It was close to five pm on a Friday and even though we were assured a rainless evening, it had not given up on raining! Ryan and I were resting going over the tennis rankings, waiting around for the next call that day to come in. In due time we got the call from a young lady on a company trip who had gone to the Shell filling station in Gannow Green and filled the wrong fuel in a diesel mint green Honda CR-V hire car. The unfortunate thing was quite agitated apparently, crying "I simply cannot believe that I have ruined the vehicle! I am just so familiar with filling up my petrol car I had didn't remember I was operating a diesel!" I asked her to take it easy and not to fret, and also that things like this regrettably can happen. She was able to maneuver the vehicle into a secure area and, seeing as it was just a few minutes from our van, we could find the woman rather quickly. The contaminated fuel was cleaned up and removed so she could go home to the Travelodge she was lodging at. Despite the fact that we got extremely wet, it was all worthwhile to watch her drive off satisfied and a lot less worried. Another misfuel correction in Birmingham well done in my mind!

Just had a fantastic night's sleep! It was 7:30 on a gloomy Saturday and I was en route to assist an older sweetheart after she put the wrong fuel in her diesel light blue Toyota Land Cruiser in Gannow Green. She informed us that she had left the filling station forecourt and was pulled up along a backwater road on the way to see her godchildren. I got the location plugged in the Satnav and got there within 60 minutes. I arrived at the stricken lady and extracted the wrong fuel in the car car. While I was doing the drain she told me, "I am getting somewhat forgetful in my senior years and did not remember about the vehicle using diesel because I'd only just bought it a week back after my former one, which I'd used for in excess of 25 years, inevitably gave up the ghost". I completed the job and she gave me a peppermint and thanked me for my work. Such a delightful Birmingham lady!

A guy had stopped just near a street in Gannow Green. His well worn Renault Espace car had stopped functioning and he had no clue what was awry until eventually he realised he put the wrong fuel in his diesel car. He phoned us to get a fuel drain and that is when he told us: "I can not believe that I did not know that I had put the incorrect fuel in my car." He said that he had got very little rest the evening before and that must have been why.

This really was the graveyard shift. It was around 3 in the morning and nobody was stirring. It was quite uneventful up to now, and Mark and I were loafing about looking at a few old papers. That was an unusual quiet hour in Birmingham. Actually it was indeed so tranquil that when the telephone rang I leaped with surprise! The motorist explained: "I have concluded my evening shift and foolishly poured the wrong fuel in my filthy MINI Cooper Countryman". We instructed him to let us know where the vehicle was located and we headed out, arriving in Gannow Green no more than an hour or so later. The contaminated fuel was cleared from the engine. He said thanks for arriving so quickly. While we were heading back to the depot we noticed two young women at the edge of the street who seemed to have a puncture. Accordingly we got out to help them 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.
