It was around six pm on a Thursday and despite the fact that we were guaranteed a dry day, it hadn't stopped raining! Dan and I were seated going over the footy rankings, ready for the seventh telephone call of the day to come in. Inevitably we received a call from a lovely woman on a company trip who had pulled into the BP filling station in Eccleshill and filled petrol in a diesel white Mazda Navajo hire car in error. The poor thing was somewhat agitated apparently, saying "I cannot believe that I have messed up the car! I'm just so familiar with filling my petrol car that I completely didn't remember that I was driving a diesel!" We told her to take it easy and not to fret, plus that things like this unfortunately do happen. She managed to get the car to a protected spot and, as it was just a few minutes from the office, we were able to reach the lady right away. The contaminated fuel was drained and she could return to the motel she was staying in. Despite the fact that we got very soaked, it was all worth it seeing her drive home relaxed and a lot less anxious. One more job in West Yorkshire done well in my books!

A couple weeks ago a motorist called us soon after his mint green Vauxhall Signum died along a road in Eccleshill. He had mistakenly put unleaded in the diesel vehicle and got as far as the road before having to pull over. It was actually early in the day and our technician, who stays close by, arrived with him in approximately a quarter hour. We managed to drain the incorrect fuel and put clean diesel once again in to the car. "Many kudos to you for your immediate response, especially at 4 a.m., I am grateful for it."

It can't be nice conking out in a automobile filled with the wrong fuel on the street. Our last customer who put the wrong fuel in her car (filthy Jeep Grand Cherokee) in Eccleshill suffered precisely this kind of dilemma: "WrongFuelSOS.com's technician removed my vehicle from the live lane. He had it drained and had it working again inside of twenty-five minutes. Couldn't recommend you more."

It truly was an unsociable hour to be up. It was roughly 2:30am and noone was about. It had been pretty uneventful so far, and Brian and I were loafing around reading through a couple of old magazines. This was an uncommon quiet moment in West Yorkshire. It was indeed that tranquil that when the phone finally rang I leaped! The motorist explained: "I've only just ended my overnight shift and foolishly poured the wrong fuel in the diesel wife's Chevrolet Caprice". I told him to let us know just where the car was located and we set off, ending up in Eccleshill under an hour later. The wrong fuel was cleaned from the motor. He said thank you for getting there so fast. As we were going back home we noticed two young ladies on the edge of the highway who looked like they suffered a flat. So we pulled up to change it, much 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.
