Wrong Fuel in Car Ystradgynlais - Petrol in Diesel Car Ystradgynlais

Now I am not ever so excited about running Sundays, and a couple weeks ago was the same. I'd only just left the wife and kids filled with a wonderful dinner prepared for us by the missus, and I was on my way to help a man after he had filled the incorrect petrol in his daughter's Audi S8. He was located in Ystradgynlais and so it wasn't a long time before I reached him. As I pulled up right behind the car and got out he told me "Praise God! I stupidly had my concentration on other things and failed to realise I had put diesel in my petrol vehicle. Have I brought on harm by simply running it?" I said there probably should not be any harm and that I'd personally get the fuel drained at once for him. Obviously I drained the wrong fuel from the vehicle and filled up with the suitable fuel, and thus another satisfied customer was able to continue his ride without bother. The guy couldn't stop thanking me, and that is exactly what tends to make carrying out work on Sundays in Powys that little less painful 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.
