Wrong Fuel Assist Eastleigh - Wrong Fuel in Car Eastleigh

I had a fantastic afternoon hiking on my off day and felt cheerful the next morning as I was on the way to assist a new couple who were holidaying in Eastleigh. They'd pulled over after putting diesel into their filthy VW Golf, and were approximately an hour's drive away. I arrived at their position and smirked while I listened to the gal chastising her man for being so silly. "How could you possibly manage to fill up with the wrong fuel?" she told him. I attempted to explain that this goes on quite frequently in Hampshire and that it's truly absolutely nothing to get worried about, but he still got an earful. Unlucky boy. In any case, I extracted the wrong fuel, flushed the engine and filled them up with the appropriate fuel. Watching them drive off I shouted goodbye and pondered on what my missus would do to me if perhaps I did the very same thing... I'd under no circumstances live it down!

How to find out if I put the wrong fuel in my car?

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.
