Wrong Fuel in Car Ivybridge - Ivybridge Misfuelling

A motorist had stopped on a street, Ivybridge having just wrong fuelled. She was sobbing and quite troubled as she had put £50 of petrol in her diesel car. When she phoned us we made an effort to calm her as well as we could, encouraging her that all would be no problem. When we arrived with her she was not annoyed any more and was interested in observing our fuel drainer do the fuel drain on her mustard yellow Hyundai Genesis Coupe. Soon after she said: "My vehicle is akin to my baby, I only just got it and so it truly worried me that I had put a whole lot of wrong fuel in it. I'm very pleased that it was easily repairable."

I enjoyed a great evening fishing during my day off and felt satisfied with myself the next working day as I headed out to help a new family on holiday in Ivybridge. They had conked out after inserting petrol into their Ferarri red Jaguar XJ Series, and were roughly half an hour away. I showed up at their location and laughed as I listened to the girl chastising her husband for being so daft. "Exactly how could you possibly find a way to put the wrong fuel in the car?" she asked him. I attempted to tell her that this happens quite frequently in Devon and that it's actually absolutely nothing to be anxious about, however he in spite of everything had his ear bent by his wife. I felt sorry for the chap. In any case, I extracted the contaminated fuel, flushed the motor and filled it up with the correct fuel. Watching them drive down the road I mouthed good-bye and thought about what my wife would do to me if I made the same error... I'd under no circumstances live it down!

Wrong Fuel in Car Ivybridge - Petrol in Diesel Car Ivybridge

We fairly recently received a call from a young man who had put the incorrect fuel in his wife's Hyundai HED-5 in Ivybridge. He had come to a stand-still on the street. "After putting unleaded in my diesel car I didn't notice the issue up until the time it stopped working. You took the wrong fuel from my car and got it running again. I was amazed as a result of both how quick you were and your pricing". Of course we arrived on the scene promptly and flushed the engine after flushing all of the petrol from the diesel tank. When he arrived our fuel drainer said the client was raging, but was satisfied afterwards.

A lady from Ivybridge with her kids in her diesel mint green Chevrolet Camaro had filled her vehicle with £20 of petrol at the service station. She called us crying and genuinely worried as she had never put petrol in a diesel and didn't know what would happen to her vehicle because of it. We told her that everything would be fine and that she would be back ready to go in no time at all. When we arrived she was visible upset but while our technician got to work on the fuel drain she simmered down as she saw that help was at hand and her car wasn't ruined. She quickly brightened up and was up and running saying, "I can't believe my luck putting petrol in my diesel car! 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.
