Wrong Fuel in Car Salcombe - Salcombe Misfuelling

What a good night's sleep! 7:00 in the morning on a gloomy Monday and we were en route to assist an older lady who had put contaminated fuel in her diesel metallic silver Audi Q7 in Salcombe. I had been advised she had left the filling station and pulled up along a backwater road en route to pay a visit to her godchildren. I popped her location in the Satnav and was on-scene within an hour. I turned up at the destination and drained the wrong fuel out of the vehicle. As I was doing the drain she said to me, "I have been getting relatively forgetful in my old age and did not remember about the vehicle needing diesel as I'd just bought it a couple of days back when my other one, which I'd owned for over twenty years, inevitably died". I got the drain done and she offered me a Murray mint and thanked me for my efforts. Such a lovely Devon woman!

Wrong Fuel Assist Salcombe - Wrong Fuel in Car Salcombe

I had appreciated a terrific evening cycling on the weekend and felt satisfied the next day as I set out to aid a young family holidaying in Salcombe. They broken down after filling the wrong fuel in their winter grey Mitsubishi Excel, and the car was close to half an hour away. I arrived at their position and smiled to myself as I heard to the gal telling her hubby off for being so foolish. "Exactly how could you actually find a way to put the wrong fuel in the car?" she demanded of him. I wanted to clarify that this kind of thing goes on everyday in Devon and that it is nothing to worry about, but he in spite of everything got an earful by his better half. Poor guy. At any rate, I removed all the polluted fuel, gave the motor a flush and filled it up with the appropriate fuel. While watching them drive off I waved hasta la vista and thought about what my missus would say to me in the event that I made the same blunder... I would never ever hear the end of it!

Wrong Fuel in Car Salcombe - Petrol in Diesel Car Salcombe

We a few weeks ago had a phone call from a businessman who put the incorrect fuel in his dark green BMW X6 in Salcombe. He had come to a stand-still on the road. "After putting unleaded in my diesel car I didn't realize the issue until I stopped working. You took the wrong fuel from my car and had it running once again. I was happy by both your call-out time and your pricing". As you can imagine we were on-scene promptly and flushed the engine after flushing all the wrong fuel from the diesel tank. On arrival the engineer said the motorist was raging, but was grinning his face off when we finished.

We assured her that the vehicle would be ok and that she would be back on the road in no time at all.

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.
