Wrong Fuel Doctor Stone - Fuel Rescue Stone

This was an unsociable time to be up. It was close to 3am and almost noone was stirring. It had become quite dead thus far, and me and Mark were sitting around reading through several old papers. This was a rare restful hour in Staffordshire. It was indeed so peaceful that the moment my mobile eventually rang it made me jump! The motorist explained: "I've finished my evening shift and incredibly put the wrong fuel in the sombre grey BMW 760 in error". We asked him to tell us just where he was situated and we headed out, ending up in Stone not as much as an hour later. The fuel was cleaned up and removed from the vehicle. He thanked us for coming out so rapidly. As we were heading back to base we saw two girls at the edge of the street who looked like they had a flat tyre. Accordingly we got out 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.
