It was just after six pm on a Wednesday and while we were promised a rainless evening, it hadn't given up on pouring down rain! James and me were seated there commenting on the golf rankings, prepared for the 8th call for the day to come in. Eventually we had the call from a lovely woman on a business trip who had arrived at the Shell filling garage in Cirencester and put the wrong fuel in her diesel new-shape Mercedes CLS-Class rental in error. The poor thing was rather distressed by the sounds of it, saying "I can not believe I've ruined the vehicle! I am so accustomed to filling up my petrol car that I had did not remember I was driving a diesel!" I asked her to calm down and not to be concerned, and that things like this sadly can happen. She had managed to move the car into a protected spot and, since it was just a short distance from our van, we were able to arrive at her quickly. The contaminated fuel was extracted so she was able to get back to the Premier Inn she was living in. Despite the fact that we got very drenched, it was all worthwhile seeing her drive away satisfied and much less worried. A fuel drain in Gloucestershire done well in my books!

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.
