Wrong Fuel Assist Hartlepool - Wrong Fuel in Car Hartlepool

I had enjoyed a perfect evening hiking during my off day and felt pleased the next morning as I set out to assist a new family who were holidaying in Hartlepool. They had pulled over after inserting the wrong fuel in their mum's Volvo960, and they were about half an hour's travel away. I showed up at their car and smiled as I listened to the woman telling her partner off for actually being so daft. "Just how could you actually find a way to put the wrong fuel in the vehicle?" she demanded of him. I wanted to explain that this goes on regularly in Durham and that it's nothing at all to worry about, nonetheless he all the same got an ear bashing by his wife. Unlucky chap. Anyways, I cleaned up and removed all of the wrong fuel, flushed the fuel system and filled them up with the correct fuel. While they drove away I shouted farewell and thought about what my missus would ask me if perhaps I made the same error... I'd personally never ever 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.
