It was just before six pm on a Wednesday and though we were guaranteed a rainless evening, it hadn't ceased raining! Brian and I were relaxing there going over the tennis, waiting around for the next job for the day to come in. Inevitably we had a call from a young lady on a company expedition who had pulled into the BP filling garage in Heathfield and put petrol in a diesel apple green VW Eurovan lease car. The unfortunate lady was fairly troubled it seemed, telling me "I just can't believe that I've destroyed the car! I am just so familiar with putting unleaded in my petrol vehicle that I totally didn't remember that I was operating a diesel!" We told her to calm down and not to worry, plus that such things sadly often happen. She had managed to move the car into a protected position and, as it was just a short distance away from our van, we were able to reach the customer without delay. The bad fuel was taken out and she could return to the motel she was lodging at. Despite the fact we got pretty wet, it was all rewarding to watch her drive home calm and much less worried. Another job in East Sussex well done in my mind!

Wrong Fuel in Car Heathfield - Heathfield Misfuelling

Just had a great night's uninterrupted sleep! 7:00 on a rainy Saturday and we were en route to help an elder lovely lady who put the wrong fuel in her diesel luxury Mazda B-Series in Heathfield. I'd been informed she drove away from the filling station forecourt and pulled up on a backwater lane on route to see her family. I got her location punched in the TomTom and arrived inside an hour. I turned up at the location and removed the contaminated fuel from the car. Whilst I was doing it she said, "Now I'm becoming quite absent-minded in my senior years and forgot about the vehicle using diesel because I'd only bought it a few days ago right after my other one, which I had for in excess of twenty five years, inevitably died". I finished the drain and she gifted me a Murray mint and said thanks a lot. Such a precious East Sussex lady!

I had a great afternoon cycling on my off day and felt pleased the next working day as I set out to aid a young couple who were away in Heathfield. They'd broken down after adding diesel into their silver Toyota, and the car was close to an hour away. I showed up at their position and smirked to myself as I heard to the woman telling her husband off for being so daft. "How could you possibly be able to fill the vehicle up using the wrong fuel?" she asked him. I tried to clarify that this problem happens all the time in East Sussex and that it's absolutely nothing to be concerned about, however he yet still got an ear bashing. Poor lad. At any rate, I cleaned up and removed the contaminated fuel, flushed the engine and gave them some appropriate fuel. While watching them drive off I waved bon voyage and thought about what my wife would say to me if I made the exact same error... I'd personally never live it down!

We did a wrong fuel retrieval exercise near a spectacular residential home in Heathfield recently. "I had put the wrong fuel in my diesel car and was able to very nearly arrive at home when my car broke down." Our technician went out, despite the fact that it was fairly late at night, and did a full fuel drain and purge on the mustard yellow Subaru Outback Sport .

This was the graveyard shift. It was roughly 3:30am and nobody was stirring. It had been rather uneventful thus far, and Ray and I were relaxing reading through some old papers. That was an uncommon calm moment in East Sussex. Actually it was indeed so peaceful that the instant the phone eventually rang I leaped with surprise! The motorist on the phone said: "I have only just ended my overnight shift and incredibly poured petrol in a diesel sky blue Peugeot 405 in error". I got him to let us know exactly where he was and we headed out, arriving in Heathfield only 30 minutes later. The contaminated fuel was taken out from the engine. He thanked us for showing up so rapidly. While we were coming back home we noticed two young ladies at the side of the highway who appeared to have a puncture. Obviously we pulled up to change it, much to their delight.

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.
