It truly was what is called an unsociable time to be on the road. It was roughly dawn and noone was stirring. It had been quite dead up to now, and me and Paul were sitting looking at a couple of old magazines. This was an uncommon tranquil moment in Essex. It was so quiet that the moment the phone eventually rang it made me jump! The person explained: "I have finished my night shift and foolishly poured the wrong fuel in my canary yellow Chevrolet Caprice". I instructed him to tell us where the vehicle was located and we hit the road, reaching him in Rayleigh no more than an hour later. The wrong fuel was cleaned up and removed from the car. He thanked us profusely for arriving so rapidly. As we were heading back home we spotted two young ladies at the side of the highway who seemed to have a puncture.

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.
