Ahhh, that was a good night's uninterrupted sleep! 7:30 am on a bright Wednesday and we were on the way to help an elder woman who had put contaminated fuel in her diesel new Land Rover Range Rover Evoque in Rugby. I had been advised she had driven away from the petrol station and broken down along a backwater lane on route to see her godchildren. I punched her location in the TomTom and was with her inside an hour. I reached the location and extracted the contaminated fuel in the car car. While I was doing it she said to me, "Now I'm becoming fairly absent-minded in my senior years and didn't remember about the vehicle working with diesel because I'd just acquired it a short while ago after my previous one, which I'd owned for about 25 years, inevitably died on me". I completed the drain and she presented me a toffee and said thanks. What a lovely Warwickshire lady!

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.
