It was around 5 pm on a Saturday and though we were guaranteed a rainless night, it hadn't stopped pouring down rain! James and me were sitting talking over the golf rankings, prepared for the sixth job that day to arrive. Eventually we got a call from a girl on a company expedition who had gone to the Texaco petrol station in Maidenhead and filled petrol in a diesel clean Vauxhall Vivaro rental car in error. She was very troubled by the sounds of it, stating "I cannot believe I have ruined the car! I'm so familiar with filling up my petrol vehicle I had didn't remember I was using a diesel!" I just instructed her to calm down and not to worry, also that such things unfortunately happen. She managed to move the vehicle into a protected spot and, seeing that it was no more than a few minutes away from the office, we could reach the customer right away. The incorrect fuel was removed and she was able to return to the Travelodge she was living in.

Wrong Fuel in Car Maidenhead - Maidenhead Misfuelling

Ahhh, that was a great night of sleep! 7:00 on a rainy Sunday and I was on my way to help an old lovely lady after she put petrol in her diesel dilapidated Volvo940 in Maidenhead. I had been told she had driven away from the petrol station and broken down in a backwater road along the way to visit her grandchildren. I plugged the location straight into the TomTom and was with her within 60 minutes. I reached the location and removed the contaminated fuel from the car. Whilst I was doing the drain she said, "I'm getting quite absent-minded in my old age and didn't remember about the car needing diesel as I'd only got it a few days ago right after my old car, which I had had for more than twenty five years, finally died". I completed the job and she gave me a Murray mint and thanked me for my efforts. What a lovely Berkshire woman!

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.
