It was about eight pm on a Saturday and though we were guaranteed a rainless day, it hadn't given up on raining! Paul and I were relaxing there going over the rugby rankings, waiting for the seventh job to come in. Finally we received a phone call from a girl on a business expedition who had pulled into the Texaco filling station in Lynton and Lynmouth and filled petrol in her diesel buff Peugeot Bipper hire car by mistake. The poor thing was pretty distressed it seemed, telling me "I cannot believe that I've messed up the vehicle! I am so familiar with filling my petrol vehicle I had didn't remember I was operating a diesel!" We advised her to calm down and not to worry, also that such things unfortunately do happen. She had managed to move the vehicle into a safe spot and, as it was only a short distance off from where we were, we could reach the woman fairly quickly. The wrong fuel was taken out and she could get back to the motel she was residing at. Despite the fact that we got extremely soaked, it was all worth the time seeing her drive off contented and much less stressed. Yet another fuel drain in Devon well done in my mind!

I had a wonderful afternoon hiking on the weekend and felt cheerful with myself the next morning as I was en route to assist a young couple away in Lynton and Lynmouth. They'd pulled over after inserting the wrong fuel in their brand new Renault Traffic, and were around half an hour away. I showed up at their position and smirked while I heard to the wife telling off her man for turning out to be so stupid. "Precisely how could you conceivably find a way to put the wrong fuel in the vehicle?" she asked him. I tried to clarify that this takes place regularly in Devon and that it is nothing at all to be anxious about, even so he still had an ear bashing by his better half. I felt sorry for the boy. In any case, I removed all the contaminated fuel, flushed the motor and filled it up with the proper fuel. As they drove away I waved good-bye and pondered on what her indoors would tell me if perhaps I did the exact same thing... I would under no circumstances hear the end of it!

A driver from Lynton and Lynmouth with her youngsters in her diesel aunt's Mazda626 had put £30 of petrol at the station. She contacted us weeping and genuinely distraught as she had never put petrol in a diesel car and didn't know what could happen to her car because of it. We told her that all would be alright and that she would be back ready to go very quickly. When we arrived on scene she was still upset but as our fuel drainer started work on the fuel drain she simmered down because she recognised that something could be done and her car wasn't unfixable.

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.
