It was 7:30 in the morning on a rainy Sunday and we were en route to assist an older lovely lady who put contaminated fuel in her diesel mint green Cadillac SRX in Hayle. I'd been advised she had driven away from the petrol station forecourt and broken down along a backwater road on route to visit her family.

It truly was what is called the graveyard shift. It was around sunrise and hardly anyone was stirring. It was fairly uneventful up to now, and me and Ryan were loafing perusing some old newspapers. That was an unusual tranquil moment in Cornwall. Actually it was so relaxing that the instant the phone inevitably rang it made me start! The customer stated: "I have concluded my night shift and stupidly put the wrong fuel in the dilapidated Suzuki Samurai in error". I asked him to tell us where he was located and we left, getting to him in Hayle under an hour later. The wrong fuel was removed from the engine. He thanked us for arriving so quickly. While we were returning home we found two girls on the side of the road who appeared to have a flat. So we stopped and helped 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:

    • 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.
