Now I'm not actually too inclined to carrying out work on Sundays, and 2 weeks ago was no different. I'd only just come away from home after a wonderful roast cooked for me by the wife, and I was on the way to deal with a guy because he filled the incorrect fuel in his new-shape Mercedes-Benz M-Class. He was stationed in Petworth therefore it wasn't long before I reached him. Just as I pulled up right behind the car and got out he explained to me "Thank God! I stupidly had my attention on other stuff and failed to ascertain I have put the wrong fuel in my petrol car. Is it possible I inflicted any kind of damage as a result of driving it?" I stated that there probably should not be problems and that I would get the contaminated fuel drained at once for him. Obviously I got the fuel drained from the car and put in some appropriate fuel, and then another satisfied motorist had the ability to carry on with their journey with no bother. The gentleman did not stop saying thanks to me, and that tends to make working on weekends in West Sussex a tiny bit less painful for me personally!

This was certainly what is called an unsociable time to be awake. It was close to sunrise and almost noone was around. It was rather uneventful so far, and Ryan and I were sitting about perusing a few old newspapers. It was a rare calm hour in West Sussex. Actually it was that calm that when the phone inevitably rang I leaped with surprise! The motorist stated: "I have just finished my evening shift and foolishly put the wrong fuel in the grey BMW Z3". I instructed him to let us know exactly where he was and we headed out, arriving in Petworth half an hour later. The incorrect fuel was extracted from the vehicle. He thanked us profusely for coming so quickly. While we were heading back to base we saw two young ladies at the edge of the highway who seemed like they suffered a flat tyre. Obviously we pulled up and helped them change it, 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.
