It was about 6 pm on a Tuesday and while we were assured a rainless afternoon, it hadn't given up on raining! Ryan and I were resting there commenting on the recent tennis rankings, waiting around for the sixth fuel drain of the day to come in. Inevitably we got a call from a lovely women on a company expedition who had gone to the Tesco filling station in Paignton and put petrol in her diesel partner's MINI Cooper rental car in error. The poor thing was very distressed apparently, telling me "I cannot believe I have destroyed the vehicle! I'm so familiar with putting unleaded in my petrol car that I completely didn't remember that I was running a diesel!" I just told her to settle back and not to fret, also that such things unfortunately often happen. She managed to maneuver the car to a protected area and, as it was no more than a short distance off from our van, we could arrive at the lady right away. The bad fuel was taken out and she could get back to the hotel she was lodging in. Despite the fact that we got very wet, it was all rewarding to see her drive away relaxed and a lot less apprehensive. Yet another fuel drain in Devon well done in my mind!

This was what is called an unsociable hour to be awake. It was about dawn and hardly anyone was about. It had been quite dead thus far, and John and I were loafing looking at a number of old papers. It was a rare restful time in Devon. It was so peaceful that when the phone eventually rang I jumped with surprise! The motorist said: "I just ended my overnight shift and foolishly put the wrong fuel in my diesel filthy Fiat Ulysse". I instructed him to inform us where he was located and we hit the road, reaching him in Paignton an hour later. The wrong fuel was cleaned up and removed from the engine. He thanked us profusely for arriving so quickly. As we were returning home we found two ladies on the side of the street who seemed like they suffered a flat tyre. Accordingly we pulled up and helped them change it, much to their delight.

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.
