It was just before 9 pm on a Tuesday and even though we were assured a dry and fresh night, it had not ceased raining! Brian and I were sitting commenting on the footy results, waiting for the next fuel drain to come in. Eventually we got the call from a woman on a company trip who had gone to the Esso petrol station in Woburn Sands and filled the wrong fuel in a diesel white Hyundai Accent lease car by mistake. The unfortunate thing was rather agitated by the sounds of it, saying "I simply can't believe I have ruined the vehicle! I'm just so accustomed to filling my petrol car that I totally forgot I was using a diesel!" We told her to relax and not to worry, and also that these things sadly often happen. She managed to get the vehicle to a protected spot and, since it was only a short distance off from us, we were able to arrive at the customer fairly quickly. The incorrect fuel was taken out so she was able to return to the hotel she was lodging at. Despite the fact we got very soaked, it was all worth the effort to watch her drive away calm and much less stressed. One more job in Buckinghamshire done well in my books!

Wrong Fuel in Car Woburn Sands - Petrol in Diesel Car Woburn Sands

I'm not necessarily very interested in doing work Sundays, and a couple weeks ago was no different. I'd just come away from home filled with a fantastic dinner prepared for me by the wife, and I was on my way to deal with a man after he had put the incorrect fuel in his maroon Daihatsu Charade. He was located in Woburn Sands hence I was on scene soon. As I arrived at the rear of the car and got out he said to me "Praise God! I had my thoughts on other stuff and didn't realise I had put the wrong fuel in my petrol vehicle. Is it possible I caused some harm as a result of running it?" I stated that generally there probably should not be problems and that I'd personally remove the fuel as soon as possible. Obviously I got the wrong fuel drained from the vehicle and filled up with the appropriate fuel, and thus yet another pleased customer had the ability to continue on his journey without any fuss. The man could hardly stop thanking me, and this is what helps make operating on Sundays in Buckinghamshire that little better for me!

This was certainly what we call the night shift. It was close to dawn and hardly anyone was stirring. It had been rather uneventful thus far, and me and Ryan were loafing about reading several old papers. That was a rare calm time in Buckinghamshire. Actually it was that relaxing that the moment my mobile finally rang I jumped! The voice on the phone explained: "I just concluded my night shift and stupidly put the wrong fuel in my diesel immaculate Volvo240 by mistake". I instructed him to inform us exactly where the car was situated and we set off, arriving in Woburn Sands not as much as an hour or so later. The contaminated fuel was cleared from the vehicle. He thanked us profusely for coming out so quickly. As we were coming back to base we found two girls at the side of the road who seemed to have a puncture. Obviously we got out to change it, much 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.
