Wrong Fuel in Car Totnes - Totnes Misfuelling

Just had a fantastic night's uninterrupted sleep! 7:30 am on a warm Monday and I was off to assist an elder lady after she put petrol in her diesel bright white Mercedes SLK-Class in Totnes. I had been informed she had driven away from the petrol station forecourt and was pulled up on a rural road on the way to visit her family.

Now I am not ever that excited about carrying out work Sundays, and last week was the same. I had just departed the family filled with a wonderful roast prepared for me by the wife, and I was on my way to deal with a man who had filled the wrong fuel in his winter grey Cadillac Brougham. He was somewhere in Totnes therefore it wouldn't be long before I got to him. As I pulled up right behind the vehicle and got busy draining he told me "Thank the Lord! I had my thoughts on other considerations and didn't ascertain I have put the wrong fuel in my petrol car. I need to know if I brought about some problems simply by starting it?" I stated that truth be told there shouldn't be any problems and also I'd get the contaminated fuel drained quickly. Needless to say I got the contaminated fuel drained from the car and filled it with some correct fuel, and so one more contented customer had the ability to continue on their journey without any hassle.

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.
