The 3 things you MUST know about a Misfuel!

Wrong Fuel in Car Dartmouth - Dartmouth Misfuelling

Just had a quality night of sleep! It was 7:00 in the morning on a rainy Saturday and I was on my way to help an older sweetheart who put the wrong fuel in her diesel faithful BMW 5 Series in Dartmouth. I'd been informed she had driven away from the filling station forecourt and pulled up in a backwater lane on route to visit her grandchildren. I punched her location straight into the TomTom and got there in less than an hour. I got to the vehicle and drained the wrong fuel out of the vehicle. As I was doing it she said, "I have been getting quite absent-minded in my old age and didn't remember about the car taking diesel because I'd only got it several days ago after my other one, which I used for over 30 years, inevitably broke down". I got the drain completed and she gifted me a toffee and said thank you. What a pleasant Devon lady!

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.
