Wrong Fuel in Car Helmsley - Petrol in Diesel Car Helmsley

Now I'm not actually overly inclined to doing work on Sundays, and 2 weeks ago was no different. I'd only just left home following a lovely lunch cooked for me by the wife, and I was on the way to assist a man who had filled the incorrect petrol in his uncle's Audi. He was situated in Helmsley and so it wasn't long before I reached him. As I drove up right behind the vehicle and got out he told me "Praise the Lord! I had my mind on stuff and didn't perceive I have put the wrong fuel in my petrol car. I need to know if I brought about any kind of harm simply by driving it?" I said that truth be told there should not be any problems and that I would get the wrong fuel drained right away.

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.
