It was close to ten pm on a Wednesday and even though we were assured a dry and fresh evening, it hadn't ceased raining! Brian and I were sitting talking about the weekend's football rankings, ready for the seventh call of the day to come in. Eventually we had a phone call from a girl on a company trip who had arrived at the Shell filling station in Gravesend and put the wrong fuel in her diesel sombre grey Mitsubishi Challenger hire car by mistake. She was somewhat agitated apparently, stating "I just can't believe I've wrecked the car! I'm so familiar with filling up my petrol car that I completely didn't remember that I was using a diesel!" I just instructed her to relax and not to fret, and that things like this happen. She had managed to get the car to a secure spot and, seeing as it was just a short distance away from the office, we could get to the lady right away. The incorrect fuel was drained and she was able to get back to the motel she was lodging at.

Wrong Fuel in Car Gravesend - Petrol in Diesel Car Gravesend

We a few weeks ago got a call from a driver who had put the incorrect fuel in his stylish Honda Ridgeline in Gravesend. He had ground to a halt on the road. "I couldn't believe how fast you were in sending somebody out to aid me after I mistakenly unleaded in my diesel car. Thank you so much". It goes without saying that we got there punctually and purged the engine after draining all the unleaded from the diesel tank. On arrival our engineer said the motorist was raging, but was pleased after the fuel drain.

This was most definitely what we call an unsociable hour to be on the road. It was about 2:30am and noone was around. It had been rather dead thus far, and Paul and I were loafing reading a couple of old magazines. It was a rare peaceful hour in Kent. Actually it was indeed so relaxing that the moment the phone inevitably rang it made me jump! The voice stated: "I have just finished my evening shift and foolishly put the wrong fuel in my diesel dilapidated Audi A7 by mistake". We asked him to let us know exactly where he was situated and we hit the road, arriving in Gravesend not as much as an hour or so later. The contaminated fuel was taken out from the vehicle and he thanked us for showing up so promptly. While we were returning home we spotted two women on the side of the highway who seemed like they suffered a puncture. Obviously we stopped to change it, to their delight.

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.
