Wrong Fuel Assist Bedworth - Wrong Fuel in Car Bedworth

I had a great evening cycling during the weekend and was feeling contented the following morning as I headed out to assist a young family holidaying in Bedworth. They had conked out after adding diesel into their pristine Lexus IS F, and the car was approximately half an hour's drive away. I arrived at their location and laughed to myself as I listened to the wife telling her spouse off for being so confused. "Just how could you even be able to fill the vehicle up by using the wrong fuel?" she demanded of him. I wanted to explain that this problem goes on everyday in Warwickshire and that it is nothing to stress about, even so he in spite of everything got an ear bashing by his missus. Unfortunate chap. Anyways, I drained all the polluted fuel, gave the motor a flush and filled it up with the correct fuel. While watching them drive off I mouthed good-bye and thought about what my missus would do to me in the event that I did the very same thing... I would never hear the end of it!

Wrong Fuel in Car Bedworth - Petrol in Diesel Car Bedworth

Now I'm not ever so inclined to running Sundays, and a couple weeks ago was no different. I'd just come away from the family after a wonderful dinner prepared for me by the wife, and I was on the way to assist a fellow because he filled the incorrect petrol in his grass green Mercedes-Benz SL-Class. He was somewhere in Bedworth and so it wasn't long before I arrived with him. Just as I drove up at the car and got out he explained to me "Thank the Lord! I had my attention on stuff and did not perceive I had put diesel in my petrol vehicle. Have I caused some damage by driving it?" I explained generally there shouldn't be harm and that I'd remove the contaminated fuel as soon as possible for him. Obviously I drained the fuel from the vehicle and filled it with some suitable fuel, and thus yet another contented client was able to continue their journey without any subsequent fuss. He could not stop saying thanks to me, and that is exactly what helps make carrying out work on Sundays in Warwickshire that little bit less painful to me!

A customer who had unfortunately put the wrong fuel in his diesel mum's Mitsubishi Chariot phoned us for a fuel drain at the BP filling station in Bedworth. He decided to top up before continuing on to the local caravan park but had put the wrong fuel in his car. "I put unleaded rather than diesel which unfortunately wasn't a good start to our holiday break." It was no problem at all for our technician to go along and do the fuel drain. We hope everyone had a good vacation.

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.
