Wrong Fuel Assist Bristol - Wrong Fuel in Car Bristol

I enjoyed a fantastic evening cycling on my holiday and felt pleased with myself the following morning as I was on the way to assist a new couple holidaying in Bristol. They'd broken down after filling the wrong fuel in their immaculate Mercedes E-Class, and the car was about half an hour's travel away. I showed up at their car and smiled while I listened to the lady telling her man off for being so silly. "Just how could you even manage to fill up with the wrong fuel?" she demanded of him. I attempted to explain that this kind of thing takes place constantly in Bristol and that it's truly nothing to fret about, even so he still had an earful by his wife. Unlucky lad. Anyways, I drained out all of the contaminated fuel, gave the fuel system a flush and filled them up with the appropriate fuel. Watching them drive down the road I mouthed good-bye and wondered what my wife would ask me in the event that I did the very same thing... I'd never live it down!

Wrong Fuel in Car Bristol - Petrol in Diesel Car Bristol

A young person who had recently passed his driving test had misfueled his winter grey Renault Modus by having petrol in his diesel at the service station in Bristol. He said, "This is only the third time I have put fuel in my car since I bought it and I don't know what to do." He was also afraid because his father had just recently paid for the car. He came across our company on the net and so called it right away, scared about what he should do. Our person on the telephones advised him that we could be there in forty five minutes and to not start his vehicle while he waited.

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.
