Wrong Fuel in Car Bideford - Bideford Misfuelling

Ahhh, that was a great night of uninterrupted sleep! 7:30 on a sunny Bank Holiday Monday and we were on my way to help an elder sweetheart after she put the wrong fuel in her diesel compact Kia Sorento in Bideford. I had been informed she drove away from the petrol station and stranded on a rural road on route to visit her grandchildren. I got her location punched into the Satnav and was on-scene within an hour or so. I got to the stricken lady and drained the wrong fuel in the car vehicle. Whilst I was doing the work she told me, "Now I'm becoming quite absent-minded in my senior years and didn't remember about the car using diesel because I had only bought it a few days back after my previous one, which I had for about 30 years, eventually gave up the ghost". I got the drain done and she gifted me a peppermint and said thanks a lot. What a precious Devon woman!

Wrong Fuel in Car Bideford - Petrol in Diesel Car Bideford

I am not overly interested in doing work Sundays, and a week ago was the same. I'd only just departed the wife and kids following a fantastic lunch made for me by the wife, and I was en route to help a gentleman who filled the wrong fuel in his silver Volvo C70. He was somewhere in Bideford hence it wouldn't be long before I reached him. As I drove up behind the car and started work he told me "Thank God! I had my concentration on other stuff and didn't ascertain I've put the wrong fuel in my petrol car. I need to know if I brought about damage through running it?" I determined generally there probably should not be any harm and also I'd drain the wrong fuel quickly. As expected I removed the fuel from the car and filled up with some correct fuel, and then another delighted motorist was able to continue their trip without the need for bother. He could hardly stop saying thanks to me, and that is what tends to make operating on Sundays in Devon just a tiny bit better in my opinion!

Wrong Fuel Doctor Bideford - Fuel Rescue Bideford

A motorist driving in Bideford called us as soon as she had tried to get her misfueled automobile to the office. She had put petrol in her diesel pristine BMW Z3 and, like countless before her, assumed that she would be able to just fill the tank with diesel and it would be alright. The engine was chugging and then it cut out when she arrived at the the front of her work. We soon started on the fuel drain after she called and had it repaired in an hour or so while she was working. She came outside afterwards and thanked us stating, "I'm extremely glad you fixed my vehicle."

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.
