It was just after 8 pm on a Friday and although we were promised a rainless night, it hadn't given up on raining! Mark and I were seated there going over the weekend's golf results, waiting for the 6th telephone call for the day to come in. In due time we received a call from a lovely woman on a company excursion who had pulled into the Texaco petrol station in Kings Norton and put the wrong fuel in her diesel cobalt blue Vauxhall Insignia hire car in error. She was rather troubled apparently, crying "I still can't believe that I have messed up the vehicle! I'm just so accustomed to filling my petrol car that I completely did not remember I was driving a diesel!" I instructed her to relax and not to worry, and that things like this unfortunately happen. She managed to move the car to a safe area and, because it was no more than a few minutes away from where we were, we could reach her almost instantly. The wrong fuel was extracted and she could once again go back to the motel she was lodging in. Despite the fact we got pretty wet, it was all rewarding to watch her drive off contented and much less stressed. Another fuel drain in Birmingham well done in my mind!

Ahhh, that was a quality night of sleep! 7:00 in the morning on a bright Wednesday and I was on my way to assist an old lovely lady who put the wrong fuel in her diesel metallic yellow Renault Traffic in Kings Norton. She informed us that she had driven away from the filling station and was stranded on a country lane en route to pay a visit to her godchildren. I got her location punched into the Satnav and was with her inside an hour or so. I reached the car and extracted the wrong fuel in the car vehicle. Whilst I was doing it she said, "I have been becoming rather absent-minded in my old age and didn't remember about the car needing diesel seeing that I'd only just acquired it a week ago because my former one, which I had had for more than twenty five years, finally died on me". I got the drain done and she presented me a Murray mint and thanked me for my efforts. What a precious Birmingham woman!

Wrong Fuel Assist Kings Norton - Wrong Fuel in Car Kings Norton

I'd had a fantastic day cycling on my afternoon off and was feeling cheerful with myself the next working day as I set off to assist a new family holidaying in Kings Norton. They'd broken down after adding diesel into their faithful Cadillac CTS, and the car was roughly an hour away. I turned up at their location and smiled to myself as I listened to the gal telling her spouse off for actually being so daft. "Precisely how could you possibly manage to fill up by using the wrong fuel?" she said to him. I attempted to clarify that this situation comes to pass everyday in Birmingham and that it's absolutely nothing to worry about, even so he in spite of everything got his ear bent by his wife. Poor chap. Anyways, I drained out all the contaminated fuel, flushed the motor and gave it some correct fuel. As they drove off I mouthed good-bye and pondered on what her indoors would tell me if I made the exact same mistake... I'd never ever live it down!

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.
