It was after five pm on a Friday and though we were promised a rainless afternoon, it had not stopped pouring! Ryan and me were sitting there discussing the weekend's golf rankings, at the ready for the 8th telephone call for the day to come in. In due time we got the phone call from a woman on a company trip who had arrived at the Shell filling garage in South Petherton and put the wrong fuel in a diesel burgundy red Land Rover Defender 90 rental car. The poor thing was rather agitated apparently, telling me "I simply cannot believe that I have destroyed the vehicle! I am just so used to filling my petrol vehicle I had forgot I was operating a diesel!" I asked her to relax and not to worry, also that these things regrettably do happen. She was able to get the car to a protected position and, as it was just a few minutes from the office, we were able to get to the customer rather quickly. The contaminated fuel was taken out and she could return to the Premier Inn she was residing 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.
