Wrong Fuel in Car Ilfracombe - Ilfracombe Misfuelling

Ahhh, that was a quality night's uninterrupted sleep! 7:30 am on a sunny Tuesday and we were on the way to assist an old sweetheart who put petrol in her diesel abused BMW Alpina B7 in Ilfracombe. She told us that she had driven away from the petrol station forecourt and was broken down in a rural road on the way to visit her family. I punched the location straight into the Satnav and arrived within an hour. I got to the location and drained the wrong fuel from the car. As I was doing the drain she said, "I am becoming relatively absent-minded in my old age and did not remember about the vehicle needing diesel as I'd only just acquired it a few days back when my previous car, which I had used for in excess of twenty five years, eventually broke down". I finished the job and she presented me a Murray mint and thanked me for my hard work. What a pleasant Devon lady!

So, if you've filled your petrol automobile with diesel, or the wrong fuel in your diesel car wherever in Devon, speak to us right away. Our expert technicians are ready for you.

Wrong Fuel in Car Ilfracombe - Petrol in Diesel Car Ilfracombe

We carried out a wrong fuel removal exercise outside a spectacular property in Ilfracombe not so long ago. "I put the wrong fuel in my diesel car and was able to very nearly arrive at home when my car broke down." Our technician went out, despite the fact that it was fairly late at night, and did a standard fuel drain and purge on the immaculate Fiat Bravo to everyone's satisfaction.

Wrong Fuel Doctor Ilfracombe - Fuel Rescue Ilfracombe

A woman from Ilfracombe with a full car of youngsters in her diesel dad's Ford Ranger had filled her car with £40 of petrol at the service station. She called us crying and very distraught as she had never put petrol in a diesel before and didn't know what would happen to her vehicle . We told her that the vehicle would be okay and that she would be back up and running very quickly. When we got there she was visible upset but as our engineer started work on the fuel drain she simmered down because she recognised that something could be done and her vehicle wasn't unfixable. She soon enough brightened up and was on the road again saying, "I just can't believe my luck putting petrol in my diesel vehicle! Especially with the kids 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.
