It was after 5 pm on a Thursday and while we were guaranteed a dry and fresh evening, it hadn't stopped raining! Mark and me were sitting talking over the weekend's sports results, at the ready for the next call for the day to come in. Before long we got the call from a lovely woman on a company excursion who had gone to the BP petrol station in Downham Market and filled the wrong fuel in her diesel scruffy Honda CR-V rental by mistake. She was rather distressed by the sounds of it, saying "I cannot believe I've messed up the vehicle! I'm so used to filling my petrol car I had forgot I was driving a diesel!" I just asked her to relax and not to worry, and that such things regrettably can happen. She had managed to relocate the car into a protected space and, because it was only a few minutes away from us, we could reach the customer right away. The contaminated fuel was taken out and she could once again go back to the Premier Inn she was living in.

Just had a fantastic night of uninterrupted sleep! 7:00 on a sunny Sunday and we were on my way to help an old woman after she put petrol in her diesel well-used Volkswagen Scirocco in Downham Market. I'd been advised she had left the petrol station forecourt and broken down in a rural road on the way to pay a visit to her family. I got the location punched straight into the TomTom and arrived inside an hour. I got to the stricken lady and extracted the contaminated fuel from the vehicle. Whilst I was doing it she said to me, "Now I'm becoming relatively absent-minded in my senior years and did not remember about the car working with diesel because I'd only purchased it several days back right after my other car, which I had had for in excess of 30 years, finally died". I got the drain completed and she presented me a Murray mint and said thank you. What a lovely Norfolk woman!

I enjoyed a great day golfing during my off day and was feeling satisfied the following morning as I was on the way to aid a new couple who were on vacation in Downham Market. They had conked out after filling diesel in their bright yellow Ford, and were roughly half an hour away. I arrived at their location and smirked to myself as I heard to the woman telling off her spouse for being so stupid. "Precisely how could you even find a way to put the wrong fuel in the vehicle?" she said to him. I tried to explain that this problem occurs constantly in Norfolk and that it is absolutely nothing to get worried about, but he all the same had an earful. Unfortunate guy. In any case, I drained all the wrong fuel, gave the engine a flush and gave it some proper fuel. As they drove away I waved goodbye and wondered what her indoors would ask me if perhaps I did the exact same thing... I'd under no circumstances live it down!

Wrong Fuel in Car Downham Market - Petrol in Diesel Car Downham Market

Now I'm not actually excessively inclined to doing work weekends, and last week was the same. I had only just departed home after eating a lovely lunch prepared by the missus, and I was en route to help a fellow who had put the wrong fuel in his beloved BMW 5 Series. He was only in Downham Market and so I was with him rapidly. As I drove up at the rear of the vehicle and got busy draining he explained to me "Praise the Lord! I incredibly had my concentration on something else and failed to ascertain I've put diesel in my petrol car. Is it likely I caused some damage by simply running it?" I revealed that there should not be any kind of problems and that also I'd personally get the fuel drained quickly for him. As expected I removed the fuel from the car and filled up with some correct fuel, and then another pleased motorist had the ability to continue their journey without any difficulty. The gentleman did not stop saying thanks to me, and that tends to make working on weekends in Norfolk that little bit better for me personally!

This was certainly what we call the night shift. It was close to dawn and noone was stirring. It had been quite uneventful up to now, and me and Ryan were relaxing reading through several old articles. That was an uncommon tranquil time in Norfolk. It was in fact so relaxing that the instant the telephone rang it made me start! The person on the other end explained: "I've just completed my night shift and foolishly put the wrong fuel in my diesel red Mitsubishi Outlander by mistake". We instructed him to tell us where the car was and we headed out, arriving in Downham Market only an hour or so later. The wrong fuel was taken out from the motor and he said thanks for coming so quickly. While we were returning to the office we spotted two young ladies at the edge of the highway who looked like they suffered a flat. Accordingly we pulled over to change it, to their elation.

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.
