It was before 9 pm on a Wednesday and though we were promised a dry day, it had not given up on raining! Brian and me were sitting there talking over the football results, ready for the next telephone call to come in. Finally we got the phone call from a girl on a business expedition who had gone to the Shell filling garage in Haltwhistle and put the wrong fuel in her diesel bright red Nissan 350Z Roadster rental. She was quite agitated it seemed, crying "I simply cannot believe I have ruined the car! I'm so accustomed to putting petrol in my petrol vehicle I had forgot that I was driving a diesel!" I asked her to take it easy and not to be concerned, plus that such things regrettably happen. She was able to maneuver the car to a secure space and, seeing as it was only a short distance away from the office, we could arrive at the customer quickly. The bad fuel was removed so she could get back to the Travelodge she was staying at.

I had appreciated a wonderful day hiking on my day off and felt cheerful with myself the next working day as I set out to aid a new couple who were on vacation in Haltwhistle. They had pulled over after putting the wrong fuel in their time-worn BMW M3, and were around an hour's travel away. I arrived at their position and smiled as I listened to the woman berating her husband for being so silly. "How could you conceivably find a way to put the wrong fuel in the vehicle?" she asked him. I attempted to explain that this goes on frequently in Northumberland and that it's nothing to be anxious about, even so he still had an ear bashing by his wife. I felt genuine sympathy for the lad. Anyways, I extracted all the wrong fuel, flushed the fuel system and filled it up with the right fuel. Watching as they drove down the road I mouthed bon voyage and wondered what my wife would ask me in the event that I did the same thing... I'd personally under no circumstances hear the end of it!

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.
