It was just after six pm on a Wednesday and although we were guaranteed a rainless afternoon, it hadn't given up on raining! Dan and I were sitting discussing the weekend's football, waiting around for the 8th fuel drain for the day to come in. In due time we had a phone call from a lady on a company excursion who had arrived at the BP petrol station in Woodcock Hill and filled petrol in her diesel apricot Audi 4000CS Quattro hire car by mistake. The unfortunate lady was very agitated apparently, crying "I simply cannot believe that I've wrecked the car! I am so accustomed to filling my petrol car that I completely forgot I was using a diesel!" I asked her to relax and not to fret, plus that things like this unfortunately often happen. She managed to get the car to a safe space and, seeing as it was just a few miles off from where we were, we were able to arrive at the woman almost instantly. The incorrect fuel was drained so she was able to go home to the Travelodge she was lodging in. Even though we got fairly wet, it was all worthwhile seeing her drive away contented and much less stressed. A job in Birmingham well done in my books!

This was exactly what is called an unsociable hour to be on the road. It was about dawn and hardly anyone was around. It had become quite dead up to now, and Ray and I were loafing around reading a few old articles. This was an uncommon peaceful hour in Birmingham. It was in fact so peaceful that the moment the telephone eventually rang it made me start! The voice stated: "I have only just ended my overnight shift and stupidly filled petrol in a father's BMW X5 M". I instructed him to let us know where exactly he was located and we set off, arriving in Woodcock Hill under an hour later. The wrong fuel was cleaned from the vehicle. He said thanks for getting there so promptly. As we were coming back home we noticed two women at the side of the road who seemed like they suffered a flat. Obviously we got out and helped them change it, to their delight.

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.
