Wrong Fuel in Car Dover - Petrol in Diesel Car Dover

I am not necessarily too inclined to running weekends, and a couple weeks ago was the same. I had only just left the family after having a wonderful dinner made by the missus, and I was off to sort out a guy who had filled the wrong petrol in his husband's Audi Q5. He was located in Dover thus it wouldn't be a long time before I reached him. As I arrived right behind the car and got busy draining he explained to me "Praise God! I incredibly had my concentration on other considerations and failed to ascertain I'd put diesel in my petrol car. I need to know if I caused harm because of running it?" I determined generally there should not be any problems and also I'd personally drain the fuel as quickly as possible. Needless to say I got the contaminated fuel drained from the vehicle and filled it with some appropriate fuel, and then yet another delighted customer was able to continue their ride without the need for hassle. The gentleman could hardly stop saying thanks to me, and that helps make carrying out work on weekends in Kent just a little bit less painful to me!

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.
