In due time we had the call from a girl on a business expedition who had pulled into the BP filling garage in Pickering and put the wrong fuel in a diesel worse for wear Nissan Leaf lease car. She was somewhat troubled by the sounds of it, saying "I still can't believe that I have wrecked the vehicle! I'm so familiar with putting unleaded in my petrol vehicle I had forgot I was driving a diesel!" We advised her to relax and not to worry, also that such things sadly often happen.

Wrong Fuel in Car Pickering - Pickering Misfuelling

What a good night of uninterrupted sleep! It was 7:00 am on a sunny Sunday and I was on the way to assist an older woman who had put petrol in her diesel uncle's Jeep Grand Cherokee in Pickering. She informed us that she had driven away from the petrol station and was broken down on a country lane along the way to see her godchildren. I punched her location into the TomTom and was on-scene inside an hour. I arrived at the stricken lady and drained the contaminated fuel in the car car. While I was doing it she told me, "I have been getting somewhat absent-minded in my senior years and forgot about the vehicle working with diesel because I had only just got it a few days ago right after my former one, which I'd used for about 25 years, eventually gave up the ghost". I finished the job and she presented me a toffee and thanked me for my work. What a pleasant North Yorkshire lady!

  • Reduced engine power
  • Motor dying, jumping and / or coughing
  • Issues starting the vehicle
  • Abnormal smoke

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.
