It was before 5 pm on a Friday and despite the fact that we were assured a dry and fresh day, it had not ceased raining! Ray and me were sitting there talking about the weekend's football rankings, waiting for the 8th fuel drain that day to arrive. Finally we had a call from a lady on a business trip who had gone to the Shell filling station in Yateley and filled the wrong fuel in her diesel burgundy red BMW X5 M hire car by mistake. She was quite distressed apparently, crying "I can not believe that I have wrecked the vehicle! I'm just so accustomed to filling my petrol car I completely did not remember that I was using a diesel!" I told her to settle back and not to worry, and that things like this sadly can happen. She was able to get the car to a secure position and, seeing as it was no more than a short distance from the office, we could arrive at the woman fairly quickly. The bad fuel was taken out so she was able to once again go back to the motel she was lodging in. Even though we got extremely drenched, it was all rewarding to watch her drive off satisfied and less stressed. A job in Hampshire well done in my mind!

Wrong Fuel in Car Yateley - Petrol in Diesel Car Yateley

I am not very inclined to working on weekends, and 2 weeks ago was no different. I had only just left the family filled with a tasty Sunday roast prepared by the wife, and I was off to help a man after he had put the wrong petrol in his navy blue Nissan 350Z Roadster. He was situated in Yateley hence it wasn't long before I got to him. As I drove up at the car and stepped out he told me "Praise God! I foolishly had my concentration on stuff and did not perceive I've put diesel in my petrol vehicle. Have I created some harm through running it?" I said that truth be told there should not be any problems and also I'd remove the fuel immediately. Naturally I removed the contaminated fuel from the car and filled it with the correct fuel, and thus yet another content customer could continue their ride with no difficulty. He couldn't stop thanking me, and this tends to make earning a living on Sundays in Hampshire just that small bit better to me!

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.
