We a few weeks ago received a phone call about a motorist who put the incorrect fuel in his silver Peugeot 505 in Clitheroe. He had conked out on the street. "After putting petrol in my diesel car I didn't realize the predicament till we stopped working. You took the wrong fuel from my car and got it functioning . I was impressed due to both your call-out time and your value for money". Naturally we arrived promptly and flushed the engine after draining the petrol from the diesel tank.

A customer from Clitheroe with a full car of kids in her diesel winter grey Audi 4000CS Quattro had put £42 of petrol at the BP filling station. She contacted us weeping and genuinely worried as she had never wrong fuelled and did not know what might happen to her vehicle because of it. We told her that the vehicle would be okay and that she would be back ready to go soon. When we arrived on scene she was visible upset but as our technician began work on the fuel drain she simmered down since she saw that something could be done and her car wasn't wrecked. She soon enough brightened up and was on her way saying, "I can't believe my luck putting the wrong fuel in my vehicle! Especially with the little ones on board."

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.
