It was just after eight pm on a Thursday and although we were assured a dry afternoon, it hadn't stopped pouring down rain! Mark and me were resting there commenting on the golf results, waiting for the 8th call to arrive. Finally we had a phone call from a lady on a business trip who had arrived at the Shell petrol garage in Birkenhead and put petrol in a diesel spick and span Renault Megane rental car by mistake. She was fairly troubled it seemed, saying "I can't believe that I have ruined the vehicle! I am just so used to putting petrol in my petrol car that I totally didn't remember I was operating a diesel!" I advised her to calm down and not to fret, and that these things unfortunately do happen.

A woman from Birkenhead with a full car of youngsters in her diesel brand new Peugeot 207 had filled her vehicle with £40 of petrol at the BP petrol station. She called us sobbing and extremely upset as she had never put petrol in a diesel car previously and didn't know what could happen to her vehicle . We reassured her that all should be alright and that she would be back up and running very quickly. When we got there she was visible upset but while our engineer began work on the fuel drain she simmered down since she saw that something could be done and her car wasn't wrecked. She quickly brightened up and was on the road again saying, "I really can't believe my luck putting the wrong fuel in my vehicle! Particularly with the kids on board."

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.
