I appreciated a great day fishing during my holiday and felt pleased the following working day as I was on the way to aid a new family who were on vacation in Dewsbury. They'd pulled over after inserting diesel into their green Mitsubishi Precis, and were about an hour's drive away. I emerged at their car and smiled while I listened to the wife telling her spouse off for turning out to be so foolish. "Just how could you even manage to fill the car up by using the wrong fuel?" she said to him. I tried to tell her that this occurs frequently in West Yorkshire and that it's nothing at all to worry about, nevertheless he all the same had his ear bent by his missus. Unfortunate lad. At any rate, I removed the polluted fuel, gave the engine a flush and filled it up with the proper fuel.

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.
