It was about five pm on a Tuesday and though we were promised a rainless evening, it hadn't given up on pouring down rain! Paul and me were relaxing there talking over the weekend's rugby, waiting around for the 8th job of the day to arrive. Eventually we got a call from a woman on a company excursion who had arrived at the Texaco filling garage in St Ives and filled petrol in her diesel time-worn Cadillac STS-V rental car in error. The poor lady was quite agitated it seemed, stating "I still can't believe I have destroyed the car! I am so used to filling my petrol car that I completely didn't remember that I was driving a diesel!" We told her to relax and not to be concerned, and that things like this happen. She was able to get the vehicle into a safe space and, seeing that it was no more than a short distance from the office, we were able to get to her fairly quickly. The wrong fuel was taken out and she could go home to the Premier Inn she was residing in. Although we got really drenched, it was all worth the effort to see her drive home relaxed and a lot less stressed. Another fuel drain in Cambridgeshire 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.
