Wrong Fuel in Car Hungerford - Hungerford Misfuelling

Just had a fantastic night's uninterrupted sleep! 7:30 in the morning on a warm Sunday and I was on my way to help an old lady after she had put the wrong fuel in her diesel apricot Cadillac Brougham in Hungerford. I had been advised she drove away from the filling station forecourt and broken down on a backwater road on route to pay a visit to her godchildren. I plugged her location in the TomTom and got there in less than an hour. I got to the stricken lady and extracted the wrong fuel from the vehicle. As I was doing the drain she said to me, "Now I'm getting fairly absent-minded in my senior years and didn't remember about the car needing diesel since I'd only acquired it a short while ago after my former one, which I used for more than 30 years, finally broke down". I got the drain done and she gifted me a toffee and thanked me for my efforts. What a lovely Berkshire lady!

Wrong Fuel in Car Hungerford - Petrol in Diesel Car Hungerford

I'm not actually that enthusiastic about doing the job on weekends, and 2 weeks ago was the same. I'd only just departed the wife and kids following a fantastic Sunday roast cooked by the better half, and I was en route to sort out a guy who filled the incorrect petrol in his compact Mazda MX-6. He was somewhere in Hungerford therefore I was there soon. Just as I drove up behind the car and got busy draining he explained to me "Thank God! I stupidly had my concentration on stuff and didn't ascertain I've put the wrong fuel in my petrol vehicle. Have I caused any harm by running it?" I determined that there probably should not be damage and that I would drain the wrong fuel as soon as possible. It goes without saying that I got the contaminated fuel drained from the car and filled up with some suitable fuel, and thus another pleased client could continue his trip without any subsequent fuss. The guy could not stop saying thanks to me, and this is what tends to make working on Sundays in Berkshire that little better for me personally!

This was certainly what is called the night shift. It was around 3:30 in the morning and hardly anyone was about. It was quite dead so far, and Paul and I were loafing browsing some old articles. This was a rare calm time in Berkshire. Actually it was in fact that tranquil that the instant the phone ultimately rang it made me start! The voice explained: "I just finished my overnight shift and foolishly put the wrong fuel in my diesel bright white Austin Mini Cooper by mistake". I got him to tell us just where he was and we left, ending up in Hungerford 30 minutes later. The contaminated fuel was cleaned from the engine and he said thanks for showing up so fast. As we were coming back to the depot we spotted two young ladies at the side of the highway who seemed like they suffered a puncture. As a result we got out to change it, much to their elation.

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.
