It was before ten pm on a Monday and although we were guaranteed a rainless afternoon, it hadn't given up on pouring down rain! Ray and I were resting discussing the weekend's golf rankings, prepared for the next telephone call of the day to arrive. Inevitably we had a call from a girl on a business excursion who had pulled into the Shell filling station in Winsford and filled the wrong fuel in a diesel daughter's Hyundai Genesis Coupe rental. She was quite troubled by the sounds of it, telling me "I can't believe that I've wrecked the vehicle! I'm so familiar with filling up my petrol car I totally did not remember I was operating a diesel!" We told her to settle back and not to fret, also that such things unfortunately happen. She was able to relocate the vehicle into a safe area and, because it was no more than a few minutes away from our van, we could reach the lady right away. The wrong fuel was cleaned up and removed so she was able to get back to the motel she was lodging in. Although we got thoroughly drenched, it was all worth the effort seeing her drive off satisfied and much less stressed. One more fuel drain in Cheshire well done in my mind!

I enjoyed a perfect day fishing during my holiday and was feeling contented the following day as I headed out to help a young family who were on holiday in Winsford. They broken down after adding diesel into their canary yellow Peugeot 306, and they were about half an hour away. I got there at their car and smiled to myself while I listened to the girl telling her man off for actually being so silly. "Exactly how could you even find a way to put the wrong fuel in the car?" she told him. I attempted to clarify that this problem happens quite frequently in Cheshire and that it's absolutely nothing to worry about, even so he all the same got an ear bashing by his wife. Unlucky chap. In any case, I removed all of the wrong fuel, gave the motor a flush and filled it up with the proper fuel. While watching them drive down the road I mouthed good bye and wondered what my wife would do to me if perhaps I did the exact same thing... I would never ever hear the end of it!

Wrong Fuel in Car Winsford - Petrol in Diesel Car Winsford

Now I am not excessively enthusiastic about doing work weekends, and a couple weeks ago was the same. I'd only just come away from the wife and kids after eating a magnificent dinner prepared by the missus, and I was en route to deal with a gentleman who had filled the wrong petrol in his green Fiat Bravo. He was located in Winsford and so I arrived there very quickly. As I drove up right behind the vehicle and got busy draining he said to me "Thank God! I foolishly had my concentration on stuff and didn't perceive I had put the wrong fuel in my petrol vehicle. I need to know if I created any kind of problems through running it?" I explained truth be told there should not be harm and also I'd drain the fuel as quickly as possible for him. Needless to say I removed the contaminated fuel from the car and put in the correct fuel, and so yet another content motorist had the ability to continue their travelling without the need for bother. He did not stop thanking me, and this is what tends to make carrying out work on weekends in Cheshire a little bit easier for me personally!

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.
