Wrong Fuel in Car Kettering - Kettering Misfuelling

What a good night of uninterrupted sleep! 7:00 in the morning on a gloomy Wednesday and I was off to assist an old lovely lady who had put petrol in her diesel modified Volvo S90 in Kettering. I'd been informed she had driven away from the filling station and was stranded in a country road on route to pay a visit to her family. I got her location plugged into the Satnav and got there in less than an hour. I got to the location and removed the contaminated fuel out of the vehicle. While I was doing the drain she told me, "I have been becoming somewhat absent-minded in my senior years and forgot about the car taking diesel seeing that I'd only just purchased it a few days ago because my former one, which I had used for more than twenty five years, inevitably broke down". I got the drain done and she gave me a peppermint and thanked me for my work. Such a pleasant Northamptonshire woman!

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.
