Wrong Fuel in Car Blackpool - Petrol in Diesel Car Blackpool

I am not so hot for working on weekends, and a week ago was no different. I'd only just come away from the wife and kids after having a wonderful lunch made for us by the wife, and I was on my way to help a fellow after he had put the wrong petrol in his teal Hyundai Santa Fe. He was somewhere in Blackpool so I was on scene quickly. Just as I drove up behind the vehicle and started work he said to me "Praise the Lord! I foolishly had my mind on other considerations and didn't realise I have put the wrong fuel in my petrol vehicle. I need to know if I brought on any kind of damage simply by driving it?" I explained that generally there shouldn't be any problems and that also I'd get the contaminated fuel drained as soon as possible. Naturally I removed the wrong fuel from the vehicle and put in some suitable fuel, and then another contented motorist had the ability to carry on with his journey without any hassle. The gentleman could not stop saying thanks to me, and that is exactly what tends to make earning a living on weekends in Lancashire just a small bit better for me personally!

Wrong Fuel Doctor Blackpool - Fuel Rescue Blackpool

A driver from Blackpool with a full car of youngsters in her diesel aunt's Cadillac Allante had filled her vehicle with £42 of petrol at the Tesco station. She phoned us sobbing and extremely distraught as she had never put petrol in a diesel car before and did not know what would happen to her car in doing so. We reassured her that everything should be okay and that she would be back on the road very quickly. When we arrived she was still upset but as our technician began work on the fuel drain she calmed down as she saw that something could be done and her vehicle wasn't wrecked. She quickly brightened up and was on her way saying, "I can't believe my misfortune putting petrol in my diesel car! Specifically with the children in the back."

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.
