Wrong Fuel in Car Cockermouth - Cockermouth Misfuelling

What a fantastic night's sleep! 7:00 on a bright Saturday and we were on the way to help an older lady after she had put petrol in her diesel baby blue Ford Focus ST in Cockermouth. She informed us that she had driven away from the petrol station and broken down along a rural road on route to see her family. I got the location punched in the TomTom and arrived in less than 60 minutes. I arrived at the destination and extracted the contaminated fuel out of the car. As I was doing it she explained, "I'm becoming relatively forgetful in my senior years and forgot about the car needing diesel seeing that I had just acquired it a few days ago because my former one, which I'd had for about twenty five years, eventually died on me". I got the job done and she offered me a Murray mint and thanked me for my hard work. Such a delightful Cumbria woman!

Wrong Fuel Assist Cockermouth - Wrong Fuel in Car Cockermouth

I'd had a great afternoon golfing during the weekend and was feeling contented with myself the following day as I set out to help a new couple on vacation in Cockermouth. They'd pulled over after adding petrol in their cream Suzuki Reno, and were roughly half an hour away. I showed up at their position and laughed to myself while I heard to the girl telling off her spouse for actually being so stupid. "Just how could you conceivably be able to fill the car up using the wrong fuel?" she asked him. I tried to clarify that this problem takes place all the time in Cumbria and that it's nothing at all to worry about, even so he in spite of everything had an ear bashing. Unlucky chap. Anyhow, I drained out the contaminated fuel, gave the engine a flush and gave it some correct fuel. While watching them drive away I waved good-bye and considered what my wife would ask me if ever I did the exact same thing... I would personally never ever hear the end of it!

We not long ago got a phone call about a motorist who had put the wrong fuel in his well-used Cadillac CTS in Cockermouth. He had come to a stand-still on the street. "I couldn't believe how speedy you were in having somebody out to assist me when I mistakenly petrol in my diesel. Thank you so much".

Wrong Fuel Doctor Cockermouth - Fuel Rescue Cockermouth

A driver from Cockermouth with a full car of children in her diesel customised MINI Cooper Clubman had put £30 of petrol at the Co Op service station. She contacted us weeping and extremely worried as she had never filled up with the wrong fuel previously and did not know what would happen to her car . We assured her that all would be fine and that she would be back in action quickly. When we arrived she was visible distressed but as our fuel drainer got to work on the fuel drain she calmed down as she saw that something could be done and her car wasn't unfixable. She soon cheered up and was on the road again saying, "I can't believe my bad luck putting the wrong fuel in my vehicle! Specifically with the little ones in the back."

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.
