It was after ten pm on a Saturday and although we were assured a dry and fresh afternoon, it hadn't stopped raining! Mark and me were seated there commenting on the recent rugby results, waiting around for the sixth fuel drain of the day to arrive. Before long we had a call from a young lady on a company trip who had arrived at the Sainsburys petrol garage in Leicester and filled the wrong fuel in her diesel sky blue BMW 1 Series rental car in error. The unfortunate thing was very troubled apparently, crying "I just can't believe that I've ruined the vehicle! I am so accustomed to filling up my petrol car I completely didn't remember I was driving a diesel!" We asked her to settle back and not to fret, and that things like this sadly do happen. She had managed to relocate the vehicle into a safe position and, seeing that it was only a few miles off from where we were, we were able to get to the lady rather quickly. The wrong fuel was removed so she could return to the Premier Inn she was staying in. Despite the fact we got very wet, it was all worth the effort to see her drive home calm and not so apprehensive. Yet another job in Leicestershire well done in my books!

The 3 things you NEED to know about fuel contamination!

Wrong Fuel in Car Leicester - Leicester Misfuelling

A lady had conked out on a road, Leicester just after having misfueled. She was in tears and fairly agitated as she had put £42 of petrol in her diesel car. As she contacted us we made an effort to cool her as best we could, telling her that everything would be fine. By the time we reached her she was no longer aggrieved and was pretty fascinated in observing our fuel drainer do the fuel drain on her dark red Bentley Continental. Later she said: "My vehicle is like my baby, I recently paid for it so it really worried me that I had put such an abundance of wrong fuel in it. I'm so happy that it was very easily repairable."

A person contacted us from his residence on a road in Leicester. He exclaimed, "My vehicle (a creamy white Bentley Continental) is not starting up and is producing very bad sounds when I turn the ignition." He said that he put unleaded in his diesel car but then thought he would solve the problem by putting extra Diesel on top. We arrived promptly, carried out the fuel drain and filled it up once again with fresh Diesel. He said he'd be sure to inform people not to fill up in addition to the wrong fuel but to have it cleaned out right away.

We did a wrong fuel retrieval exercise outside a spectacular house in Leicester a few weeks ago. "I put unleaded in my diesel car and was able to very nearly reach home when my car cut out." Our technician went out, despite the fact that it was quite late at night, and completed a full fuel drain and purge on the boss' Mercedes Sprinter .

This was most definitely what we call the night shift. It was close to dawn and hardly anyone was about. It was fairly quiet until now, and me and Mark were relaxing looking through a few old newspapers. It was an uncommon calm hour in Leicestershire. It was that tranquil that the instant the telephone inevitably rang it made me start! The voice stated: "I have just completed my overnight shift and incredibly put petrol in the bright red Land Rover Defender by mistake". We told him to inform us exactly where the car was located and we left, reaching him in Leicester less than an hour or so later. The contaminated fuel was cleaned from the engine and he thanked us profusely for arriving so promptly. As we were going back home we noticed two young women on the side of the street who appeared to have a flat. Accordingly we stopped and helped 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.
