Wrong Fuel in Car Forth - Forth Misfuelling

Ahhh, that was a good night of sleep! 7:30 in the morning on a bright Sunday and we were off to help an elder sweetheart after she put the wrong fuel in her diesel pristine Daewoo Leganza in Forth. She informed us that she had left the petrol station forecourt and pulled up along a rural road on route to visit her grandchildren. I punched the location straight into the TomTom and was with her within an hour. I reached the destination and removed the contaminated fuel from the vehicle. While I was doing it she said, "I'm getting quite forgetful in my senior years and forgot about the vehicle taking diesel as I had just acquired it several days back after my former car, which I used for more than twenty five years, eventually gave up the ghost". I finished the drain and she gave me a peppermint and said thank you. What a lovely South Lanarkshire woman!

Wrong Fuel in Car Forth - Petrol in Diesel Car Forth

I'm certainly not so keen on carrying out work Sundays, and a week ago was no different. I'd only just left the wife and kids after a magnificent lunch cooked for me by the wife, and I was off to assist a gentleman after he had filled the wrong petrol in his dilapidated Volkswagen Eos. He was somewhere in Forth therefore I was with him quickly. As I arrived at the vehicle and stepped out he said to me "Thank the Lord! I incredibly had my attention on other things and failed to grasp that I have put the wrong fuel in my petrol car. Have I caused problems by simply driving it?" I stated that truth be told there probably should not be any kind of harm and that also I would get the wrong fuel drained quickly for him. As expected I got the fuel drained from the car and filled up with the appropriate fuel, and thus another contented client could continue their ride without any fuss. He could hardly stop thanking me, and this is what helps make operating on Sundays in South Lanarkshire just a small bit better in my opinion!

This was exactly the night shift. It was roughly 3am and hardly anyone was around. It had become rather uneventful thus far, and Brian and I were sitting around looking at a number of old magazines. This was a rare calm hour in South Lanarkshire. Actually it was indeed so relaxing that the moment the telephone inevitably rang I leaped with surprise! The customer on the phone said: "I have just completed my overnight shift and incredibly filled the wrong fuel in my brother's Mazda MX-6". I told him to tell us where exactly the car was and we left, getting to him in Forth only 30 minutes later. The wrong fuel was taken out from the vehicle. He thanked us for arriving so promptly. As we were returning home we found two ladies at the edge of the highway who looked like they had a flat tyre. As a result 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.
