Wrong Fuel in Car Sedbergh - Petrol in Diesel Car Sedbergh

Now I am not necessarily overly interested in running on Sundays, and a week ago was no different. I had only just left the family after a fantastic Sunday roast prepared for me by the missus, and I was on the way to help a gentleman because he put the wrong fuel in his clean Mercedes-Benz CL-Class. He was only in Sedbergh and so I arrived there very quickly. Just as I drove up at the rear of the vehicle and got out he said to me "Praise the Almighty! I stupidly had my attention on something else and did not grasp that I've put the wrong fuel in my petrol vehicle. Have I inflicted any harm by starting it?" I said that truth be told there probably should not be harm and also I would personally get the wrong fuel drained as soon as possible. As expected I got the fuel drained from the vehicle and put in the correct fuel, and so another contented customer was able to continue their trip without any subsequent fuss. The gentleman could hardly stop saying thanks to me, and that is what tends to make operating on weekends in Cumbria just a tiny bit better to me!

A woman from Sedbergh with a full car of kids in her diesel classic Saab 9-3 had filled her car with £42 of petrol at the Tesco filling station. She called us sobbing and very upset as she had never put petrol in a diesel car previously and did not know what would happen to her vehicle . We assured her that everything should be fine and that she would be up and running very quickly. When we arrived on scene she was visible upset but while our technician got to work on the fuel drain she simmered down as she noticed that something could be done and her car wasn't wrecked. She soon cheered up and was up and running saying, "I can't believe my luck putting petrol in my diesel vehicle! Particularly with the youngsters on board."

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.
