We carried out a wrong fuel retrieval job on the drive of a spectacular property in Axminster recently.

This was exactly an unsociable time to be awake. It was about 2 in the morning and nobody was around. It was fairly dead thus far, and Paul and I were loafing about looking at several old newspapers. This was a rare quiet hour in Devon. It was indeed so peaceful that when the telephone rang I jumped! The voice explained: "I just ended my evening shift and incredibly put the wrong fuel in my diesel compact BMW by mistake". I asked him to tell us exactly where he was and we headed out, reaching him in Axminster only half an hour later. The fuel was removed from the engine and he thanked us for coming out so rapidly. While we were returning home we found two women at the edge of the highway who seemed to have a puncture. Obviously we pulled over to change it, 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.
