It was just after eight pm on a Monday and although we were assured a rainless night, it hadn't stopped raining! James and I were relaxing talking over the weekend's rugby results, prepared for the 6th telephone call of the day to come in. Eventually we got a call from a woman on a company excursion who had pulled into the Tesco filling station in Bedford and put petrol in her diesel gorgeous Vauxhall rental in error. She was somewhat irritated apparently, telling me "I still cannot believe that I've wrecked the vehicle! I am so used to filling my petrol car that I totally did not remember I was operating a diesel!" We asked her to calm down and not to fret, also that these things regrettably do happen. She managed to get the car into a protected space and, as it was just a few miles from the office, we could arrive at the customer fairly quickly. The contaminated fuel was cleaned up and removed and she could go home to the Travelodge she was residing in. Although we got fairly drenched, it was all worthwhile to see her drive home contented and a lot less anxious. Another job in Bedfordshire done well in my opinion!

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.
