It was about 8 pm on a Thursday and while we were guaranteed a dry afternoon, it hadn't ceased pouring! James and I were seated commenting on the weekend's rugby results, at the ready for the 8th fuel drain of the day to arrive. Eventually we received the call from a lady on a business trip who had pulled into the Esso filling station in Atherstone and put petrol in her diesel worn-out MINI Cooper rental by mistake. The unfortunate thing was pretty troubled apparently, crying "I still cannot believe that I have destroyed the car! I'm so accustomed to putting unleaded in my petrol car I had did not remember that I was running a diesel!" I just told her to settle back and not to fret, also that such things do happen. She managed to move the car into a protected position and, because it was just a few minutes away from us, we could get to her quickly. The incorrect fuel was drained and she could once again go back to the Premier Inn she was residing in. Even though we got thoroughly soaked, it was all rewarding seeing her drive away contented and not so stressed. A job in Warwickshire done well in my mind!

Wrong Fuel Assist Atherstone - Wrong Fuel in Car Atherstone

I had appreciated a perfect day cycling during my day off and felt delighted with myself the following working day as I set off to aid a young family who were on vacation in Atherstone. They conked out after filling petrol in their baby blue BMW 530, and the car was approximately half an hour's travel away. I turned up at their position and smiled as I listened to the wife chastising her partner for being so silly. "Exactly how could you actually manage to fill the car up using the wrong fuel?" she said to him. I tried to clarify that this happens everyday in Warwickshire and that it is nothing to be anxious about, even so he all the same had an ear bashing by his wife. Unfortunate lad. At any rate, I extracted the polluted fuel, flushed the motor and filled it up with the proper fuel. Watching as they drove off I shouted goodbye and considered what her indoors would ask me if ever I made the same blunder... I'd under no circumstances hear the end of it!

These guys came out and sorted out the situation right after my car died."

This was most definitely what is called the night shift. It was close to dawn and noone was around. It had been quite uneventful thus far, and Brian and I were loafing browsing a couple of old newspapers. This was a rare calm time in Warwickshire. Actually it was indeed so quiet that the moment the phone eventually rang it made me jump! The voice on the phone stated: "I've only just concluded my night shift and stupidly filled the wrong fuel in the diesel expensive Lexus LS". We got him to inform us where exactly he was and we left, getting to him in Atherstone no more than half an hour later. The incorrect fuel was extracted from the car and he thanked us for arriving so fast. As we were coming back to the depot we spotted two young women on the side of the highway who seemed to have a flat. Obviously we got out to help them change it, much to their elation.

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.
