due time we had the call from a lovely women on a business excursion who had pulled into the Shell filling station in St Mary Bourne and filled petrol in her diesel customised Honda CR-Z rental by mistake. The unfortunate thing was quite agitated apparently, crying "I cannot believe that I've destroyed the vehicle! I'm just so accustomed to putting unleaded in my petrol car that I had forgot I was using a diesel!" I advised her to settle back and not to fret, plus that things like this unfortunately happen. She was able to maneuver the vehicle into a secure area and, since it was no more than a few minutes off from where we were, we were able to arrive at the woman without delay. The contaminated fuel was drained so she was able to get back to the Travelodge she was residing at. Despite the fact we got pretty soaked, it was all worth the effort to watch her drive off contented and not so apprehensive. Yet another fuel drain in Hampshire done well in my mind!

The 3 things you MUST know about a Misfuel!

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Fuel contaminated with water, whether it's petrol or diesel, can be a serious situation to address in a motor vehicle - particularly in modern-day common-rail engines.

Water or AdBlue in diesel or petrol can potentially lead to idling problems, irregular running, increased smoke and, if not dealt with fully, possibly blown injectors. Having water in petrol is easier to get rid of when compared with water in diesel - this is mainly because diesel is an oil. However we can resolve both cases fairly expediently.

Be aware though that if the vehicle was run on the fuel contaminated with water it will probably need a new fuel filter to be installed seeing as the old one will undoubtedly be completely water-logged and unusable.

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.
