Wrong Fuel in Car Thatcham - Thatcham Misfuelling

Just had a good night's sleep! It was 7:00 on a sunny Sunday and we were on the way to help an elder woman who had put petrol in her diesel mate's Mercedes SLK-Class in Thatcham. She informed us that she had left the petrol station and was pulled up in a rural road en route to see her godchildren. I punched the location into the Satnav and was with her within an hour or so. I reached the car and extracted the wrong fuel out of the vehicle. Whilst I was doing the work she said to me, "I have been becoming relatively forgetful in my old age and did not remember about the vehicle needing diesel as I had only bought it a week back after my former car, which I'd had for in excess of twenty five years, eventually gave up the ghost". I finished the job and she presented me a toffee and said thanks. What a precious Berkshire lady!

I had enjoyed a perfect afternoon golfing during my off day and felt cheerful with myself the following morning as I headed out to help a young couple holidaying in Thatcham. They'd conked out after putting diesel in their scruffy Bugatti Veyron, and were approximately half an hour's drive away. I showed up at their car and laughed to myself as I listened to the woman telling her hubby off for turning out to be so foolish. "Just how could you conceivably manage to fill the car up using the wrong fuel?" she said to him. I wanted to clarify that this situation goes on regularly in Berkshire and that it's actually nothing to be concerned about, but he in spite of everything got his ear bent by his wife. I felt sorry for the boy. In any case, I extracted the contaminated fuel, gave the engine a flush and gave them some appropriate fuel. As they drove down the road I waved bon voyage and pondered on what her indoors would tell me if ever I did the same thing... I would under no circumstances hear the end of it!

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.
