A young lady had conked out on a street, Forfar just after having misfueled. She was crying and fairly troubled as she had put £50 of petrol in her diesel car.

Wrong Fuel in Car Forfar - Petrol in Diesel Car Forfar

I'm certainly not too excited about doing the job Sundays, and a couple weeks ago was no different. I had only just left the family after a tasty lunch cooked for me by the missus, and I was en route to assist a gentleman who had put the incorrect petrol in his husband's BMW 760. He was situated in Forfar thus it wouldn't be long before I got to him. Just as I drove up behind the vehicle and started work he explained to me "Thank the Almighty! I had my thoughts on something else and did not perceive I'd put diesel in my petrol car. I need to know if I brought on any kind of damage by driving it?" I stated that there shouldn't be harm and also that I would drain the contaminated fuel immediately. As expected I got the wrong fuel drained from the vehicle and put in some correct fuel, and so another satisfied motorist was able to continue on his journey with no difficulty. The man could hardly stop saying thanks to me, and that is exactly what can make earning a living on weekends in Angus just that small bit easier in my opinion!

It truly was an unsociable time to be on the road. It was about 3 in the morning and hardly anyone was around. It had been fairly quiet thus far, and Brian and I were relaxing perusing several old newspapers. That was an uncommon peaceful time in Angus. It was indeed that calm that when the phone ultimately rang I jumped! The customer on the opposite end said: "I have just finished my evening shift and incredibly poured the wrong fuel in the canary yellow Peugeot 309 by mistake". I asked him to inform us where he was and we left, arriving in Forfar no more than an hour later. The wrong fuel was extracted from the vehicle and he thanked us profusely for arriving so rapidly. While we were coming back home we found two ladies on the side of the road who seemed to have a flat tyre. Accordingly we pulled over to help them 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.
