I enjoyed a fantastic day fishing during my holiday and was feeling contented with myself the following working day as I set out to aid a new family who were on holiday in Harrogate. They pulled over after inserting the wrong fuel into their metallic green BMW 745, and they were approximately an hour's travel away. I arrived at their car and laughed to myself while I listened to the woman telling her hubby off for being so foolish. "Just how could you possibly manage to put the wrong fuel in the vehicle?" she demanded of him. I wanted to tell her that this goes on frequently in North Yorkshire and that it is nothing at all to fret about, however he yet still had an ear bashing. Poor lad. In any case, I removed all of the contaminated fuel, flushed the fuel system and filled them up with the right fuel. While they drove down the road I mouthed good bye and wondered what my wife would say to me if I made the very same mistake... I would never live it down!

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.
