Wrong Fuel in Car Billingham - Billingham Misfuelling

A lady had come to a halt on a street, Billingham having just wrong fuelled. She was crying and fairly agitated as she had put £60 petrol in her diesel car. When she phoned us we tried to relax her as well as we could, telling her that it would be fine. When we got to her she was no longer troubled and was very fascinated in observing our fuel drainer perform the fuel drain on her abused Jaguar XJ. Later on she said: "My car is akin to my child, I only recently purchased it and so it genuinely concerned me that I had put such a large amount of wrong fuel in it. I'm really gratified that it was so very easily fixable."

I enjoyed a terrific afternoon fishing during my day off and was feeling cheerful with myself the next working day as I headed out to help a young couple on vacation in Billingham. They'd conked out after filling petrol in their dilapidated Audi riolet, and were close to half an hour's drive away. I emerged at their position and laughed while I heard to the lady telling her spouse off for turning out to be so daft. "How could you actually manage to fill the vehicle up with the wrong fuel?" she said to him. I wanted to explain that this happens everyday in Durham and that it's nothing at all to get worried about, however he all the same got an ear bashing. I felt sorry for the chap. Anyhow, I removed the contaminated fuel, gave the fuel system a flush and filled it up with the appropriate fuel. Watching them drive down the road I waved farewell and wondered what her indoors would tell me if ever I made the exact same error... I'd personally never hear the end of it!

Tales from our Billingham staff:

Wrong Fuel in Car Billingham - Petrol in Diesel Car Billingham

We were phoned by a man whose son's Fiat Punto had ground to a halt on a street because he put the wrong fuel in it. "I mixed up the pumps and pumped petrol instead of diesel in my car . These guys arrived and sorted out the matter after my car stopped." We purged the wrong fuel from the diesel tank and flushed the fuel lines meticulously and the driver could carry on with his deliveries.

This was most definitely what we call the graveyard shift. It was close to sunrise and hardly anyone was about. It was quite uneventful until now, and Mark and I were loafing about looking through a few old magazines. That was a rare calm hour in Durham. Actually it was that quiet that when the telephone eventually rang I leaped with surprise! The customer on the phone stated: "I only just concluded my evening shift and stupidly put the wrong fuel in the green Fiat Uno by mistake". I instructed him to inform us where exactly the vehicle was located and we hit the road, arriving in Billingham not as much as half an hour later. The contaminated fuel was extracted from the engine. He said thanks a lot for showing up so rapidly. As we were heading back to base we spotted two ladies on the side of the highway 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.
