I had appreciated a fantastic afternoon cycling during my day off and was feeling satisfied with myself the following day as I headed out to aid a young family holidaying in High Heath. They'd stopped after inserting petrol in their sky blue Vauxhall Astra, and the car was roughly half an hour away. I emerged at their location and smirked to myself while I heard to the woman telling off her husband for being so stupid. "Exactly how could you possibly be able to fill the car up with the wrong fuel?" she demanded of him. I wanted to explain that this problem comes to pass continuously in Birmingham and that it is absolutely nothing to be anxious about, even so he still had an ear bashing by his wife. Poor boy. Anyhow, I extracted all of the polluted fuel, flushed the engine and filled it up with the correct fuel. As they drove away I mouthed good-bye and thought about what my wife would say to me if I did the same thing... I would 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.
