It was after five pm on a Wednesday and although we were promised a dry and fresh evening, it hadn't stopped pouring down rain! Mark and me were relaxing there going over the recent footy, ready for the 8th telephone call for the day to come in. Inevitably we got a phone call from a lovely women on a business expedition who had gone to the Shell petrol station in Porthleven and put petrol in her diesel cyan Land Rover Freelander II hire car. The unfortunate thing was quite irritated it seemed, stating "I can not believe that I've wrecked the car! I am just so familiar with putting unleaded in my petrol car that I totally did not remember I was running a diesel!" I just instructed her to calm down and not to worry, also that these things regrettably do happen. She was able to move the vehicle into a protected space and, since it was only a few minutes away from where we were, we could arrive at her rather quickly. The wrong fuel was taken out so she was able to once again go back to the motel she was residing at.

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.
