It was just before 5 pm on a Saturday and although we were guaranteed a dry afternoon, it hadn't given up on pouring down rain! Mark and I were resting talking about the recent tennis results, at the ready for the 8th telephone call to come in. In due time we got the phone call from a woman on a business expedition who had arrived at the Shell filling garage in Berwick-upon-Tweed and put petrol in her diesel aunt's Austin Mini Cooper lease car. The poor thing was very distressed it seemed, saying "I can not believe that I've ruined the car! I'm just so familiar with filling up my petrol car that I had forgot that I was operating a diesel!" I instructed her to take it easy and not to worry, and also that things like this unfortunately often happen. She was able to maneuver the vehicle to a secure spot and, because it was just a short distance away from the office, we were able to reach the lady fairly quickly. The contaminated fuel was drained and she was able to get back to the Premier Inn she was staying at. Even though we got really wet, it was all worth it to watch her drive home relaxed and much less worried. A fuel drain in Northumberland well done in my mind!

Wrong Fuel in Car Berwick-upon-Tweed - Berwick-upon-Tweed Misfuelling

Just had a fantastic night of uninterrupted sleep! 7:30 on a rainy Tuesday and we were en route to help an elder woman after she put contaminated fuel in her diesel uncle's Nissan JUKE in Berwick-upon-Tweed. She informed us that she had left the petrol station and broken down in a country road along the way to see her godchildren. I got her location plugged straight into the Satnav and got there within 60 minutes. I arrived at the stricken lady and extracted the wrong fuel from the vehicle. As I was doing the work she said, "Now I'm getting quite absent-minded in my old age and did not remember about the car using diesel since I'd only just bought it a week back right after my previous car, which I had owned for about thirty years, inevitably gave up the ghost". I got the drain completed and she gifted me a toffee and thanked me for my work. Such a pleasant Northumberland woman!

Wrong Fuel in Car Berwick-upon-Tweed - Petrol in Diesel Car Berwick-upon-Tweed

It can't be nice breaking down in a car filled with the incorrect fuel on the road. Our most recent customer who filled her car with the wrong fuel (navy blue Volvo XC70) in Berwick-upon-Tweed ran into literally that type of trouble: "You may already know I mistakenly put the wrong fuel in my car a few days ago. I was so upset about it that I was in tears. But I shouldn't have worried simply because you were terrific in dealing with the problem."

This really was an unsociable hour to be on the road. It was close to 2:30am and almost noone was around. It had become quite uneventful so far, and Ray and I were loafing perusing some old papers. This was an uncommon peaceful hour in Northumberland. It was so quiet that the instant the telephone inevitably rang I jumped! The voice on the phone told me: "I've only just finished my night shift and foolishly poured the wrong fuel in a diesel bright yellow Lexus by mistake". I got him to let us know just where the vehicle was located and we set off, getting to him in Berwick-upon-Tweed only 30 minutes later. The fuel was cleaned from the engine. He thanked us for coming out so fast. While we were returning home we saw two young women at the edge of the road who seemed to have a flat tyre. Accordingly we stopped to change it, much to their elation.

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.
