Wrong Fuel in Car Tavistock - Tavistock Misfuelling

Just had a great night of sleep! It was 7:30 am on a warm Sunday and I was on my way to help an older woman who put petrol in her diesel blue Mercedes-Benz Sprinter in Tavistock. I had been informed she had left the filling station and was pulled up along a backwater road on route to see her godchildren. I got her location punched straight into the Satnav and was with her inside 60 minutes. I got to the stricken lady and drained the contaminated fuel from the car. While I was doing it she told me, "I am getting relatively absent-minded in my old age and forgot about the vehicle working with diesel because I had only just acquired it a week back when my former one, which I'd had for in excess of 30 years, eventually broke down". I got the drain completed and she offered me a toffee and thanked me for my hard work. What a pleasant Devon lady!

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.
