The 3 things you SHOULD know about Wrong Fuel!

Wrong Fuel in Car Brixham - Brixham Misfuelling

What a quality night's sleep! 7:30 am on a sunny Sunday and we were en route to help an old woman after she put the wrong fuel in her diesel aunt's Peugeot 107 in Brixham. She told us that she had left the filling station forecourt and was stranded in a rural lane on route to visit her grandchildren. I got her location plugged into the Satnav and was on-scene within an hour. I got to the car and drained the contaminated fuel from the car. While I was doing the work she explained, "I'm becoming rather absent-minded in my senior years and forgot about the vehicle using diesel since I'd only just purchased it a short while ago after my old one, which I had used for more than thirty years, inevitably stopped working". I completed the drain and she gifted me a Murray mint and said thank you. Such a delightful Devon lady!

We did a wrong fuel removal exercise outside a spectacular residence in Brixham a few weeks ago. "I put petrol in my diesel car and was able to almost reach home when my car stopped."

Wrong Fuel Doctor Brixham - Fuel Rescue Brixham

A lady driving in Brixham called us shortly after she had tried to get her misfueled car to her office. She had filled petrol in her diesel green Peugeot 405 and, like many prior to her, thought that she could basically top up her vehicle with diesel and it'd run no problem. The engine was spluttering and then it stopped when she arrived at the entrance of her office. We immediately started on the fuel drain after she called and got it repaired within 60 minutes while she was working. She came outside soon after and thanked us saying, "I'm extremely delighted you sorted my car."

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.
