I had enjoyed a great day hiking on my holiday and was feeling pleased the next day as I set off to assist a young couple who were away in Chester-le-Street. They conked out after putting diesel into their apple green Volvo C70, and the car was approximately half an hour away. I showed up at their car and smirked as I heard to the lady berating her hubby for being so silly. "Precisely how could you conceivably manage to fill up with the wrong fuel?" she asked him. I tried to tell her that this situation takes place constantly in Durham and that it's nothing to be anxious about, but he yet still had his ear bent by his missus. Unlucky lad. Anyway, I removed all of the wrong fuel, gave the motor a flush and filled it up with the correct fuel. Watching them drive away I shouted good bye and wondered what her indoors would do to me if ever I did the exact same thing... I'd personally 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.
