Wrong Fuel in Car Hailsham - Hailsham Misfuelling

Ahhh, that was a quality night's uninterrupted sleep! It was 7:00 on a gloomy Saturday and we were off to help an older lady who had put petrol in her diesel abused Toyota Land Cruiser in Hailsham. I had been advised she had driven away from the petrol station forecourt and was pulled up along a rural lane along the way to visit her family. I got her location punched into the TomTom and was with her inside 60 minutes. I got to the vehicle and removed the wrong fuel in the car vehicle. Whilst I was doing it she explained, "I'm getting somewhat absent-minded in my old age and did not remember about the car working with diesel as I'd only just bought it a few days ago after my former one, which I'd had for more than thirty years, eventually stopped working". I finished the drain and she gifted me a toffee and thanked me for my work. What a delightful East Sussex woman!

We performed a wrong fuel retrieval exercise outside a beautiful residential home in Hailsham a few weeks ago. "I had put unleaded in my diesel car and managed to very nearly arrive at home when my car quit." Our fuel drainer went out, regardless that it was pretty late at night, and carried out a fuel drain and cleanse on the black Nissan to everyone's satisfaction.

This was exactly what we call the night shift. It was close to sunrise and hardly anyone was about. It was fairly uneventful up to now, and me and Ray were sitting looking at a few old papers. That was an uncommon calm time in East Sussex. Actually it was that relaxing that the moment the telephone inevitably rang it made me start! The customer on the phone explained: "I've completed my overnight shift and stupidly poured petrol in the new-shape Volvo V90 in error". We asked him to inform us where exactly the car was located and we set off, arriving in Hailsham under an hour or so later. The incorrect fuel was extracted from the car. He thanked us profusely for getting there so rapidly. As we were heading back home we saw two women on the edge of the road who seemed to have a puncture. Obviously we got out and helped them change it, much 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.
