Wrong Fuel in Car Chipping Sodbury - Petrol in Diesel Car Chipping Sodbury

I am certainly not excessively enthusiastic about doing the job weekends, and a week ago was the same. I had only just departed the wife and kids after a superb Sunday roast cooked for us by the better half, and I was en route to sort out a gentleman who had put the wrong petrol in his cyan Cadillac DTS. He was situated in Chipping Sodbury so it wouldn't be long before I got to him. Just as I arrived at the rear of the car and got busy draining he explained to me "Praise the Almighty! I stupidly had my thoughts on other stuff and did not grasp that I had put the wrong fuel in my petrol vehicle. I need to know if I inflicted harm by starting it?" I said there probably should not be any harm and also that I would drain the fuel at once for him. Needless to say I got the wrong fuel drained from the car and put in the suitable fuel, and then one more pleased customer could carry on with his journey without the bother. He did not stop saying thanks to me, and this is actually what makes earning a living on weekends in Gloucestershire just that little bit better for me personally!

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.
