Wrong Fuel in Car Millom - Petrol in Diesel Car Millom

I am not actually very interested in doing the job on Sundays, and 2 weeks ago was the same. I'd only just left the family after having a fantastic roast cooked for me by the better half, and I was en route to help a fellow who filled the incorrect petrol in his rust red Toyota Prius. He was located in Millom so I arrived on scene almost immediately. Just as I arrived at the rear of the vehicle and got out he told me "Praise the Almighty! I stupidly had my attention on stuff and did not grasp that I've put the wrong fuel in my petrol car. Is it possible I brought about problems simply by driving it?" I said that there probably should not be any kind of problems and that also I'd personally drain the fuel as soon as possible for him. It goes without saying that I got the contaminated fuel drained from the vehicle and put in some suitable fuel, and then yet another content motorist could carry on with his trip without the hassle. The gentleman could not stop saying thanks to me, and this makes operating on Sundays in Cumbria just a tiny bit easier for me personally!

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.
