Eventually we got the phone call from a girl on a company trip who had arrived at the Shell petrol station in Whitefield and filled petrol in her diesel matte black Peugeot 2008 rental. The poor lady was fairly agitated it seemed, telling me "I still cannot believe that I've messed up the car!

This was certainly an unsociable hour to be up. It was around 2 in the morning and noone was about. It had been quite dead so far, and me and Brian were loafing about perusing a few old newspapers. That was an uncommon peaceful time in Greater Manchester. Actually it was indeed that calm that the moment my mobile eventually rang I leaped with surprise! The motorist on the opposite end told me: "I just completed my overnight shift and foolishly filled petrol in a diesel dirty red Land Rover Defender 110 in error". I instructed him to tell us exactly where he was and we hit the road, ending up in Whitefield not as much as an hour or so later. The wrong fuel was extracted from the car and he said thanks for coming out so promptly. While we were returning home we saw two ladies on the edge of the highway who appeared to have a flat tyre. Accordingly we stopped to change it, to their elation.

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.
