It was around 8 pm on a Monday and even though we were guaranteed a dry and fresh afternoon, it hadn't stopped pouring! Ray and me were seated there going over the recent golf, waiting for the sixth fuel drain to arrive. Finally we had the call from a young lady on a company trip who had pulled into the BP petrol station in Barnstaple and filled petrol in her diesel new-shape Mercedes Sprinter 2500 rental car by mistake. She was fairly affected by the sounds of it, saying "I can't believe that I've destroyed the vehicle! I'm just so used to filling up my petrol vehicle I totally forgot that I was operating a diesel!" I instructed her to relax and not to be concerned, and that things like this unfortunately happen. She was able to maneuver the car to a protected area and, since it was only a few minutes away from the office, we could get to her rather quickly. The wrong fuel was extracted and she could get back to the motel she was residing at. Despite the fact that we got thoroughly soaked, it was all worth it to watch her drive home calm and much less apprehensive. Yet another fuel drain in Devon done well in my mind!

Wrong Fuel in Car Barnstaple - Barnstaple Misfuelling

What a good night's uninterrupted sleep! It was 7:30 in the morning on a bright Saturday and we were en route to assist an old lovely lady who put petrol in her diesel new-shape VW Touareg in Barnstaple. I'd been advised she had driven away from the filling station forecourt and stranded along a country road on the way to see her grandchildren. I popped the location in the TomTom and arrived inside an hour. I arrived at the location and extracted the wrong fuel out of the car. As I was doing the work she told me, "Now I'm becoming rather forgetful in my senior years and forgot about the vehicle using diesel seeing that I had only bought it several days ago right after my old one, which I had for more than twenty years, eventually broke down". I got the drain done and she presented me a toffee and thanked me for my hard work. Such a pleasant Devon lady!

I appreciated a fantastic day cycling on my day off and felt delighted with myself the next day as I was en route to aid a new family holidaying in Barnstaple. They stopped after putting the wrong fuel into their sky blue Toyota MR2, and they were around half an hour away. I turned up at their position and smirked while I heard to the girl telling her partner off for being so daft. "Precisely how could you even manage to put the wrong fuel in the vehicle?" she asked him. I tried to tell her that this kind of thing occurs quite frequently in Devon and that it's truly nothing to worry about, however he in spite of everything got his ear bent by his missus. Unlucky boy. Anyway, I drained all of the polluted fuel, gave the engine a flush and filled them up with the right fuel. While watching them drive away I shouted goodbye and considered what my missus would tell me in the event that I made the same error... I'd personally under no circumstances live it down!

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.
