Wrong Fuel in Car Ambleside - Ambleside Misfuelling

Just had a great night of sleep! It was 7:00 in the morning on a warm Tuesday and I was on my way to assist an older lovely lady who had put petrol in her diesel worn-out Seat Alhumbra in Ambleside. I had been informed she had driven away from the petrol station forecourt and broken down in a backwater road on the way to see her grandchildren. I got her location plugged in the Satnav and arrived in less than an hour. I turned up at the car and removed the wrong fuel out of the car. Whilst I was working she said, "I am becoming relatively absent-minded in my old age and didn't remember about the vehicle needing diesel since I had just purchased it a few days back after my other one, which I had for more than thirty years, eventually gave up the ghost". I finished the job and she presented me a Murray mint and said thanks a lot. What a lovely Cumbria lady!

Wrong Fuel in Car Ambleside - Petrol in Diesel Car Ambleside

We a few weeks ago got a call from a man who had put the wrong fuel in his stylish Land Rover Range Rover Classic in Ambleside. He had broken down on the street. "It was terrific how speedy you people were in having a technician out to assist me when I erroneously filled my car with the wrong fuel. Thanks". Naturally we arrived rapidly and purged the engine after draining all the contaminated fuel from the diesel tank. When he arrived our engineer said the motorist was scowling, but was satisfied after the fuel drain.

A woman driving in Ambleside called us after she had managed to get her misfueled car to the office. She had put the wrong fuel in her diesel modern Mazda929 and, like countless prior to her, assumed that she could just top up her tank with diesel and it would run okay. The car was chugging and then it stopped when she came to the entrance of her work. We promptly went to work on the fuel drain following her call and got it repaired in an hour while she was at work. She came outside afterwards and thanked us saying, "I'm extremely glad you repaired my car."

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.
