This was an unsociable time to be up. It was close to 3:30am and hardly anyone was stirring. It had become fairly uneventful so far, and me and Ray were relaxing perusing a number of old articles. That was an uncommon quiet hour in Scottish Borders. It was so calm that the moment the phone eventually rang it made me jump! The person told me: "I have concluded my night shift and stupidly put the wrong fuel in a bright white Mercedes CLK-Class by mistake". I told him to inform us exactly where the car was located and we headed out, ending up in Coldstream not as much as an hour later. The fuel was cleaned up and removed from the vehicle and he thanked us profusely for coming so promptly. As we were returning home we found two women at the side of the highway who seemed to have a flat tyre. As a result we pulled up to change it, 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.
