It was after ten pm on a Tuesday and although we were guaranteed a rainless night, it hadn't ceased raining! Mark and me were sitting going over the recent football results, ready for the 8th call of the day to arrive. In due time we had a phone call from a young lady on a company expedition who had gone to the Sainsburys petrol garage in Oswestry and filled the wrong fuel in a diesel yellow Peugeot Partner hire car by mistake. The unfortunate thing was fairly affected apparently, stating "I cannot believe that I've ruined the vehicle! I'm so familiar with filling up my petrol vehicle that I had didn't remember that I was running a diesel!" I asked her to take it easy and not to be concerned, and also that these things do happen. She was able to move the vehicle into a secure position and, since it was only a few minutes off from the office, we were able to get to the woman almost instantly. The bad fuel was removed so she was able to return to the hotel she was residing at. Although we got fairly drenched, it was all worth it to watch her drive off relaxed and much less anxious. One more job in Shropshire done well in my books!

A woman from Oswestry with a full car of little ones in her diesel clean white Suzuki Reno had put £42 of petrol at the service station. She contacted us crying and extremely upset as she had never wrong fuelled previously and didn't know what could happen to her vehicle because of it. We told her that everything should be ok and that she would be back up and running very quickly. When we arrived on scene she was still upset but as our fuel drainer began work on the fuel drain she calmed down because she discovered that something could be done and her vehicle wasn't ruined.

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.
