Now I'm not actually so interested in running on Sundays, and the other day was no different. I'd only just come away from the family after having a magnificent dinner cooked for me by the missus, and I was en route to assist a fellow after he put the incorrect petrol in his light blue Jeep Grand Cherokee. He was situated in Porthcawl hence it wasn't long before I reached him. As I pulled up right behind the car and started work he explained to me "Thank God! I incredibly had my attention on stuff and didn't grasp that I have put the wrong fuel in my petrol car. Is it likely I brought on any kind of damage simply by running it?" I stated that generally there should not be any kind of harm and that I would get the fuel drained as quickly as possible for him. As expected I drained the fuel from the car and put in some correct fuel, and so yet another content client could carry on with his ride without any subsequent fuss. He could hardly stop thanking me, and this is what can make carrying out work on Sundays in Bridgend a little easier for me!

This really was what is called the night shift. It was around sunrise and noone was stirring. It was fairly quiet thus far, and me and Mark were sitting reading through a couple of old newspapers. That was an uncommon calm time in Bridgend. It was in fact that relaxing that the moment the phone finally rang it made me start! The person said: "I have ended my night shift and incredibly poured petrol in my diesel dirty red Mitsubishi L300 in error". I instructed him to let us know just where he was and we headed out, ending up in Porthcawl half an hour later. The incorrect fuel was cleared from the motor and he thanked us for coming so quickly. While we were returning to base we saw two young women at the side of the road who appeared to have a flat. Obviously we got out 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.
