I'd had a wonderful afternoon hiking on my afternoon off and felt cheerful with myself the next morning as I was en route to help a young family on holiday in Falmouth. They broken down after filling diesel in their boss' Hyundai HED-5, and the car was roughly an hour away. I emerged at their car and laughed to myself while I heard to the gal telling her hubby off for being so stupid. "Precisely how could you conceivably manage to fill up with the wrong fuel?" she said to him. I attempted to tell her that this takes place continuously in Cornwall and that it is nothing to worry about, nonetheless he in spite of everything got his ear bent. Unlucky lad. Anyway, I cleaned up and removed the wrong fuel, gave the motor a flush and filled them up with the right fuel.

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.
