It was about six pm on a Monday and even though we were guaranteed a dry day, it had not ceased pouring down rain! Brian and I were sitting talking about the weekend's golf rankings, ready for the 6th job for the day to come in. Inevitably we got a phone call from a lady on a company expedition who had arrived at the Shell petrol station in Horncastle and filled the wrong fuel in her diesel gorgeous Toyota Solara lease car in error. She was fairly affected apparently, crying "I simply can't believe that I've wrecked the car! I'm just so accustomed to filling my petrol car that I totally didn't remember I was using a diesel!" I just asked her to settle back and not to worry, and that such things do happen. She managed to get the vehicle into a safe area and, because it was just a few minutes away from our van, we were able to reach her right away. The wrong fuel was cleaned up and removed and she could go home to the Premier Inn she was residing at. Despite the fact we got really drenched, it was all worth the time to see her drive off calm and less apprehensive. Another misfuel correction in Lincolnshire well done in my mind!

It was 7:30 in the morning on a rainy Tuesday and we were en route to assist an elder woman who had put the wrong fuel in her diesel dark green VW GLI in Horncastle. She told us that she had left the petrol station forecourt and was broken down along a country lane on route to pay a visit to her grandchildren. I plugged the location straight into the TomTom and was on-scene in less than an hour. I turned up at the location and drained the wrong fuel in the car car. Whilst I was working she explained, "I'm becoming relatively absent-minded in my senior years and didn't remember about the car taking diesel as I had just bought it a couple of days back when my old car, which I had for about twenty years, eventually broke down". I got the job completed and she gifted me a toffee and thanked me for my hard work. Such a lovely Lincolnshire woman!

A young lady from Horncastle with her kids in her diesel matte black Chevrolet Cavalier had filled her vehicle with £30 of petrol at the Tesco petrol station. She contacted us sobbing and very distraught as she had never wrong fuelled and did not know what could happen to her vehicle because of it. We assured her that all would be alright and that she would be in action quickly. When we arrived she was visible upset but while our engineer got to work on the fuel drain she simmered down because she recognised that something could be done and her car wasn't wrecked. She quickly cheered up and was on her way saying, "I can't believe my misfortune putting petrol in my diesel car! Particularly with the little ones in the back."

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.
