Wrong Fuel in Car Machen - Machen Misfuelling

What a fantastic night's sleep! 7:30 on a warm Tuesday and I was on my way to help an elder sweetheart after she put the wrong fuel in her diesel cyan Peugeot 3008 in Machen. I had been told she had left the filling station forecourt and stranded along a backwater road along the way to pay a visit to her godchildren. I popped the location in the Satnav and arrived within 60 minutes. I arrived at the location and drained the wrong fuel from the vehicle. Whilst I was doing the work she explained, "I'm becoming somewhat absent-minded in my senior years and forgot about the vehicle using diesel because I'd only acquired it several days ago when my previous car, which I had for in excess of twenty years, inevitably died on me". I got the drain completed and she gifted me a Murray mint and thanked me for my hard work. What a delightful Caerphilly lady!

Wrong Fuel Assist Machen - Wrong Fuel in Car Machen

I'd had a wonderful day cycling during my day off and felt delighted the following day as I headed out to assist a new couple away in Machen. They conked out after inserting diesel into their immaculate Ford, and they were about an hour away. I showed up at their location and smirked to myself as I listened to the wife telling her hubby off for being so foolish. "Exactly how could you possibly be able to fill up by using the wrong fuel?" she demanded of him. I wanted to tell her that this situation goes on on daily basis in Caerphilly and that it's in reality absolutely nothing to be anxious about, however he still got his ear bent. Unfortunate chap. Anyways, I extracted all the contaminated fuel, flushed the motor and gave it some appropriate fuel. Watching them drive away I shouted bon voyage and wondered what her indoors would tell me if I did the same thing... I would personally never ever hear the end of it!

Wrong Fuel in Car Machen - Petrol in Diesel Car Machen

Now I'm not ever that excited about running on Sundays, and a couple weeks ago was the same. I had just come away from the wife and kids after eating a lovely lunch made for me by the missus, and I was on the way to help a fellow who had put the incorrect fuel in his dilapidated Volkswagen Golf III. He was located in Machen and so I arrived on scene almost immediately. As I drove up at the rear of the vehicle and got out he said to me "Praise God! I had my concentration on other considerations and did not ascertain I've put the wrong fuel in my petrol vehicle. I need to know if I brought on any problems as a result of starting it?" I stated that generally there should not be any damage and that also I'd get the wrong fuel drained as soon as possible. Naturally I got the contaminated fuel drained from the car and filled it with the correct fuel, and another content motorist could continue their journey without any fuss. He couldn't stop saying thanks to me, and that can make working on Sundays in Caerphilly that little less painful to me!

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.
