This was certainly what is called an unsociable time to be up. It was close to dawn and almost noone was around. It was quite quiet until now, and Brian and I were sitting about looking through some old magazines. This was a rare tranquil moment in Hertfordshire. It was indeed that relaxing that the instant my mobile eventually rang it made me jump! The customer on the phone said: "I have only just completed my night shift and incredibly poured petrol in my diesel apricot Hyundai in error". I got him to inform us just where the vehicle was situated and we set off, reaching him in Hitchin no more than half an hour later. The wrong fuel was taken out from the engine and he said thanks for getting there so quickly. As we were returning to the office we spotted two women at the edge of the highway who seemed to have a flat tyre. As a result we pulled up to help them 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.
