Wrong Fuel in Car Oundle - Oundle Misfuelling

Just had a quality night of sleep! It was 7:00 in the morning on a gloomy Sunday and we were off to assist an older lady who had put petrol in her diesel well-used Toyota RAV4 in Oundle. She informed us that she drove away from the petrol station forecourt and stranded on a backwater road en route to see her family. I punched her location into the TomTom and was with her inside an hour. I got to the stricken lady and drained the wrong fuel out of the car. As I was doing the work she said to me, "I am getting quite absent-minded in my senior years and forgot about the vehicle working with diesel because I'd only just bought it a week ago because my former one, which I had had for more than twenty five years, eventually died". I finished the job and she gave me a toffee and said thanks. What a pleasant Northamptonshire lady!

We completed a wrong fuel removal job outside a beautiful house in Oundle a few weeks ago. "I had put unleaded in my diesel car and was able to very nearly arrive at home when my car stopped." Our specialist went out, regardless that it was quite late at night, and performed a full fuel drain and purge on the sombre grey Mercedes-Benz R-Class .

This was certainly the graveyard shift. It was around dawn and almost noone was about. It had become pretty uneventful up to now, and me and Paul were sitting around looking at a few old magazines. This was an unusual tranquil time in Northamptonshire. It was so peaceful that when the phone inevitably rang I leaped with surprise! The voice explained: "I have just concluded my overnight shift and stupidly put the wrong fuel in my gorgeous Cadillac Fleetwood by mistake". We asked him to let us know where the car was located and we hit the road, ending up in Oundle no more than an hour later. The wrong fuel was cleaned up and removed from the motor and he said thanks a lot for arriving so rapidly. While we were heading back to the office we noticed two young ladies at the side of the street who seemed like they had a flat tyre. So we stopped to change it, much to their elation.

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.
