Wrong Fuel in Car Stalybridge - Petrol in Diesel Car Stalybridge

I am not necessarily so hot for running on weekends, and last week was no different. I'd just left the wife and kids after a wonderful dinner made by the wife, and I was on the way to sort out a guy who had filled the wrong petrol in his black Peugeot Boxer. He was located in Stalybridge so it wasn't long before I got to him. As I pulled up at the rear of the car and stepped out he said to me "Praise the Almighty! I foolishly had my concentration on other stuff and did not perceive I've put the wrong fuel in my petrol vehicle. Have I caused any kind of problems by running it?" I revealed that truth be told there shouldn't be any problems and that I'd personally remove the contaminated fuel quickly for him. It goes without saying that I got the fuel drained from the vehicle and filled up with the correct fuel, and then one more delighted customer was able to continue on his travelling without difficulty. The man could hardly stop saying thanks to me, and that tends to make earning a living on Sundays in Greater Manchester that tiny bit less painful for me!

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.
