Ahhh, that was a good night of uninterrupted sleep! 7:30 am on a rainy Tuesday and I was en route to help an elder sweetheart after she put petrol in her diesel green Renault Modus in Gartcosh. I'd been informed she drove away from the filling station and was pulled up along a rural road en route to see her grandchildren. I got the location punched into the TomTom and arrived within an hour. I got to the vehicle and drained the contaminated fuel in the car car. Whilst I was working she explained, "I am getting relatively absent-minded in my senior years and forgot about the car using diesel as I had just purchased it several days ago after my old one, which I had used for over twenty years, finally broke down". I got the drain done and she gifted me a peppermint and said thank you. Such a precious North Lanarkshire woman!

Wrong Fuel in Car Gartcosh - Petrol in Diesel Car Gartcosh

We performed a wrong fuel retrieval exercise outside a lovely residence in Gartcosh not so long ago. "I put petrol in my diesel car and managed to virtually reach home when my car cut out." Our technician went out, despite the fact that it was fairly late at night, and carried out a full fuel drain and purge on the boss' Land Rover Range Rover .

This really was an unsociable hour to be up. It was about 3 in the morning and noone was around. It had been fairly quiet thus far, and me and Brian were loafing looking through a number of old newspapers. That was an unusual tranquil hour in North Lanarkshire. Actually it was indeed so calm that the moment the phone ultimately rang it made me jump! The customer on the other end told me: "I've finished my overnight shift and foolishly poured the wrong fuel in a diesel navy blue Toyota Yaris in error". We got him to tell us just where the vehicle was and we left, ending up in Gartcosh no more than half an hour later. The contaminated fuel was cleaned from the car. He said many thanks for getting there so promptly. As we were heading back to the depot we found two young ladies on the edge of the road who seemed to have a puncture. Accordingly we stopped and helped them change it, much to their delight.

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.
