I had a terrific day golfing on the weekend and was feeling pleased the following morning as I was en route to aid a young couple who were away in Tenby. They'd conked out after inserting the wrong fuel in their dark green Lexus LFA, and were around half an hour's travel away. I got there at their position and smiled while I listened to the woman telling her partner off for being so silly. "Exactly how could you conceivably be able to fill up by using the wrong fuel?" she said to him. I attempted to explain that this goes on all the time in Pembrokeshire and that it's absolutely nothing to be concerned about, nevertheless he in spite of everything got an earful. Unlucky lad. Anyway, I drained out the contaminated fuel, gave the fuel system a flush and filled it up with the proper fuel. Watching as they drove away I mouthed farewell and considered what her indoors would ask me if I made the very same blunder... I would personally never hear the end of it!

Wrong Fuel in Car Tenby - Petrol in Diesel Car Tenby

I am not so keen on carrying out work on weekends, and a week ago was no different. I had just left the family after a fantastic lunch prepared for me by the better half, and I was off to help a gentleman because he filled the incorrect petrol in his aunt's Vauxhall Corsa. He was only in Tenby therefore it wouldn't be long before I reached him. As I pulled up at the vehicle and stepped out he told me "Thank God! I foolishly had my thoughts on stuff and did not realise I'd put the wrong fuel in my petrol car. Have I brought about some harm simply by starting it?" I stated that truth be told there probably should not be any harm and also I would get the wrong fuel drained immediately for him. Naturally I removed the contaminated fuel from the car and put in some correct fuel, and so one more delighted client could continue on their journey with no difficulty. The gentleman did not stop thanking me, and this tends to make earning a living on weekends in Pembrokeshire that tiny bit easier for me personally!

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.
