It was before 5 pm on a Saturday and while we were promised a dry and fresh night, it had not stopped pouring! Dan and I were relaxing commenting on the weekend's rugby results, waiting for the seventh telephone call for the day to arrive. Before long we received the phone call from a lovely women on a business expedition who had pulled into the Tesco petrol garage in Trowbridge and filled the wrong fuel in a diesel Ferarri red Jaguar XF lease car by mistake. The unfortunate thing was quite agitated apparently, saying "I can't believe that I have destroyed the car! I am so used to filling up my petrol vehicle that I completely did not remember that I was running a diesel!" I just told her to settle back and not to fret, and also that things like this often happen. She was able to relocate the car into a safe area and, seeing that it was just a few minutes off from where we were, we were able to find the lady swiftly. The wrong fuel was taken out and she could return to the hotel she was staying in. Despite the fact that we got thoroughly wet, it was all worth the effort to see her drive home calm and not so stressed. A fuel drain in Wiltshire done well in my books!

A gentleman had stopped near a road in Trowbridge. His aunt's BMW 545 engine had stopped running and he'd no idea what was faulty right up until he noticed he had put petrol in his diesel vehicle. He rang us to request a fuel drain and that's when he explained to us: "I can't believe that I didn't know that I had put the incorrect fuel in my car." He said that he had gotten absolutely no sleep the evening before and that must have been the reason.

Wrong Fuel in Car Trowbridge - Petrol in Diesel Car Trowbridge

It can't be fun conking out in a automobile full of the wrong fuel in the middle of the street. We had a customer who filled her car with the incorrect fuel (compact Mercedes SLK-Class) in Trowbridge encountered exactly this type of dilemma: "You may already know that I mistakenly put the wrong fuel in my car last week. I was so distressed about my mistake that I was in tears. But I shouldn't have worried as you were terrific in sorting it out."

Wrong Fuel Doctor Trowbridge - Fuel Rescue Trowbridge

A young lady from Trowbridge with a full car of children in her diesel yellow Honda Civic GX had put £40 of petrol at the Shell petrol station. She contacted us crying and extremely distraught as she had never put petrol in a diesel car before and didn't know what could happen to her vehicle because of it. We assured her that all should be ok and that she would be back on the road very quickly. When we arrived on scene she was still distressed but as our fuel drainer started work on the fuel drain she calmed down as she noticed that help was at hand and her vehicle wasn't wrecked. She soon brightened up and was on her way saying, "I can't believe my bad luck putting petrol in my diesel car! Particularly with the children in the back."

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.
