It was after eight pm on a Friday and despite the fact that we were promised a dry afternoon, it hadn't stopped pouring down rain! Ryan and I were sitting there commenting on the weekend's footy results, at the ready for the 8th telephone call for the day to come in. Finally we had the call from a lovely women on a business expedition who had gone to the Shell petrol garage in Knottingley and put petrol in her diesel uncle's BMW 5 Series hire car by mistake. She was pretty agitated by the sounds of it, telling me "I can't believe that I have ruined the vehicle! I'm so used to filling up my petrol car that I totally didn't remember I was driving a diesel!" I just asked her to relax and not to fret, and that such things regrettably can happen. She managed to maneuver the vehicle to a protected area and, since it was just a few minutes off from the office, we were able to reach her almost instantly. The incorrect fuel was cleaned up and removed and she could return to the hotel she was lodging in. Despite the fact that we got extremely drenched, it was all worthwhile to see her drive home satisfied and much less anxious. Another job in West Yorkshire well done in my opinion!

Wrong Fuel in Car Knottingley - Knottingley Misfuelling

Just had a good night of sleep! It was 7:30 in the morning on a gloomy Bank Holiday Monday and I was on my way to help an older lovely lady who had put petrol in her diesel mom's VW Jetta III in Knottingley. She told us that she drove away from the filling station forecourt and was broken down in a backwater lane en route to visit her family. I got her location plugged straight into the TomTom and arrived within an hour or so. I reached the location and drained the wrong fuel from the vehicle. Whilst I was doing the work she told me, "I'm getting rather absent-minded in my old age and didn't remember about the car using diesel seeing that I had just got it a few days ago when my old car, which I'd used for more than thirty years, inevitably broke down". I finished the job and she gave me a peppermint and thanked me for my efforts. Such a precious West Yorkshire woman!

Wrong Fuel in Car Knottingley - Petrol in Diesel Car Knottingley

We completed a wrong fuel retrieval exercise on the drive of a lovely property in Knottingley not so long ago.

Our specialist went out, even though it was fairly late at night, and did a thorough fuel drain and cleanse on the metallic grey Cadillac SRX .

Wrong Fuel Doctor Knottingley - Fuel Rescue Knottingley

A customer from Knottingley with a full car of youngsters in her diesel dark blue Volkswagen Jetta III had filled her car with £45 of petrol at the Co Op filling station. She contacted us sobbing and genuinely distraught as she had never wrong fuelled before and didn't know what might happen to her car in doing so. We reassured her that all would be okay and that she would be back on the road soon. When we arrived she was visible upset but as our engineer started work on the fuel drain she simmered down because she saw that help was at hand and her vehicle wasn't wrecked. She soon enough cheered up and was up and running saying, "I just can't believe my bad luck putting petrol in my diesel car! Especially with the children on board."

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.
