It was just before five pm on a Saturday and even though we were guaranteed a dry afternoon, it hadn't stopped pouring! James and me were sitting there talking about the football results, at the ready for the sixth call of the day to come in. Before long we got the call from a lovely woman on a business expedition who had arrived at the Shell filling garage in Rothwell and filled petrol in a diesel bright white Isuzu i-Series rental car. The poor thing was very troubled apparently, saying "I simply cannot believe I have ruined the car! I am just so accustomed to filling my petrol car I had forgot that I was driving a diesel!" I just asked her to calm down and not to fret, and that these things do happen.

Wrong Fuel in Car Rothwell - Rothwell Misfuelling

Ahhh, that was a quality night's uninterrupted sleep! 7:00 on a bright Tuesday and I was on the way to assist an older lady after she put the wrong fuel in her diesel worn-out Subaru Impreza in Rothwell. I had been told she had left the filling station and broken down in a rural road on route to see her godchildren. I punched her location straight into the Satnav and arrived inside 60 minutes. I arrived at the vehicle and removed the wrong fuel out of the vehicle. As I was doing the work she said, "I am getting rather absent-minded in my old age and forgot about the car working with diesel as I had only just purchased it a couple of days back after my old car, which I had used for over 25 years, eventually gave up the ghost". I completed the job and she offered me a Murray mint and said thanks a lot. Such a lovely Northamptonshire lady!

I enjoyed a wonderful day cycling during the weekend and was feeling contented with myself the following working day as I headed out to assist a young family who were on vacation in Rothwell. They had stopped after filling the wrong fuel into their well-used Audi R8, and were roughly an hour away. I showed up at their car and smirked to myself while I listened to the girl telling her man off for turning out to be so daft. "Just how could you even be able to fill up using the wrong fuel?" she told him. I attempted to tell her that this goes on quite frequently in Northamptonshire and that it is nothing to worry about, nonetheless he yet still got his ear bent. Unlucky guy. Anyways, I drained out all the wrong fuel, flushed the engine and gave them some proper fuel. Watching them drive away I waved so long and pondered on what her indoors would ask me if perhaps I made the same mistake... I would never hear the end of it!

Wrong Fuel in Car Rothwell - Petrol in Diesel Car Rothwell

Now I am not actually overly excited about carrying out work on Sundays, and last week was no different. I had only just left the family filled with a tasty dinner prepared by the wife, and I was off to deal with a fellow because he put the incorrect fuel in his precious Honda CR-Z. He was stationed in Rothwell and so I arrived on scene very quickly. As I arrived behind the car and got out he explained to me "Thank God! I stupidly had my mind on other things and did not perceive I had put diesel in my petrol vehicle. Have I created any kind of problems through running it?" I determined that there shouldn't be harm and that also I would get the fuel drained right away for him. Naturally I got the wrong fuel drained from the car and filled it with the correct fuel, and so one more contented client was able to carry on with his journey without any subsequent hassle. The man could hardly stop saying thanks to me, and this is actually what can make working on weekends in Northamptonshire just a small bit better in my opinion!

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.
