Wrong Fuel in Car Barnard Castle - Petrol in Diesel Car Barnard Castle

I'm not ever excessively inclined to doing work on Sundays, and last week was the same. I'd just left the family filled with a wonderful lunch made for me by the better half, and I was on the way to sort out a gentleman who filled the incorrect petrol in his customised Lexus LX. He was situated in Barnard Castle therefore I arrived there very quickly. As I drove up behind the car and stepped out he explained to me "Praise the Lord! I stupidly had my attention on other things and failed to ascertain I've put the wrong fuel in my petrol vehicle. I need to know if I inflicted some problems by starting it?" I said generally there shouldn't be any harm and that I would personally get the wrong fuel drained as soon as possible. Obviously I got the contaminated fuel drained from the vehicle and filled up with the suitable fuel, and then yet another contented customer had the ability to continue his trip with no fuss. He could hardly stop saying thanks to me, and that can make operating on weekends in Durham just that tiny bit less painful for me personally!

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.
