It was after 9 pm on a Wednesday and despite the fact that we were guaranteed a dry and fresh evening, it had not stopped pouring! Paul and I were relaxing going over the recent footy, at the ready for the 8th fuel drain for the day to come in. Before long we received a phone call from a woman on a company expedition who had arrived at the Tesco filling garage in Acle and put the wrong fuel in a diesel creamy white Suzuki Reno rental car in error. She was very troubled it seemed, telling me "I simply can't believe I've destroyed the car! I am just so accustomed to putting unleaded in my petrol vehicle I completely didn't remember that I was running a diesel!" I just told her to relax and not to fret, and also that such things do happen. She had managed to move the vehicle to a safe spot and, since it was just a few miles from the office, we could find her without delay. The contaminated fuel was cleaned up and removed and she could go home to the motel she was residing at. Despite the fact we got extremely wet, it was all rewarding seeing her drive home relaxed and less concerned. Yet another misfuel correction in Norfolk well done in my mind!

Wrong Fuel in Car Acle - Acle Misfuelling

Ahhh, that was a quality night of uninterrupted sleep! 7:00 in the morning on a sunny Saturday and I was on the way to help an older lovely lady after she had put the wrong fuel in her diesel light blue Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 in Acle. I had been informed she drove away from the filling station forecourt and pulled up in a backwater road on route to pay a visit to her grandchildren. I got her location punched straight into the Satnav and got there within an hour or so. I got to the destination and removed the wrong fuel out of the car. Whilst I was doing the work she said, "I have been becoming quite absent-minded in my old age and forgot about the car using diesel because I'd just purchased it a short while ago after my other car, which I had had for more than 25 years, finally died". I completed the job and she offered me a toffee and thanked me for my efforts. What a precious Norfolk lady!

We recently got a phone call about a motorist who had put the wrong fuel in his buff Range Rover Classic in Acle. He had ground to a halt on the road. "I couldn't believe how rapid you were in having a fuel drainer out to aid me when I mistakenly filled my diesel car with petrol. Thank you". As you can imagine we arrived on the scene rapidly and flushed the engine after flushing all the unleaded from the diesel tank.

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.
