It was after 8 pm on a Tuesday and even though we were guaranteed a rainless evening, it had not given up on raining! Ray and I were relaxing going over the weekend's rugby results, waiting for the sixth fuel drain to come in. Inevitably we received the phone call from a woman on a company trip who had gone to the Texaco filling garage in Horsforth and filled petrol in her diesel beloved Chrysler PT Cruiser rental car in error. The poor thing was somewhat irritated it seemed, stating "I simply can't believe that I've destroyed the vehicle! I am so familiar with putting petrol in my petrol vehicle I completely forgot I was using a diesel!" I just asked her to take it easy and not to be concerned, also that such things regrettably do happen. She had managed to maneuver the car into a protected position and, because it was only a few miles off from our van, we were able to reach the lady without delay. The wrong fuel was extracted so she could return to the Travelodge she was staying in. Despite the fact we got very drenched, it was all worth the effort to see her drive away satisfied and less stressed. A misfuel correction in West Yorkshire well done in my mind!

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.
