It was just after 9 pm on a Monday and even though we were assured a dry day, it hadn't stopped raining! Ray and me were seated there going over the recent golf rankings, waiting around for the next telephone call to arrive. Before long we got the phone call from a woman on a business excursion who had arrived at the Texaco petrol garage in Leatherhead and filled the wrong fuel in a diesel old BMW 745 hire car by mistake. She was quite distressed by the sounds of it, stating "I just can't believe I have wrecked the vehicle! I'm just so familiar with filling my petrol vehicle I completely forgot I was operating a diesel!" I just advised her to relax and not to worry, and that such things sadly happen.

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.
