Wrong Fuel Assist Holsworthy - Wrong Fuel in Car Holsworthy

I enjoyed a fantastic evening cycling during the weekend and was feeling cheerful with myself the next morning as I set off to assist a new couple holidaying in Holsworthy. They conked out after adding the wrong fuel into their dilapidated Kia Optima, and were about an hour away. I emerged at their car and laughed to myself as I listened to the woman telling off her partner for turning out to be so daft. "Just how could you actually manage to put the wrong fuel in the vehicle?" she demanded of him. I attempted to tell her that this takes place quite frequently in Devon and that it's really absolutely nothing to be concerned about, but he yet still got an ear bashing by his better half. Unlucky chap. Anyway, I cleaned up and removed all of the contaminated fuel, flushed the engine and filled it up with the right fuel. While watching them drive down the road I waved farewell and pondered on what her indoors would do to me if perhaps I made the very same blunder... I'd never live it down!

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.
