Wrong Fuel in Car Wickham - Wickham Misfuelling

Just had a good night of uninterrupted sleep! 7:00 am on a sunny Tuesday and I was en route to help an old lovely lady who put contaminated fuel in her diesel elegant BMW 550 in Wickham. She informed us that she had driven away from the petrol station and stranded in a backwater road along the way to see her family. I plugged the location into the TomTom and arrived in less than an hour. I arrived at the car and extracted the wrong fuel in the car vehicle. As I was doing the work she explained, "Now I'm getting rather forgetful in my old age and didn't remember about the vehicle needing diesel as I had only just bought it a short while ago after my former one, which I had had for about 25 years, inevitably died on me". I got the job completed and she presented me a toffee and said thank you. What a delightful Hampshire woman!

A driver from Wickham with her youngsters in her diesel silver Seat Ibiza had filled her vehicle with £20 of petrol at the Co Op petrol station. She phoned us crying and genuinely distraught as she had never put petrol in a diesel car before and didn't know what would happen to her car because of it. We reassured her that everything should be fine and that she would be back ready to go quickly.

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.
