It was after 7 pm on a Tuesday and though we were guaranteed a dry day, it hadn't ceased raining! Dan and me were seated there talking over the recent sports rankings, ready for the seventh telephone call of the day to come in. Eventually we received a call from a young lady on a company expedition who had arrived at the Tesco petrol station in Wymondham and put petrol in a diesel grass green Cadillac XLR hire car in error. She was pretty irritated by the sounds of it, crying "I cannot believe I've messed up the car! I'm so familiar with filling my petrol vehicle that I had did not remember I was operating a diesel!" I instructed her to relax and not to be concerned, and also that things like this do happen. She managed to relocate the car into a protected position and, seeing as it was just a few minutes away from where we were, we could find the lady swiftly. The wrong fuel was taken out and she could get back to the Travelodge she was lodging at.

Wrong Fuel in Car Wymondham - Wymondham Misfuelling

Ahhh, that was a great night's sleep! It was 7:00 on a gloomy Sunday and we were off to help an old woman after she had put contaminated fuel in her diesel metallic grey Toyota FJ Cruiser in Wymondham. She informed us that she had left the petrol station forecourt and was stranded in a backwater road on route to pay a visit to her godchildren. I popped the location into the TomTom and got there in less than an hour. I turned up at the vehicle and removed the contaminated fuel out of the vehicle. As I was doing it she said to me, "Now I'm becoming rather forgetful in my old age and forgot about the car using diesel seeing that I had only acquired it a short while ago when my other one, which I had owned for over twenty five years, eventually died". I got the drain completed and she gifted me a peppermint and thanked me for my hard work. What a pleasant Norfolk woman!

A couple of days ago a customer contacted us right after his creamy white Jaguar XK Series stopped working in the middle of a road in Wymondham. He had by accident put unleaded in the diesel vehicle and got so far as the road before needing to halt. It was really in the early hours of the morning and our fuel drainer, who resides nearby, reached him in approximately a quarter hour. We were able to remove the wrong fuel and put clean diesel yet again in to the car. "Thank you for your prompt response, particularly at 1 a.m., I really appreciate it."

We were phoned by a gentleman whose mom's Mitsubishi Precis had ground to a halt on a street because he put the wrong fuel in it.

A driver from Wymondham with a full car of kids in her diesel matte black BMW 645 had put £45 of petrol at the BP filling station. She contacted us sobbing and very worried as she had never put petrol in a diesel car and did not know what could happen to her car in doing so. We told her that all would be fine and that she would be back on the road very quickly. When we arrived on scene she was still upset but while our engineer started work on the fuel drain she calmed down as she noticed that help was at hand and her vehicle wasn't wrecked. She soon brightened up and was on her way saying, "I just can't believe my bad luck putting petrol in my diesel car! Particularly with the little ones on board."

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.
