This was an unsociable time to be awake. It was roughly 3am and nobody was about. It had become pretty quiet until now, and me and John were sitting about reading through several old articles. That was a rare calm hour in Hampshire. Actually it was in fact so tranquil that when the phone eventually rang I jumped! The motorist stated: "I just finished my night shift and foolishly filled petrol in the time-worn Daewoo Lanos in error". I instructed him to let us know where the car was and we headed out, ending up in Emsworth only 30 minutes later. The contaminated fuel was taken out from the motor. He thanked us for arriving so promptly. While we were going back home we saw two girls at the edge of the highway who seemed to have a puncture. Accordingly we got out 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.
