A guy had broken down near a street in Halifax. His spotless Mazda626 engine had stopped running and he'd no clue what was the problem till he noticed he had put unleaded in his diesel vehicle. He rang us to get a fuel drain and that is when he told us: "I can't believe that I did not comprehend that I put the wrong fuel in my vehicle."

This was most definitely what we call the night shift. It was roughly dawn and nobody was around. It was fairly dead so far, and me and Mark were sitting perusing a number of old magazines. That was a rare calm hour in West Yorkshire. Actually it was that quiet that when the phone ultimately rang I jumped! The voice on the opposite end stated: "I ended my evening shift and stupidly filled petrol in my diesel stylish Isuzu Amigo by mistake". I asked him to inform us exactly where the vehicle was and we headed out, getting to him in Halifax no more than half an hour later. The incorrect fuel was removed from the vehicle and he said many thanks for getting there so fast. As we were returning home we found two girls at the side of the street who appeared to have a puncture. Obviously we pulled up 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.
