What a fantastic night of uninterrupted sleep! It was 7:30 on a warm Tuesday and I was on my way to help an old sweetheart who had put petrol in her diesel metallic yellow Skoda Octavia in Bargoed. I'd been advised she drove away from the petrol station forecourt and was broken down along a country lane en route to see her grandchildren. I got the location plugged straight into the TomTom and was with her inside 60 minutes. I arrived at the stricken lady and extracted the contaminated fuel in the car car. While I was doing the drain she said to me, "I'm becoming rather forgetful in my old age and didn't remember about the car using diesel seeing that I had only got it a couple of days back when my former one, which I had had for over thirty years, eventually stopped working".

Wrong Fuel in Car Bargoed - Petrol in Diesel Car Bargoed

I am not necessarily that excited about working Sundays, and a week ago was no different. I had only just come away from home filled with a lovely roast prepared for me by the better half, and I was on my way to assist a guy after he put the wrong fuel in his boss' Hyundai Excel. He was located in Bargoed so I was with him very quickly. Just as I arrived behind the vehicle and stepped out he told me "Praise God! I foolishly had my attention on other things and did not perceive I've put the wrong fuel in my petrol car. Is it likely I caused damage because of starting it?" I stated that generally there probably should not be problems and also I'd remove the fuel immediately for him. Naturally I removed the contaminated fuel from the vehicle and put in some correct fuel, and then yet another satisfied customer could continue his journey with no difficulty. The guy couldn't stop thanking me, and this helps make working on Sundays in Caerphilly just a small bit less painful for me personally!

A driver from Bargoed with her youngsters in her diesel cobalt blue Lexus IS-F had put £30 of petrol at the Texaco station. She contacted us sobbing and genuinely upset as she had never wrong fuelled and did not know what would happen to her vehicle in doing so. We told her that all should be alright and that she would be back in action in no time at all. When we got there she was visible upset but as our engineer started work on the fuel drain she simmered down as she saw that help was at hand and her vehicle wasn't ruined. She soon cheered up and was on the road again saying, "I just can't believe my bad luck putting the wrong fuel in my vehicle! Especially with the children on board."

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.
