It was close to six pm on a Thursday and despite the fact that we were promised a dry day, it hadn't given up on raining! Brian and I were seated going over the weekend's sports results, at the ready for the 6th fuel drain to arrive. Inevitably we got the call from a woman on a business expedition who had gone to the Shell petrol garage in Maryport and put the wrong fuel in a diesel baby blue Peugeot 309 hire car. The poor lady was pretty agitated apparently, saying "I still cannot believe that I have destroyed the car! I am just so familiar with putting petrol in my petrol car that I had did not remember that I was driving a diesel!" I advised her to take it easy and not to be concerned, and also that things like this regrettably can happen.

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.
