I had appreciated a fantastic evening fishing on the weekend and was feeling pleased with myself the next working day as I headed out to aid a new family vacationing in Southampton. They had pulled over after putting the wrong fuel in their beautiful BMW Z4, and the car was approximately half an hour's drive away. I arrived at their car and smirked to myself while I heard to the girl berating her hubby for being so confused. "Exactly how could you possibly be able to fill up with the wrong fuel?" she said to him. I attempted to clarify that this situation occurs quite frequently in Hampshire and that it's nothing to be concerned about, even so he all the same had his ear bent. Unfortunate lad. Anyway, I removed all the contaminated fuel, flushed the motor and gave it some proper fuel. While watching them drive down the road I mouthed goodbye and pondered on what my missus would tell me if perhaps I did the same thing... I'd personally under no circumstances live it down!

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.
