I had enjoyed a terrific day cycling on my off day and was feeling satisfied with myself the next morning as I set out to aid a young family who were vacationing in Kidderminster. They broken down after putting diesel in their classic Volvo240, and the car was roughly half an hour's travel away. I got there at their car and laughed to myself as I listened to the woman telling her partner off for turning out to be so silly. "Just how could you actually find a way to fill up by using the wrong fuel?" she demanded of him. I tried to explain that this occurs constantly in Worcestershire and that it's in reality nothing at all to fret about, nonetheless he still got an earful by his missus. Unfortunate chap. Anyhow, I cleaned up and removed all the contaminated fuel, flushed the motor and filled them up with the right fuel.

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.
