Wrong Fuel in Car Haigh - Haigh Misfuelling

Ahhh, that was a good night of uninterrupted sleep! 7:00 on a rainy Sunday and we were en route to help an old sweetheart who put the wrong fuel in her diesel dilapidated BMW in Haigh. She informed us that she had left the filling station forecourt and was stranded along a rural road along the way to visit her grandchildren. I popped her location into the TomTom and was with her within 60 minutes. I got to the destination and removed the contaminated fuel out of the vehicle. As I was doing the work she explained, "Now I'm getting rather forgetful in my old age and didn't remember about the car using diesel since I'd only purchased it a week ago because my other one, which I had owned for about 25 years, eventually died". I completed the job and she gifted me a toffee and thanked me for my hard work. What a precious Greater Manchester lady!

We fairly recently had a call from a man who had put the incorrect fuel in his modern Nissan Cube in Haigh. He had broken down on the road.

I was happy with both how fast you were and your prices". As you can imagine we arrived punctually and flushed the engine after draining all of the contaminated fuel from the diesel tank.

This was an unsociable time to be up. It was around 2am and almost noone was stirring. It was pretty dead up to now, and Paul and I were loafing looking at some old newspapers. This was an uncommon quiet hour in Greater Manchester. It was in fact so tranquil that when the telephone rang it made me start! The person told me: "I just completed my night shift and stupidly poured petrol in a diesel silver Citron Picasso in error". We got him to let us know just where the car was situated and we hit the road, getting to him in Haigh no more than half an hour later. The contaminated fuel was extracted from the engine and he thanked us for coming out so quickly. While we were going back to base we spotted two women on the side of the highway who looked like they suffered a flat. Obviously we stopped to help them change it, 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.
