It was about 6 pm on a Tuesday and although we were assured a rainless night, it hadn't stopped raining! James and I were resting talking over the weekend's golf rankings, ready for the next call to come in. Finally we had a call from a girl on a company expedition who had pulled into the Tesco petrol station in Llay and filled the wrong fuel in her diesel metallic grey Volkswagen hire car by mistake. She was very irritated by the sounds of it, stating "I can not believe I've destroyed the car! I am just so accustomed to putting unleaded in my petrol car that I had forgot I was running a diesel!" I just advised her to relax and not to worry, and that these things sadly do happen. She was able to move the car into a protected area and, because it was no more than a short distance from our van, we could get to the customer right away. The incorrect fuel was cleaned up and removed and she could return to the hotel she was residing at. Despite the fact we got extremely wet, it was all worth it seeing her drive off calm and not so apprehensive. Another misfuel correction in Wrexham well done in my books!

A motorist had come to a halt on a street, Llay just after having put the wrong fuel in her car. She was in tears and really distressed as she had put £45 of petrol in her diesel car. When she phoned us we tried to calm her as well as we could, telling her that it would be ok. By the time we reached her she was not troubled any more and was quite curious in watching our fuel drainer do the fuel drain on her immaculate Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class.

I'm terribly pleased that it was so very easily fixable."

We recently received a phone call about a motorist who had put the wrong fuel in his wife's Fiat Punto in Llay. He had conked out on the street. "It was unbelievable how speedy you people were in getting a technician out to assist me when I erroneously petrol in my diesel. Thank you ever so much".

A customer who had sadly put petrol in his diesel time-worn Renault contacted us for a fuel drain at the Shell filling station in Llay. He thought it would be good to top up before proceeding on to the local caravan park but had put the wrong fuel in his car. "I put petrol rather than diesel which probably wasn't a good way to start to our holiday." It was certainly no trouble in the least for our technician to go and do the fuel drain.

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.
