This was most definitely an unsociable time to be up. It was roughly sunrise and almost noone was stirring. It was rather dead so far, and Brian and I were sitting around reading through a couple of old newspapers. This was an uncommon tranquil time in Somerset. Actually it was in fact so peaceful that the instant the phone inevitably rang I leaped with surprise! The motorist said: "I've ended my overnight shift and foolishly poured the wrong fuel in the diesel old Range Rover Evoque". We asked him to inform us exactly where he was and we headed out, arriving in Keynsham not as much as 30 minutes later. The contaminated fuel was extracted from the vehicle. He thanked us for getting there so promptly. While we were returning to the office we saw two girls on the side of the road who looked like they had a flat. So we pulled up to help them 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.
