It was after 7 pm on a Monday and despite the fact that we were assured a dry and fresh afternoon, it had not given up on pouring! Mark and I were resting there talking about the footy, prepared for the next call that day to come in. In due time we received a call from a lady on a business excursion who had pulled into the Tesco petrol station in Heywood and filled petrol in a diesel silver Honda Civic Si lease car in error. The poor lady was very irritated apparently, crying "I can't believe I have messed up the vehicle! I am so used to filling my petrol vehicle I completely did not remember that I was running a diesel!" I just told her to relax and not to be concerned, also that things like this sadly happen. She was able to maneuver the car into a protected position and, seeing as it was only a few miles off from where we were, we could find the woman right away. The incorrect fuel was cleaned up and removed so she was able to once again go back to the Premier Inn she was staying at. Despite the fact that we got really soaked, it was all worth the effort seeing her drive away relaxed and much less concerned. Another misfuel correction in Greater Manchester done well in my books!

Wrong Fuel in Car Heywood - Petrol in Diesel Car Heywood

Now I'm certainly not so hot for doing work on Sundays, and a couple weeks ago was no different. I'd just left the family following a wonderful lunch made for us by the missus, and I was en route to help a man after he had put the wrong petrol in his father's Vauxhall Vivaro. He was stationed in Heywood and so I was on scene soon. As I pulled up at the rear of the car and got busy draining he explained to me "Thank the Lord! I stupidly had my thoughts on something else and did not grasp that I have put diesel in my petrol car. Is it possible I inflicted any kind of problems because of running it?" I determined there shouldn't be any kind of damage and that I'd drain the contaminated fuel immediately. Obviously I got the contaminated fuel drained from the vehicle and filled it with the suitable fuel, and so yet another pleased client was able to continue his travelling with no hassle. The guy did not stop thanking me, and this is what makes carrying out work on weekends in Greater Manchester just that small bit less painful for me personally!

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.
