Wrong Fuel Assist Castleford - Wrong Fuel in Car Castleford

I'd had a wonderful day cycling on my afternoon off and felt satisfied with myself the following morning as I set off to assist a new couple vacationing in Castleford. They broken down after putting petrol in their bright white Mercedes SLK-Class, and were close to half an hour's drive away. I emerged at their location and laughed to myself as I listened to the wife telling her husband off for actually being so confused. "Just how could you conceivably be able to fill the car up using the wrong fuel?" she told him. I attempted to explain that this comes to pass frequently in West Yorkshire and that it is nothing at all to be concerned about, but he in spite of everything got an ear bashing. Poor boy. At any rate, I extracted all of the polluted fuel, flushed the fuel system and filled them up with the proper fuel. While watching them drive away I mouthed so long and wondered what her indoors would ask me if perhaps I did the very same thing... I would never ever hear the end of it!

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.
