The 3 things you MUST know about fuel contamination!

Wrong Fuel in Car Carterton - Carterton Misfuelling

Ahhh, that was a quality night's sleep! 7:00 on a bright Monday and I was en route to help an elder lovely lady after she put petrol in her diesel mint green Seat Altea in Carterton. She told us that she had left the petrol station and pulled up on a backwater road along the way to see her grandchildren. I popped the location straight into the TomTom and arrived inside an hour or so. I got to the location and extracted the wrong fuel in the car vehicle. Whilst I was working she said to me, "I'm getting fairly forgetful in my senior years and did not remember about the vehicle using diesel since I'd only just got it several days ago after my previous one, which I'd had for over twenty five years, eventually died on me". I completed the drain and she offered me a peppermint and said thank you. Such a pleasant Oxfordshire woman!

I had a wonderful day fishing on the weekend and felt pleased the next morning as I set out to help a young family who were on holiday in Carterton. They'd broken down after filling diesel in their clean Lexus LFA, and they were around half an hour away. I got there at their location and laughed to myself while I listened to the girl berating her partner for turning out to be so stupid. "Just how could you actually find a way to fill up with the wrong fuel?" she said to him. I tried to clarify that this problem comes to pass on daily basis in Oxfordshire and that it is absolutely nothing to worry about, nonetheless he yet still got an ear bashing. Poor boy. Anyways, I drained out all of the contaminated fuel, gave the fuel system a flush and filled it up with the right fuel. Watching them drive away I shouted good bye and considered what my missus would tell me if I did the very same thing... I would personally never ever hear the end of it!

We not long ago received a phone call from a motorist who put the incorrect fuel in his clean white Volkswagen Fox in Carterton. He had broken down on the road. "After inserting unleaded in my diesel car I didn't recognise the problem before I ground to a halt. You took the wrong fuel from my car and got it running once again. I was amazed by both your call-out time and your prices". Of course we arrived on the scene promptly and purged the engine after flushing the unleaded from the diesel tank. When he arrived our technician said the customer was raging, but was pretty happy afterwards.

He had decided to fill up before proceeding on to the nearby recreation park but had put the wrong fuel in his car. "I put petrol rather than diesel which probably wasn't a wonderful way to start to our holiday break." It was no challenge in any way for our fuel drainer to go and perform the fuel drain.

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.
