It was close to 8 pm on a Friday and despite the fact that we were guaranteed a dry and fresh evening, it had not stopped raining! Dan and I were relaxing there going over the golf results, waiting around for the sixth call of the day to arrive. Eventually we got a call from a woman on a business trip who had gone to the Tesco filling station in Southwold and filled petrol in her diesel metallic green VW Golf lease car. She was very agitated apparently, crying "I can not believe I have wrecked the vehicle! I am so familiar with filling my petrol vehicle that I completely didn't remember I was operating a diesel!" We advised her to calm down and not to fret, also that such things sadly can happen. She managed to move the vehicle into a protected spot and, seeing as it was no more than a few miles from our van, we were able to arrive at her swiftly. The bad fuel was drained so she was able to go home to the Travelodge she was living at. Despite the fact that we got really soaked, it was all rewarding to watch her drive away contented and not so stressed. Yet another job in Suffolk well done in my mind!

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.
