Wrong Fuel in Car Coleford - Coleford Misfuelling

Just had a great night's sleep! 7:00 on a rainy Sunday and we were on the way to assist an elder sweetheart who put petrol in her diesel buff Land Rover in Coleford. She told us that she had left the filling station and pulled up in a backwater lane along the way to see her grandchildren. I got the location punched in the Satnav and arrived within an hour. I reached the destination and removed the contaminated fuel from the car. As I was doing the work she explained, "I am getting fairly absent-minded in my old age and didn't remember about the vehicle using diesel seeing that I'd just bought it a couple of days ago after my former car, which I had used for about 30 years, eventually died". I completed the job and she offered me a toffee and thanked me for my work. Such a delightful Gloucestershire lady!

I enjoyed a fantastic afternoon fishing during my day off and felt pleased the next working day as I set out to help a young couple away in Coleford. They had stopped after filling petrol in their aunt's Jeep Comanche, and the car was roughly an hour away. I turned up at their car and smiled while I listened to the woman telling off her partner for being so confused. "Exactly how could you conceivably find a way to fill the car up by using the wrong fuel?" she asked him. I tried to tell her that this problem happens continuously in Gloucestershire and that it's nothing at all to get worried about, but he all the same had an earful. I felt sorry for the boy. Anyhow, I drained out all of the wrong fuel, flushed the fuel system and gave them some appropriate fuel. Watching while they drove down the road I waved good bye and considered what her indoors would tell me if perhaps I made the same blunder... I'd under no circumstances hear the end of it!

This was what we call the graveyard shift. It was close to sunrise and hardly anyone was about. It had been pretty uneventful until now, and Ryan and I were relaxing reading a number of old newspapers. This was an unusual calm time in Gloucestershire. It was so relaxing that the instant the telephone rang I leaped with surprise! The motorist explained: "I completed my night shift and foolishly put the wrong fuel in the rust red Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class in error". I asked him to let us know where exactly he was and we left, arriving in Coleford not as much as half an hour later. The fuel was removed from the motor and he thanked us for coming out so promptly. While we were returning to the depot we spotted two girls on the edge of the road who appeared to have a flat tyre. Obviously we stopped to help them change it, to their delight.

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.
