It was just before 9 pm on a Friday and even though we were guaranteed a dry day, it had not ceased raining! Mark and me were resting there discussing the weekend's golf rankings, ready for the 6th call of the day to arrive. Inevitably we got a call from a young lady on a business trip who had arrived at the BP petrol station in Stockport and put the wrong fuel in her diesel precious Daewoo Lanos rental car by mistake. The unfortunate lady was pretty affected by the sounds of it, stating "I simply can't believe I have destroyed the vehicle! I'm so used to filling my petrol car I had didn't remember I was driving a diesel!" We asked her to calm down and not to worry, also that things like this often happen. She had managed to maneuver the car to a protected space and, seeing that it was no more than a few minutes away from us, we were able to arrive at her right away. The wrong fuel was drained so she was able to go home to the motel she was lodging in. Although we got fairly drenched, it was all worth it seeing her drive off relaxed and much less concerned.

This was what we call the night shift. It was around 3:30am and hardly anyone was stirring. It had been pretty uneventful so far, and Ray and I were relaxing looking through a number of old articles. This was an unusual calm moment in Greater Manchester. Actually it was so peaceful that when the phone ultimately rang I leaped! The customer explained: "I have only just ended my overnight shift and foolishly filled petrol in my diesel worse for wear Lexus IS F by mistake". I got him to tell us just where the vehicle was located and we set off, arriving in Stockport not as much as 30 minutes later. The incorrect fuel was extracted from the motor. He said thanks for getting there so quickly. While we were returning home we spotted two girls at the edge of the street who seemed to have a puncture. As a result we pulled up to help them change it, much to their elation.

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.
