It was just before six pm on a Thursday and while we were assured a dry afternoon, it had not stopped raining! Paul and me were seated talking about the recent tennis rankings, waiting for the 8th telephone call to arrive. Finally we received the call from a lovely woman on a business expedition who had pulled into the Esso filling garage in Four Oaks and put the wrong fuel in a diesel sombre grey Kia Soul rental car by mistake. She was quite distressed by the sounds of it, crying "I can't believe that I have ruined the vehicle! I'm so accustomed to putting petrol in my petrol vehicle I completely didn't remember that I was running a diesel!" We advised her to settle back and not to be concerned, plus that such things unfortunately often happen. She had managed to move the vehicle into a secure position and, since it was only a few minutes from us, we could arrive at the lady rather quickly. The bad fuel was extracted and she could return to the hotel she was residing at. Despite the fact that we got extremely drenched, it was all worthwhile to see her drive home relaxed and not so apprehensive. Another job in Birmingham well done in my mind!

I had appreciated a wonderful afternoon fishing during my holiday and felt contented the next morning as I set out to help a young couple on vacation in Four Oaks. They had pulled over after inserting the wrong fuel in their raspberry red Mitsubishi 3000GT, and they were roughly half an hour away. I arrived at their car and laughed while I listened to the wife berating her hubby for actually being so foolish. "How could you conceivably be able to fill the vehicle up with the wrong fuel?" she said to him. I tried to clarify that this kind of thing occurs everyday in Birmingham and that it's really nothing to fret about, and yet he all the same had an earful by his better half. Poor guy. Anyways, I cleaned up and removed all of the wrong fuel, gave the fuel system a flush and filled it up with the proper fuel. While they drove down the road I shouted goodbye and pondered on what my missus would tell me in the event that I did the very same thing... I would never ever hear the end of it!

A young lady from Four Oaks with a full car of youngsters in her diesel white BMW 650 had filled her vehicle with £40 of petrol at the Co Op petrol station. She phoned us sobbing and genuinely worried as she had never put petrol in a diesel car before and did not know what would happen to her car because of it. We reassured her that all would be ok and that she would be in action in no time at all. When we got there she was visible distressed but as our engineer began work on the fuel drain she simmered down since she recognised that something could be done and her car wasn't wrecked. She quickly cheered up and was on the road again saying, "I really can't believe my luck putting the wrong fuel in my car! Specifically with the little ones on board."

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.
