It was around six pm on a Monday and even though we were assured a dry and fresh day, it hadn't given up on raining! Brian and I were relaxing there discussing the recent footy rankings, at the ready for the next telephone call that day to come in. Inevitably we received a call from a lovely women on a business expedition who had gone to the Sainsburys filling garage in Richmond and filled petrol in a diesel light green Cadillac Catera rental car in error. She was quite agitated apparently, stating "I cannot believe I've messed up the car! I am so used to filling up my petrol vehicle I completely didn't remember I was running a diesel!" We asked her to take it easy and not to fret, and that these things unfortunately do happen. She managed to maneuver the vehicle to a safe spot and, seeing as it was just a few minutes off from where we were, we could reach the customer rather quickly. The wrong fuel was drained and she was able to go home to the Premier Inn she was lodging at.

Wrong Fuel in Car Richmond - Petrol in Diesel Car Richmond

We fairly recently had a phone call from a motorist who had put the wrong fuel in his well worn Hyundai HED-5 in Richmond. He had broken down on the road. "After adding petrol in my diesel car I didn't realize the dilemma till I stopped working. You removed the wrong fuel from my car and had it working . I was happy because of both your speed and your prices". Naturally we appeared punctually and flushed the engine after flushing all the wrong fuel from the diesel tank. The customer was pleased as punch by the time we were done and he went off satisfied and content.

A motorist who had put the wrong fuel in his diesel father's Audi S4 called us for assistance at the BP filling station in Richmond. He thought it would be good to top up before continuing on to the nearby recreation park . "I put unleaded rather than diesel and it wasn't a good way to begin to our getaway."

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.
