A driver from Nelson with her little ones in her diesel metallic green Bugatti Veyron had put £45 of petrol at the Shell filling station. She contacted us crying and genuinely distraught as she had never put petrol in a diesel and didn't know what might happen to her vehicle because of it. We reassured her that all should be alright and that she would be in action in no time at all. When we got there she was still upset but while our fuel drainer began work on the fuel drain she simmered down as she discovered that help was at hand and her vehicle wasn't unfixable. She quickly cheered up and was up and running saying, "I just can't believe my misfortune putting the wrong fuel in my car! Specifically with the youngsters on board."

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.
