Eventually we got a phone call from a lovely women on a company expedition who had arrived at the BP petrol station in Castle Douglas and filled the wrong fuel in her diesel friend's Fiat 500 rental car. She was pretty irritated by the sounds of it, stating "I cannot believe that I've ruined the vehicle!

I appreciated a terrific afternoon golfing during my afternoon off and felt contented the following day as I headed out to help a new family holidaying in Castle Douglas. They had conked out after adding diesel in their aunt's Cadillac XLR, and the car was close to half an hour away. I got there at their location and laughed to myself while I heard to the girl telling off her spouse for being so confused. "Just how could you actually be able to put the wrong fuel in the vehicle?" she asked him. I attempted to explain that this kind of thing comes to pass everyday in Dumfries and Galloway and that it's nothing at all to be anxious about, however he still had an ear bashing. Unlucky lad. Anyhow, I extracted all the polluted fuel, gave the motor a flush and filled them up with the proper fuel. As they drove down the road I shouted so long and pondered on what my missus would tell me if ever I did the same thing... I'd personally never hear the end of it!

This really was what we call an unsociable time to be awake. It was about 2:30 in the morning and noone was stirring. It had been rather dead up to now, and me and Ryan were relaxing looking at a number of old articles. It was a rare calm hour in Dumfries and Galloway. It was in fact that calm that when the telephone eventually rang it made me jump! The person on the opposite end explained: "I have concluded my evening shift and incredibly poured the wrong fuel in a light blue Mitsubishi Chariot". We instructed him to tell us where the vehicle was and we headed out, ending up in Castle Douglas only an hour or so later. The fuel was cleaned up and removed from the motor and he thanked us profusely for coming out so quickly. While we were coming back home we found two young women on the edge of the street who seemed to have a flat. So we pulled over to change it, much to their elation.

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.
