It was around 6 pm on a Thursday and even though we were assured a rainless day, it had not stopped pouring! Ryan and me were relaxing discussing the recent rugby rankings, ready for the 8th job of the day to come in. Inevitably we received the phone call from a lady on a business excursion who had gone to the Esso filling station in Crediton and put petrol in a diesel immaculate Volvo C30 lease car in error. She was very troubled it seemed, telling me "I just can't believe I've ruined the vehicle! I am so familiar with filling my petrol vehicle I completely forgot that I was driving a diesel!" I told her to take it easy and not to be concerned, also that such things regrettably can happen. She had managed to get the vehicle into a safe area and, because it was only a few miles off from our van, we could get to the lady rather quickly.

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.
