It was just after 7 pm on a Saturday and although we were promised a dry afternoon, it hadn't ceased pouring down rain! Ryan and I were sitting commenting on the recent rugby, waiting around for the seventh call that day to come in. In due time we received a call from a lovely women on a business trip who had arrived at the Tesco petrol station in Rhyl and filled the wrong fuel in a diesel dark red Citron DS5 rental in error. The unfortunate lady was quite agitated apparently, crying "I simply cannot believe that I have wrecked the car! I am just so used to filling my petrol car that I completely didn't remember I was operating a diesel!" We told her to take it easy and not to fret, and also that these things unfortunately can happen. She had managed to relocate the vehicle to a safe area and, since it was only a few miles away from our van, we were able to get to the lady rather quickly. The bad fuel was taken out and she could return to the motel she was lodging in. Although we got really drenched, it was all worth it to see her drive off calm and a lot less worried. Yet another job in Denbighshire well done in my books!

A lady from Rhyl with a full car of children in her diesel son's Mazda had filled her car with £42 of petrol at the Tesco station. She called us sobbing and very worried as she had never put petrol in a diesel before and did not know what might happen to her car in doing so. We told her that the vehicle would be ok and that she would be in action very quickly. When we arrived on scene she was still upset but as our engineer got to work on the fuel drain she calmed down since she saw that help was at hand and her car wasn't ruined.

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.
