It was about 6 pm on a Thursday and though we were promised a dry and fresh afternoon, it hadn't stopped raining! Mark and I were resting going over the weekend's footy, prepared for the 8th fuel drain that day to come in. Inevitably we had the phone call from a lady on a company trip who had gone to the Texaco filling station in Alum Rock and filled petrol in her diesel khaki green Nissan Leaf rental car in error. The unfortunate lady was rather affected apparently, crying "I can not believe that I've wrecked the vehicle! I am just so used to filling my petrol car I totally forgot I was driving a diesel!" I just asked her to take it easy and not to fret, and that such things sadly do happen. She was able to relocate the car to a safe spot and, because it was just a few minutes away from where we were, we were able to get to the customer almost instantly. The wrong fuel was extracted and she was able to return to the hotel she was lodging at. Although we got extremely wet, it was all worth the time to watch her drive away relaxed and not so worried. Yet another misfuel correction in Birmingham done well in my opinion!

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.
