Wrong Fuel in Car Uppingham - Uppingham Misfuelling

Just had a good night of uninterrupted sleep! 7:00 in the morning on a warm Bank Holiday Monday and we were off to help an elder woman who put the wrong fuel in her diesel raspberry red Suzuki Kizashi in Uppingham. She informed us that she had left the filling station and broken down on a rural road on the way to see her godchildren. I plugged her location straight into the TomTom and was with her in less than an hour. I got to the stricken lady and removed the wrong fuel from the vehicle. While I was working she explained, "Now I'm getting rather forgetful in my senior years and didn't remember about the vehicle needing diesel since I had just bought it a couple of days back right after my old one, which I'd owned for about 25 years, inevitably stopped working". I got the job completed and she offered me a Murray mint and thanked me for my efforts. What a lovely Rutland lady!

A customer from Uppingham with a full car of children in her diesel cobalt blue Toyota Highlander had filled her vehicle with £30 of petrol at the Sainsburys service station. She called us weeping and very distraught as she had never put petrol in a diesel car previously and didn't know what could happen to her vehicle in doing so. We reassured her that the vehicle should be fine and that she would be back ready to go quickly. When we arrived she was visible upset but as our engineer got to work on the fuel drain she calmed down since she saw that help was at hand and her vehicle wasn't unfixable.

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.
