Now I'm certainly not so keen on working Sundays, and 2 weeks ago was no different. I'd only just left home after a fantastic Sunday roast cooked for me by the better half, and I was on my way to help a guy after he had filled the incorrect fuel in his beautiful Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class. He was located in Great Torrington and so I was with him soon. As I drove up at the car and got out he explained to me "Praise the Almighty! I stupidly had my thoughts on something else and failed to realise I've put diesel in my petrol vehicle. I need to know if I brought about any kind of harm simply by driving it?" I revealed there shouldn't be damage and also I'd personally drain the wrong fuel at once for him. As expected I got the wrong fuel drained from the car and put in some correct fuel, and so another satisfied customer could continue on his journey without fuss. The guy did not stop thanking me, and that is what tends to make carrying out work on Sundays in Devon just that tiny bit less painful in my opinion!

    • 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.
