Wrong Fuel in Car Braintree - Braintree Misfuelling

What a fantastic night's sleep! It was 7:30 on a rainy Sunday and we were on the way to assist an elder lady after she put petrol in her diesel scruffy BMW 530 in Braintree. She informed us that she had driven away from the filling station forecourt and stranded on a country road on the way to visit her family. I got the location plugged into the TomTom and arrived in less than an hour. I turned up at the location and removed the wrong fuel out of the car. While I was working she said, "I'm becoming somewhat absent-minded in my senior years and did not remember about the vehicle working with diesel seeing that I had just bought it a couple of days back after my other one, which I'd had for about twenty five years, eventually broke down". I got the drain completed and she presented me a Murray mint and said thanks a lot. What a precious Essex lady!

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.
