I appreciated a wonderful afternoon golfing during my day off and was feeling satisfied with myself the next working day as I was on the way to help a young family who were away in Short Heath. They'd pulled over after filling the wrong fuel in their apricot Ford Transit Connect, and the car was approximately an hour away. I arrived at their location and laughed as I heard to the girl berating her man for turning out to be so silly. "Just how could you possibly manage to fill the vehicle up by using the wrong fuel?" she asked him. I wanted to clarify that this problem takes place frequently in Birmingham and that it is absolutely nothing to be concerned about, and yet he yet still had his ear bent by his better half. I felt sorry for the guy. At any rate, I extracted the polluted fuel, gave the fuel system a flush and gave it some right fuel. As they drove down the road I waved goodbye and wondered what my wife would ask me if ever I made the same mistake... I would personally under no circumstances hear the end of it!

Wrong Fuel in Car Short Heath - Petrol in Diesel Car Short Heath

We not too long ago received a call from a man who had put the wrong fuel in his mum's VW Tiguan in Short Heath. He had come to a stand-still on the street. "I was amazed at how speedy you people were in sending an engineer out to assist me when I unleaded in my diesel car. Thank you ever so much". Of course we got there rapidly and flushed the engine after draining all of the petrol from the diesel tank. On arrival our fuel drainer said the customer was fuming, but was satisfied when we finished.

This really was what we call an unsociable time to be on the road. It was roughly dawn and noone was stirring. It had been fairly quiet thus far, and John and I were loafing about looking at some old newspapers. It was an uncommon calm hour in Birmingham. It was in fact so tranquil that the instant my mobile ultimately rang it made me start! The person on the phone told me: "I've concluded my evening shift and foolishly put petrol in my diesel dirty red Suzuki Kizashi". We instructed him to inform us exactly where he was located and we set off, ending up in Short Heath not as much as an hour or so later. The contaminated fuel was cleared from the motor. He thanked us profusely for getting there so fast. As we were coming back home we found two ladies at the edge of the street who looked like they had a flat tyre. So we stopped and helped them change it, to their elation.

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.
