It was close to ten pm on a Friday and while we were guaranteed a rainless day, it had not given up on raining! Paul and I were seated going over the recent footy rankings, waiting around for the sixth telephone call to come in. In due time we received the call from a lovely women on a business excursion who had gone to the Sainsburys filling garage in Nailsea and filled petrol in her diesel company's Kia Sedona lease car. The poor thing was pretty distressed it seemed, crying "I simply can't believe I have destroyed the car! I am so accustomed to filling my petrol vehicle I totally didn't remember I was using a diesel!" We told her to calm down and not to worry, plus that these things sadly can happen. She had managed to move the car to a safe spot and, seeing as it was only a few miles from the office, we could arrive at the woman without delay. The incorrect fuel was removed and she could go home to the Premier Inn she was residing in. Even though we got extremely wet, it was all worth it to see her drive away satisfied and less anxious. Another job in Somerset done well in my opinion!

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.
