Wrong Fuel in Car Edinburgh - Petrol in Diesel Car Edinburgh

Now I'm not actually too interested in doing the job on weekends, and 2 weeks ago was no different. I'd just departed home after a magnificent lunch prepared for me by the better half, and I was en route to assist a fellow who had put the wrong fuel in his shiny Mercedes C-Class. He was located in Edinburgh thus I was on scene soon. Just as I drove up right behind the vehicle and got busy draining he said to me "Praise the Lord! I had my thoughts on other stuff and did not ascertain I've put the wrong fuel in my petrol vehicle. I need to know if I caused any harm because of driving it?" I explained truth be told there probably should not be harm and that also I would personally remove the wrong fuel as quickly as possible. Needless to say I removed the contaminated fuel from the car and put in some appropriate fuel, and thus yet another happy customer could carry on with their trip without bother. He did not stop saying thanks to me, and that is actually what tends to make working on Sundays in City of Edinburgh just a little bit better in my opinion!

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.
