It was close to 10 pm on a Thursday and although we were guaranteed a dry and fresh afternoon, it hadn't given up on pouring! Paul and I were relaxing talking over the footy, waiting for the seventh job for the day to arrive. Inevitably we had the phone call from a lovely woman on a business trip who had gone to the Tesco filling station in Tring and put petrol in a diesel dark green Mercedes CLK-Class hire car in error. The unfortunate lady was fairly troubled apparently, crying "I simply cannot believe that I've destroyed the car! I am just so accustomed to filling up my petrol car I had did not remember I was running a diesel!" We asked her to calm down and not to fret, also that these things unfortunately do happen. She was able to maneuver the vehicle to a safe spot and, seeing as it was only a short distance away from the office, we were able to arrive at the customer fairly quickly. The wrong fuel was taken out so she was able to return to the Travelodge she was living in. Even though we got extremely drenched, it was all worthwhile to see her drive home relaxed and a lot less anxious. One more misfuel correction in Hertfordshire well done in my books!

The 3 things you HAVE TO know about fuel contamination!

Wrong Fuel in Car Tring - Tring Misfuelling

Ahhh, that was a good night of sleep! 7:30 in the morning on a sunny Sunday and we were off to help an old sweetheart after she had put the wrong fuel in her diesel trusty Volkswagen Beetle in Tring. She told us that she drove away from the filling station forecourt and stranded on a rural road en route to pay a visit to her grandchildren. I plugged her location straight into the Satnav and got there in less than 60 minutes. I got to the destination and drained the wrong fuel from the vehicle. Whilst I was doing the drain she said to me, "Now I'm becoming somewhat forgetful in my senior years and didn't remember about the car working with diesel because I had only purchased it a couple of days ago because my other car, which I'd had for over thirty years, finally died". I got the job completed and she gave me a Murray mint and thanked me for my work. Such a pleasant Hertfordshire woman!

Wrong Fuel Assist Tring - Wrong Fuel in Car Tring

I had appreciated a wonderful day cycling during the weekend and was feeling satisfied with myself the following working day as I was en route to assist a young couple who were on vacation in Tring. They conked out after inserting petrol in their red Range Rover, and the car was about half an hour away. I emerged at their location and smirked as I listened to the woman chastising her hubby for turning out to be so confused. "How could you actually find a way to fill the vehicle up with the wrong fuel?" she said to him. I tried to clarify that this occurs continuously in Hertfordshire and that it's really nothing at all to fret about, and yet he yet still got an earful by his better half. Poor chap. Anyway, I removed the contaminated fuel, flushed the fuel system and filled them up with the correct fuel. Watching as they drove away I shouted good bye and wondered what her indoors would say to me if perhaps I made the very same mistake... I would personally never hear the end of it!

We supply you with fresh fuel at petrol station prices, and we can generally have your car done and able to go in less than one hour. All mixed fuel is disposed of by us through a registered waste carrier and recycled.

Wrong Fuel in Car Tring - Petrol in Diesel Car Tring

We not too long ago had a phone call about a young man who had put the incorrect fuel in his canary yellow Mazda RX-8 in Tring. He had broken down on the road. "After putting unleaded in my diesel car I didn't recognise the problem till the time we conked out. You removed the wrong fuel from my car and had it working again. I was pleased due to both your speed and your value for money". Naturally we appeared promptly and purged the engine after draining all the unleaded from the diesel tank. The motorist was smiling again by the time we were done and he drove away satisfied and content.

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.
