It was close to eight pm on a Thursday and though we were assured a dry night, it had not stopped raining! Mark and I were resting going over the recent sports, at the ready for the 6th call of the day to come in. In due time we had a call from a lady on a business trip who had arrived at the BP petrol station in Selkirk and put the wrong fuel in her diesel beloved BMW Z8 hire car by mistake. She was fairly troubled it seemed, stating "I still cannot believe that I've ruined the vehicle! I'm so used to filling my petrol vehicle I completely forgot that I was operating a diesel!" I just asked her to relax and not to worry, plus that things like this happen. She was able to relocate the vehicle to a protected position and, because it was no more than a few minutes away from where we were, we could find the lady almost instantly. The incorrect fuel was cleaned up and removed so she was able to return to the Premier Inn she was living in.

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.
