It was about six pm on a Monday and though we were guaranteed a dry afternoon, it hadn't given up on raining! Brian and I were sitting talking over the recent football results, at the ready for the sixth telephone call that day to arrive. Inevitably we got a call from a lovely woman on a business excursion who had arrived at the Texaco filling garage in Saffron Walden and put petrol in her diesel rugged Volvo V50 rental car. The poor lady was very irritated by the sounds of it, telling me "I cannot believe that I've destroyed the car! I am so accustomed to filling my petrol car I totally did not remember that I was using a diesel!" I just asked her to calm down and not to be concerned, and also that these things unfortunately often happen. She was able to relocate the vehicle into a secure space and, as it was only a few minutes from our van, we were able to get to the woman almost instantly. The incorrect fuel was drained and she could get back to the hotel she was lodging in.

Just had a quality night of sleep! It was 7:00 on a gloomy Tuesday and we were on my way to assist an elder sweetheart who had put petrol in her diesel mint green Suzuki Reno in Saffron Walden.

Wrong Fuel in Car Saffron Walden - Petrol in Diesel Car Saffron Walden

I am not actually very inclined to running on Sundays, and a couple weeks ago was no different. I had just departed home after having a tasty roast prepared for me by the better half, and I was on my way to deal with a fellow after he had put the wrong petrol in his dilapidated Mazda. He was only in Saffron Walden thus I arrived on scene rapidly. As I pulled up at the vehicle and stepped out he told me "Thank the Almighty! I had my thoughts on other things and didn't ascertain I've put the wrong fuel in my petrol vehicle. I need to know if I brought about any problems by starting it?" I determined truth be told there probably should not be any kind of problems and also I'd drain the contaminated fuel at once. Needless to say I got the fuel drained from the car and put in some suitable fuel, and so another delighted customer could continue their travelling with no bother. He could hardly stop thanking me, and this is actually what makes working on weekends in Essex that little bit less painful 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.
