I'd had a fantastic evening fishing during my holiday and felt satisfied with myself the next day as I headed out to aid a new couple who were holidaying in Leyton. They'd stopped after adding the wrong fuel in their modified Saab 9000, and were around an hour away. I arrived at their car and laughed while I heard to the lady telling her spouse off for turning out to be so silly. "Just how could you actually find a way to put the wrong fuel in the car?" she told him. I wanted to explain that this occurs everyday in Greater London and that it is nothing at all to stress about, nevertheless he yet still had an ear bashing. Unfortunate lad. In any case, I drained all the wrong fuel, flushed the fuel system and gave it some correct fuel. While they drove away I waved good-bye and thought about what my missus would ask me if ever I did the exact same thing... I'd personally under no circumstances hear the end of it!

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.
