Wrong Fuel Assist Faringdon - Wrong Fuel in Car Faringdon

I had enjoyed a fantastic evening cycling on my holiday and was feeling delighted with myself the next day as I set off to assist a new family on vacation in Faringdon. They'd conked out after inserting petrol into their burgundy red Jeep Wrangler, and were approximately half an hour away. I arrived at their position and smirked while I listened to the gal berating her husband for actually being so daft. "How could you possibly be able to put the wrong fuel in the car?" she told him. I wanted to clarify that this happens continuously in Oxfordshire and that it is nothing at all to be concerned about, and yet he yet still had an earful. I felt sorry for the guy. Anyway, I cleaned up and removed the wrong fuel, flushed the fuel system and gave it some appropriate fuel. As they drove away I shouted bon voyage and wondered what her indoors would say to me if perhaps I did the very same thing... I would under no circumstances hear the end of it!

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.
