It was just before 10 pm on a Thursday and despite the fact that we were promised a dry evening, it hadn't ceased raining! James and I were relaxing there talking over the weekend's sports results, waiting around for the next telephone call of the day to arrive. Before long we got a call from a woman on a business expedition who had gone to the BP filling garage in Llangefni and put petrol in her diesel mint condition Mazda929 lease car by mistake. She was somewhat agitated by the sounds of it, crying "I cannot believe I have ruined the vehicle! I'm just so familiar with putting petrol in my petrol vehicle that I completely forgot that I was using a diesel!" I just told her to calm down and not to fret, plus that things like this unfortunately do happen. She was able to get the car into a secure area and, seeing as it was no more than a few minutes away from where we were, we could get to her fairly quickly. The bad fuel was removed and she could once again go back to the motel she was lodging in. Although we got really drenched, it was all rewarding to watch her drive away contented and less stressed. Another misfuel correction in Anglesey well done in my opinion!

This was most definitely the night shift. It was close to 2:30am and almost noone was about. It had become quite dead until now, and me and Ryan were sitting about browsing a number of old newspapers. That was an unusual calm time in Anglesey. Actually it was indeed that quiet that the instant the phone eventually rang it made me jump! The voice said: "I have ended my evening shift and stupidly put petrol in my well worn Volkswagen Golf III by mistake". I got him to inform us where exactly he was and we left, arriving in Llangefni no more than 30 minutes later. The fuel was cleaned up and removed from the vehicle. He thanked us profusely for showing up so fast. As we were coming back home we noticed two young ladies at the edge of the road who looked like they had a puncture.

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.
