It was just after six pm on a Friday and while we were guaranteed a dry and fresh afternoon, it had not ceased pouring! James and I were sitting talking about the recent sports rankings, prepared for the seventh fuel drain to come in. Finally we got the phone call from a lovely woman on a company excursion who had arrived at the Shell filling station in Soho and filled petrol in her diesel spotless Peugeot 505 hire car by mistake. The poor lady was somewhat distressed it seemed, telling me "I simply can't believe that I've ruined the car! I am so used to filling up my petrol vehicle I totally forgot that I was running a diesel!" I just asked her to calm down and not to worry, plus that things like this unfortunately often happen. She managed to relocate the vehicle into a protected spot and, seeing as it was just a short distance from us, we were able to find the lady fairly quickly. The wrong fuel was drained and she could return to the Premier Inn she was living in. Despite the fact we got extremely wet, it was all worthwhile to watch her drive away relaxed and less stressed. A job in Birmingham well done in my mind!

I had a perfect day hiking during my holiday and felt contented the following working day as I set off to help a young family vacationing in Soho. They had conked out after inserting petrol into their old Audi A5, and the car was close to half an hour away. I got there at their location and laughed while I listened to the gal telling her spouse off for actually being so daft. "Just how could you actually manage to put the wrong fuel in the vehicle?" she asked him. I wanted to tell her that this situation comes to pass continuously in Birmingham and that it's in reality nothing to fret about, but he all the same had an ear bashing. I felt sorry for the lad. Anyway, I drained out the wrong fuel, gave the engine a flush and gave it some correct fuel. Watching while they drove away I waved hasta la vista and thought about what my missus would do to me if ever I made the same blunder... I'd personally never live it down!

Regardless of whether you happen to be in a state of the art vehicle or an older style, we have the gear and expertise to correct the problem right there. We take out all the incorrect fuel, handle any problems created as a result of the misfueling, and get you going.

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.
