It was around ten pm on a Wednesday and although we were assured a dry evening, it had not stopped raining! James and I were relaxing talking over the weekend's tennis results, waiting around for the next job of the day to arrive. Finally we had the phone call from a girl on a business excursion who had gone to the Sainsburys petrol station in Aberdour and filled petrol in her diesel bright red Volvo XC60 hire car. The poor lady was somewhat affected by the sounds of it, saying "I cannot believe that I have wrecked the vehicle! I'm so accustomed to putting unleaded in my petrol vehicle I had did not remember that I was operating a diesel!" I advised her to calm down and not to be concerned, and also that things like this unfortunately happen. She managed to move the vehicle into a protected area and, seeing as it was just a few miles from us, we could arrive at the customer right away. The wrong fuel was cleaned up and removed and she could get back to the Travelodge she was residing in. Despite the fact that we got really soaked, it was all worth it to see her drive home contented and much less stressed. One more job in Fife done well in my mind!

Wrong Fuel in Car Aberdour - Aberdour Misfuelling

What a fantastic night of uninterrupted sleep! It was 7:00 in the morning on a rainy Monday and I was on my way to assist an elder lady after she put contaminated fuel in her diesel well worn BMW Z4 M Roadster in Aberdour. She told us that she drove away from the petrol station and stranded along a country road on route to see her godchildren. I plugged the location in the Satnav and was with her inside an hour. I arrived at the car and removed the contaminated fuel out of the car. While I was working she explained, "I am becoming rather forgetful in my senior years and did not remember about the vehicle taking diesel seeing that I had only just acquired it a short while ago right after my other car, which I owned for more than 25 years, inevitably died on me". I got the drain done and she gifted me a toffee and said thanks. What a precious Fife lady!

A guy had broken down just off a street in Aberdour. His husband's Saab 9000 car had stopped working and he had no idea what was the problem right up until he realised he had put unleaded in his diesel vehicle. He called us to request a fuel drain and that is when he said to us: "I can't believe that I didn't realise that I put the incorrect fuel in my vehicle." He claimed that he had got absolutely no sleep the day before and that must have been why.

A lady driving in Aberdour phoned us shortly after she tried to get her wrong fuelled vehicle to her office. She had filled petrol in her diesel metallic red Peugeot 307 and, like many people before her, thought that she would be able to basically top up the vehicle with diesel and it would run no problem. The car was spluttering and then it died when she came to the the front of her work. We quickly started on the fuel drain following her call and had it repaired inside an hour while she was in the office. She came outside afterwards and thanked us saying, "I'm really pleased you sorted my vehicle."

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.
