It was around 8 pm on a Tuesday and although we were assured a rainless day, it had not ceased pouring down rain! Ray and I were seated going over the golf rankings, waiting around for the 6th fuel drain of the day to arrive. Before long we had a call from a lovely woman on a company excursion who had gone to the BP filling garage in Ladywood and put the wrong fuel in her diesel son's Mazda323 hire car. The poor thing was rather irritated it seemed, telling me "I can't believe I have destroyed the vehicle! I'm just so familiar with putting petrol in my petrol car I had did not remember I was operating a diesel!" I advised her to relax and not to fret, and also that such things can happen. She had managed to maneuver the car into a secure position and, since it was just a short distance away from the office, we were able to arrive at the lady right away. The bad fuel was cleaned up and removed and she could once again go back to the Premier Inn she was lodging in.

I had a wonderful afternoon fishing on the weekend and felt delighted the following day as I set out to aid a young couple on holiday in Ladywood. They broken down after filling diesel into their grey Volvo S40, and were around an hour away. I turned up at their car and smiled to myself while I heard to the woman chastising her partner for turning out to be so silly. "How could you even find a way to fill the vehicle up using the wrong fuel?" she demanded of him. I attempted to explain that this situation occurs everyday in Birmingham and that it is nothing at all to fret about, however he all the same got his ear bent by his better half. Unfortunate guy. Anyways, I removed the wrong fuel, gave the fuel system a flush and gave them some appropriate fuel. While watching them drive away I shouted hasta la vista and pondered on what my wife would tell me if I did the same thing... I'd never ever hear the end of it!

Wrong Fuel in Car Ladywood - Petrol in Diesel Car Ladywood

I am not actually that keen on doing work weekends, and last week was no different. I had only just come away from the wife and kids filled with a fantastic Sunday roast made by the missus, and I was on the way to sort out a fellow who put the incorrect petrol in his modified Volvo XC70. He was situated in Ladywood so it wouldn't be long before I reached him. Just as I drove up right behind the car and got out he explained to me "Praise the Lord! I had my thoughts on other things and didn't realise I had put the wrong fuel in my petrol vehicle. I need to know if I brought about some damage as a result of running it?" I said that generally there shouldn't be any kind of problems and also that I'd get the wrong fuel drained as soon as possible for him. As expected I got the contaminated fuel drained from the vehicle and filled it with the appropriate fuel, and thus yet another happy customer could continue on their journey without any subsequent difficulty. He did not stop saying thanks to me, and this is exactly what makes carrying out work on weekends in Birmingham just a tiny bit better in my opinion!

She had filled petrol in her diesel son's Mercedes-Benz R-Class and, like countless prior to her, assumed that she could just top up her vehicle with diesel and it'd be fine. The engine was coughing and then it stopped when she got to the the front of her office.

She came outside soon after and thanked us saying, "I'm very glad you sorted my vehicle."

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.
