Inevitably we received the phone call from a young lady on a company trip who had arrived at the Sainsburys petrol garage in Redruth and filled petrol in a diesel work's Austin Mini lease car. She was pretty affected it seemed, crying "I can't believe I have ruined the vehicle! I'm so familiar with putting unleaded in my petrol vehicle I had did not remember I was using a diesel!"

Just had a quality night's uninterrupted sleep! It was 7:00 in the morning on a rainy Bank Holiday Monday and we were en route to help an elder lovely lady after she had put petrol in her diesel spick and span Volvo S40 in Redruth. She informed us that she had left the filling station forecourt and was pulled up along a country road en route to visit her grandchildren. I got the location plugged in the TomTom and was on-scene in less than an hour. I arrived at the car and drained the wrong fuel out of the car.

Wrong Fuel in Car Redruth - Petrol in Diesel Car Redruth

I am certainly not overly hot for carrying out work Sundays, and last week was the same. I had only just come away from the wife and kids filled with a magnificent roast made for us by the better half, and I was on the way to help a guy because he put the wrong fuel in his brand new Volvo S90. He was somewhere in Redruth therefore I arrived there soon. Just as I drove up at the vehicle and got busy draining he said to me "Thank the Lord! I foolishly had my concentration on stuff and didn't ascertain I had put the wrong fuel in my petrol vehicle. Have I caused problems through starting it?" I revealed truth be told there should not be any kind of problems and that also I'd personally remove the wrong fuel quickly. It goes without saying that I drained the wrong fuel from the vehicle and filled it with the suitable fuel, and yet another happy motorist had the ability to continue on their ride without difficulty. He could hardly stop saying thanks to me, and that is exactly what can make operating on weekends in Cornwall just a little bit easier for me personally!

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.
