Wrong Fuel in Car Sudbury - Sudbury Misfuelling

Just had a fantastic night's uninterrupted sleep! 7:00 on a warm Tuesday and I was en route to assist an old sweetheart who put petrol in her diesel super Cadillac CTS in Sudbury. I'd been told she drove away from the filling station and was pulled up on a backwater road on the way to pay a visit to her grandchildren. I punched her location straight into the Satnav and arrived within 60 minutes. I reached the destination and removed the contaminated fuel in the car vehicle. As I was doing the drain she said, "I'm getting quite forgetful in my old age and didn't remember about the car using diesel seeing that I'd only just acquired it a couple of days back when my former one, which I used for more than twenty years, eventually gave up the ghost". I finished the drain and she offered me a toffee and said thank you. Such a precious Suffolk lady!

This really was an unsociable time to be up. It was about sunrise and noone was about. It had become rather uneventful so far, and me and Mark were sitting around perusing a couple of old newspapers. It was an unusual tranquil hour in Suffolk. Actually it was that calm that the moment the telephone eventually rang I leaped! The voice explained: "I have just concluded my night shift and foolishly put petrol in my diesel silver Hyundai Elantra by mistake". I told him to inform us where exactly he was situated and we hit the road, reaching him in Sudbury under an hour later. The contaminated fuel was taken out from the vehicle. He thanked us profusely for arriving so quickly. As we were heading back to the office we saw two young ladies at the edge of the street who looked like they had a flat tyre. Accordingly we pulled over to help them change it, much to their delight.

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.
