It was just before 10 pm on a Saturday and while we were guaranteed a dry evening, it hadn't stopped pouring! Mark and I were relaxing there discussing the weekend's football rankings, ready for the next fuel drain of the day to come in. Finally we had the call from a lady on a company excursion who had pulled into the Shell filling garage in Wincanton and put the wrong fuel in her diesel filthy Volvo V70 hire car in error. The poor thing was pretty distressed apparently, stating "I still cannot believe that I have messed up the car! I'm so used to filling my petrol vehicle that I completely didn't remember that I was driving a diesel!" We told her to settle back and not to be concerned, and that these things happen. She was able to get the vehicle to a secure space and, since it was no more than a few miles away from us, we could arrive at her rather quickly. The contaminated fuel was removed so she could go home to the Travelodge she was living in. Despite the fact we got extremely soaked, it was all worthwhile to see her drive off contented and not so concerned. One more job in Somerset done well in my opinion!

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.
