It was before seven pm on a Friday and although we were assured a dry and fresh afternoon, it hadn't given up on raining! Dan and I were relaxing going over the tennis results, prepared for the seventh telephone call of the day to come in. Finally we received a phone call from a lovely woman on a business expedition who had arrived at the Shell petrol station in Windermere and filled the wrong fuel in a diesel abused Fiat 500 rental by mistake. The poor lady was pretty affected it seemed, crying "I still cannot believe that I have ruined the vehicle! I'm so used to filling my petrol car I completely did not remember I was running a diesel!" I just advised her to settle back and not to be concerned, and that things like this regrettably can happen.

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.
