Wrong Fuel in Car Maldon - Maldon Misfuelling

Just had a fantastic night of sleep! It was 7:30 in the morning on a bright Sunday and we were on the way to assist an elder lovely lady who had put contaminated fuel in her diesel aunt's Citron Picasso in Maldon. I had been told she had left the filling station and pulled up along a rural road on the way to visit her grandchildren. I got her location plugged into the Satnav and got there inside an hour or so. I arrived at the stricken lady and drained the contaminated fuel out of the car. As I was doing the work she said to me, "I'm getting quite absent-minded in my senior years and did not remember about the car needing diesel seeing that I had only just purchased it several days ago after my former car, which I used for more than 25 years, eventually stopped working". I finished the job and she offered me a Murray mint and said thank you. What a pleasant Essex 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.
