Wrong Fuel in Car Buckfastleigh - Buckfastleigh Misfuelling

What a great night's uninterrupted sleep! 7:30 in the morning on a sunny Wednesday and I was on my way to help an old woman who had put petrol in her diesel cream Peugeot 407 in Buckfastleigh. She informed us that she had left the petrol station forecourt and pulled up along a country road on route to visit her godchildren. I got the location plugged straight into the TomTom and was with her in less than an hour. I turned up at the vehicle and drained the contaminated fuel in the car car. Whilst I was doing the work she told me, "I'm getting relatively absent-minded in my old age and forgot about the vehicle needing diesel seeing that I had only bought it a few days back because my previous one, which I had for more than twenty years, finally died". I got the job completed and she presented me a Murray mint and thanked me for my hard work. What a pleasant Devon woman!

We a few weeks ago got a call about a guy who had put the wrong fuel in his modern Lexus LX in Buckfastleigh. He had come to a stand-still on the street. "After adding petrol in my diesel car I didn't discover the problem until we conked out. You cleared the wrong fuel from my car and had it running once again. I was impressed because of both how quick you were and your charges". Naturally we arrived rapidly and flushed the engine after flushing all of the unleaded from the diesel tank.

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.
