It was just after five pm on a Thursday and even though we were assured a dry day, it hadn't ceased raining! Ryan and I were resting there talking about the weekend's football rankings, ready for the 6th telephone call that day to arrive. Eventually we received a call from a young lady on a business expedition who had gone to the Sainsburys filling station in Tiverton and filled the wrong fuel in a diesel well worn Isuzu Impulse rental by mistake. The poor thing was very troubled by the sounds of it, crying "I can't believe that I've ruined the vehicle! I am just so familiar with filling up my petrol vehicle that I totally forgot that I was operating a diesel!" I just asked her to settle back and not to be concerned, and that such things do happen. She was able to move the vehicle into a secure space and, seeing that it was only a short distance from our van, we were able to find her almost instantly. The contaminated fuel was removed and she was able to go home to the hotel she was lodging in. Despite the fact that we got extremely wet, it was all worth the effort seeing her drive away satisfied and much less worried. Yet another misfuel correction in Devon done well in my opinion!

Wrong Fuel in Car Tiverton - Tiverton Misfuelling

Ahhh, that was a good night's sleep! 7:30 on a bright Monday and I was on my way to assist an elder sweetheart who had put petrol in her diesel boss' Ford Focus in Tiverton. She told us that she drove away from the filling station forecourt and was pulled up along a backwater road along the way to visit her grandchildren. I got her location plugged into the TomTom and arrived in less than 60 minutes. I got to the car and drained the contaminated fuel in the car vehicle. As I was doing the work she explained, "I'm getting relatively forgetful in my senior years and didn't remember about the car needing diesel since I'd only just bought it a week back right after my old car, which I'd had for about 25 years, eventually died". I completed the job and she offered me a toffee and said thanks a lot. What a delightful Devon lady!

A lady from Tiverton with a full car of children in her diesel spotless Toyota RAV4 had filled her vehicle with £40 of petrol at the BP service station.

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.
