It was about eight pm on a Thursday and while we were guaranteed a rainless day, it hadn't stopped pouring! Paul and I were seated talking about the weekend's football, ready for the seventh fuel drain of the day to come in. Finally we received the phone call from a lady on a company expedition who had pulled into the Texaco petrol station in Horbury and put the wrong fuel in a diesel red Mazda rental car in error. The poor thing was quite distressed by the sounds of it, saying "I still cannot believe I've messed up the vehicle! I am just so used to putting petrol in my petrol vehicle I totally forgot I was driving a diesel!" I advised her to relax and not to be concerned, plus that things like this regrettably happen. She managed to relocate the vehicle into a protected area and, since it was no more than a few miles off from the office, we were able to arrive at her swiftly. The incorrect fuel was extracted so she was able to once again go back to the Travelodge she was residing in.

What a great night's uninterrupted sleep! 7:00 in the morning on a sunny Wednesday and we were en route to help an older sweetheart after she put contaminated fuel in her diesel raspberry red Land Rover in Horbury. She informed us that she had driven away from the petrol station forecourt and stranded along a backwater road en route to pay a visit to her godchildren. I got the location punched in the TomTom and arrived within an hour or so. I arrived at the destination and removed the contaminated fuel in the car vehicle.

This really was the night shift. It was around sunrise and almost noone was stirring. It had been pretty uneventful up to now, and Ray and I were sitting about looking through a number of old articles. This was an unusual calm hour in West Yorkshire. Actually it was that quiet that when the telephone ultimately rang it made me start! The motorist said: "I finished my night shift and incredibly filled the wrong fuel in my worse for wear Toyota Sienna by mistake". We got him to inform us where exactly the vehicle was and we headed out, arriving in Horbury less than half an hour later. The wrong fuel was cleared from the car and he thanked us profusely for coming so promptly.

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.
