It was before eight pm on a Saturday and despite the fact that we were guaranteed a dry and fresh evening, it had not ceased pouring! Brian and I were seated there discussing the football results, waiting for the sixth job that day to come in. Before long we got the call from a lovely woman on a company excursion who had gone to the Texaco filling station in Saltash and put the wrong fuel in a diesel cyan Peugeot 306 rental car by mistake. The poor thing was quite irritated apparently, telling me "I can not believe I have ruined the vehicle! I'm just so used to filling up my petrol vehicle that I totally did not remember that I was using a diesel!" We told her to relax and not to fret, and that things like this unfortunately can happen. She was able to get the vehicle to a protected space and, since it was no more than a short distance off from where we were, we were able to reach her fairly quickly. The bad fuel was extracted so she could once again go back to the Premier Inn she was living at. Despite the fact we got fairly soaked, it was all worth it seeing her drive away calm and less stressed. A misfuel correction in Cornwall done well in my mind!

Wrong Fuel in Car Saltash - Petrol in Diesel Car Saltash

I am certainly not so inclined to doing the job on Sundays, and a couple weeks ago was the same. I'd just left the family after a superb Sunday roast made for me by the wife, and I was off to assist a man who had put the wrong petrol in his burgundy red Kia Sephia. He was stationed in Saltash so I was with him before long. Just as I pulled up behind the car and got out he explained to me "Praise the Almighty! I foolishly had my attention on other considerations and did not perceive I have put diesel in my petrol car. I need to know if I caused some harm because of running it?" I revealed that generally there shouldn't be problems and that I'd get the contaminated fuel drained immediately for him. Needless to say I got the fuel drained from the vehicle and filled it with some correct fuel, and then yet another contented motorist could continue his ride with no difficulty. He did not stop thanking me, and that is exactly what helps make carrying out work on weekends in Cornwall just a little bit easier for me personally!

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.
