This was most definitely an unsociable time to be awake. It was roughly sunrise and hardly anyone was stirring. It was pretty dead until now, and Mark and I were sitting about browsing some old newspapers. This was an uncommon restful time in Bedfordshire. It was indeed that peaceful that when the phone rang I leaped! The voice told me: "I finished my evening shift and foolishly poured the wrong fuel in the well-used Seat Leon by mistake". We asked him to let us know where exactly the vehicle was and we set off, getting to him in Arlesey no more than half an hour later. The incorrect fuel was taken out from the engine. He said thank you for coming out so rapidly. As we were heading back to the depot we noticed two young ladies at the side of the highway who seemed to have a flat tyre. Accordingly we pulled up to change it, to their delight.

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.
