Wrong Fuel Assist Shrewsbury - Wrong Fuel in Car Shrewsbury

I had appreciated a fantastic day hiking during my holiday and felt cheerful with myself the next day as I set off to help a young couple away in Shrewsbury. They'd conked out after putting the wrong fuel into their trusty Seat Alhumbra, and they were close to an hour away. I got there at their car and laughed while I listened to the lady telling her husband off for turning out to be so daft. "Exactly how could you conceivably be able to put the wrong fuel in the vehicle?" she demanded of him. I tried to tell her that this occurs on a regular basis in Shropshire and that it's truly nothing to stress about, even so he in spite of everything had an ear bashing by his better half. I felt sorry for the boy. Anyway, I extracted the wrong fuel, gave the engine a flush and gave them some proper fuel. As they drove off I mouthed so long and wondered what her indoors would do to me if perhaps I made the very same error... I would never ever hear the end of it!

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.
