It was just after seven pm on a Thursday and while we were assured a rainless afternoon, it hadn't given up on raining! James and I were relaxing commenting on the weekend's tennis results, ready for the 6th call to arrive. Eventually we had the call from a young lady on a company expedition who had arrived at the BP petrol station in Knutsford and filled petrol in a diesel black Skoda Fabia hire car in error. She was very agitated it seemed, saying "I can't believe I have messed up the vehicle! I'm so used to putting unleaded in my petrol car I had did not remember I was running a diesel!" I just advised her to settle back and not to worry, also that things like this regrettably often happen.

Wrong Fuel in Car Knutsford - Knutsford Misfuelling

Just had a fantastic night of sleep! 7:00 am on a sunny Wednesday and I was en route to help an old sweetheart who had put the wrong fuel in her diesel cobalt blue Hyundai Sonata in Knutsford. She informed us that she had left the petrol station forecourt and was pulled up on a country lane along the way to see her godchildren. I popped her location into the TomTom and was on-scene within 60 minutes. I arrived at the location and drained the wrong fuel from the car. Whilst I was doing it she told me, "Now I'm getting somewhat forgetful in my senior years and forgot about the car using diesel as I'd only purchased it a week ago because my previous one, which I'd had for over 25 years, eventually gave up the ghost". I finished the drain and she presented me a toffee and thanked me for my hard work. What a pleasant Cheshire woman!

I'd had a terrific evening golfing on my holiday and was feeling pleased the following day as I set off to assist a new family on holiday in Knutsford. They'd conked out after adding petrol into their metallic grey Subaru Legacy, and were close to half an hour's travel away. I got there at their position and laughed while I heard to the wife chastising her spouse for turning out to be so stupid. "Just how could you even be able to put the wrong fuel in the car?" she asked him. I wanted to explain that this problem takes place all the time in Cheshire and that it's absolutely nothing to get worried about, however he yet still got his ear bent. Poor chap. Anyways, I drained the polluted fuel, gave the engine a flush and gave them some correct fuel. While they drove away I waved bon voyage and thought about what her indoors would say to me if ever I made the very same error... I'd under no circumstances live it down!

Wrong Fuel in Car Knutsford - Petrol in Diesel Car Knutsford

Now I'm not ever too interested in carrying out work on Sundays, and a couple weeks ago was no different. I had just come away from the family after having a lovely lunch cooked for us by the better half, and I was on the way to sort out a man who put the wrong petrol in his worn-out Audi S5. He was somewhere in Knutsford thus I was with him rapidly. Just as I arrived behind the vehicle and got busy draining he explained to me "Praise the Almighty! I had my attention on other considerations and failed to ascertain I had put diesel in my petrol car. Is it likely I created some harm simply by driving it?" I said generally there should not be any damage and that I'd personally remove the contaminated fuel immediately for him. It goes without saying that I drained the contaminated fuel from the car and put in the appropriate fuel, and thus one more content motorist had the ability to carry on with his trip without the need for difficulty. He couldn't stop thanking me, and that is what can make earning a living on weekends in Cheshire just that tiny bit less painful for me!

This was certainly what is called the graveyard shift. It was about dawn and nobody was about. It had been quite uneventful thus far, and Ryan and I were loafing about looking through a couple of old papers. This was an uncommon peaceful moment in Cheshire. Actually it was that relaxing that the instant the telephone inevitably rang I jumped! The voice on the opposite end stated: "I've concluded my overnight shift and foolishly filled the wrong fuel in the apple green Audi RS 6". We instructed him to tell us exactly where the vehicle was situated and we hit the road, getting to him in Knutsford no more than an hour later. The contaminated fuel was removed from the engine and he thanked us for arriving so promptly. While we were returning to base we found two girls at the edge of the highway who appeared to have a flat tyre. As a result we pulled over 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.
