It was about 10 pm on a Tuesday and despite the fact that we were guaranteed a rainless evening, it had not given up on pouring down rain! Dan and me were relaxing there discussing the rugby rankings, at the ready for the 6th job for the day to come in. Finally we got a call from a lovely woman on a company trip who had arrived at the Esso petrol station in Cumnock and filled the wrong fuel in a diesel aunt's BMW M hire car in error. She was rather affected it seemed, telling me "I just can't believe I have wrecked the vehicle! I'm just so familiar with putting unleaded in my petrol car that I completely didn't remember I was operating a diesel!" We instructed her to take it easy and not to worry, and also that things like this sadly can happen. She had managed to relocate the car to a protected area and, as it was no more than a few minutes off from where we were, we were able to reach her quickly. The bad fuel was removed and she was able to go home to the Premier Inn she was lodging at. Despite the fact we got pretty wet, it was all worth the time to watch her drive away satisfied and not so concerned. A fuel drain in East Ayrshire well done in my mind!

Wrong Fuel in Car Cumnock - Cumnock Misfuelling

A relatively alarmed customer phoned us from the Total petrol station at East Ayrshire to inform us that he had put petrol in to his diesel mint condition Chevrolet Suburban; he wasn't exactly sure how he'd managed to do it. We assured him it was not a problem and before long had our engineer with him to clear the contaminated fuel from his car. Having purged the bad fuel, he was almost immediately back on the road. He told us; "I can't believe I filled my car with the wrong fuel. And the man who came to perform the fuel drain was especially excellent - he didn't make me look ridiculous."

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.
