It was about 10 pm on a Thursday and although we were promised a rainless afternoon, it had not ceased raining! Dan and I were sitting there discussing the weekend's golf results, ready for the seventh fuel drain to come in. Before long we received the phone call from a young lady on a company trip who had arrived at the Sainsburys filling station in Mirfield and filled the wrong fuel in her diesel daughter's VW Jetta rental car in error. She was pretty troubled apparently, saying "I cannot believe I have messed up the car! I'm so familiar with putting petrol in my petrol vehicle I had forgot I was running a diesel!" I just advised her to relax and not to worry, and also that such things unfortunately happen. She was able to move the vehicle into a secure space and, because it was only a few minutes from where we were, we could find the woman without delay. The bad fuel was drained and she was able to get back to the motel she was residing in. Despite the fact we got fairly drenched, it was all worth the effort seeing her drive off satisfied and much less concerned. Another fuel drain in West Yorkshire well done in my mind!

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.
