It was after 9 pm on a Friday and even though we were assured a rainless afternoon, it had not ceased raining! Dan and me were sitting commenting on the weekend's golf rankings, waiting around for the sixth call that day to come in. Before long we had the call from a woman on a company expedition who had gone to the Sainsburys filling garage in Galashiels and put the wrong fuel in a diesel teal BMW X6 M rental car in error. The poor thing was very troubled it seemed, saying "I just can't believe I've messed up the vehicle! I'm so accustomed to filling my petrol car I had didn't remember that I was using a diesel!" I instructed her to settle back and not to fret, also that things like this unfortunately happen. She had managed to move the car to a secure position and, since it was just a short distance away from our van, we could find the woman quickly. The incorrect fuel was removed and she was able to once again go back to the motel she was living in. Even though we got very wet, it was all rewarding to watch her drive home contented and less concerned. Yet another misfuel correction in Scottish Borders well done in my mind!

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.
