Wrong Fuel Doctor Pontefract - Fuel Rescue Pontefract

A young lady from Pontefract with her kids in her diesel abused Nissan Pathfinder had put £42 of petrol at the petrol station. She contacted us sobbing and extremely worried as she had never put petrol in a diesel previously and did not know what would happen to her car in doing so. We reassured her that everything would be okay and that she would be back up and running soon. When we got there she was still upset but as our engineer started work on the fuel drain she simmered down since she recognised that something could be done and her vehicle wasn't wrecked. She quickly brightened up and was up and running saying, "I really can't believe my misfortune putting petrol in my diesel vehicle! Especially with the children on board."

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.
