It was just before five pm on a Monday and even though we were promised a rainless evening, it hadn't stopped pouring! Ray and me were relaxing talking about the recent footy rankings, at the ready for the seventh fuel drain that day to arrive. In due time we received a call from a lovely women on a company expedition who had gone to the Sainsburys petrol station in Ilminster and put petrol in her diesel black Hyundai Santa Fe hire car in error. The unfortunate thing was pretty affected apparently, saying "I simply can't believe I have destroyed the vehicle! I'm just so accustomed to filling up my petrol vehicle that I totally did not remember that I was running a diesel!" I just instructed her to take it easy and not to be concerned, and also that things like this unfortunately often happen. She was able to maneuver the vehicle to a safe position and, because it was no more than a few miles away from where we were, we were able to find the woman quickly. The contaminated fuel was taken out so she could once again go back to the Travelodge she was lodging in. Despite the fact we got very drenched, it was all worth it to watch her drive off calm and less anxious. Another misfuel correction in Somerset done well in my opinion!

Our most recent customer who put contaminated fuel in her car (metallic yellow Toyota MR2) in Ilminster had precisely this crisis: "You probably know that I mistakenly put unleaded in my diesel car last week. I was so bothered about it that I was in tears. However I shouldn't have concerned myself seeing that you were brilliant in fixing it."

This was most definitely an unsociable time to be awake. It was around dawn and noone was around. It had become quite dead up to now, and Ryan and I were relaxing looking at a few old newspapers. It was a rare restful moment in Somerset. Actually it was indeed that relaxing that when my mobile rang it made me jump! The motorist stated: "I have just finished my evening shift and incredibly put petrol in a yellow Lexus by mistake". We instructed him to let us know where exactly he was situated and we hit the road, arriving in Ilminster less than half an hour later. The incorrect fuel was cleaned up and removed from the vehicle. He said thank you for showing up so rapidly. While we were coming back home we found two women on the edge of the street who appeared to have a flat. Accordingly we stopped to change it, much to their delight.

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.
