Wrong Fuel Assist Glenmavis - Wrong Fuel in Car Glenmavis

I had a perfect afternoon hiking during the weekend and felt delighted with myself the next working day as I set out to assist a new family who were on holiday in Glenmavis. They stopped after filling petrol into their friend's Audi Q7, and the car was around an hour away. I arrived at their location and smiled to myself as I listened to the girl telling off her hubby for actually being so foolish. "Exactly how could you possibly manage to fill the vehicle up using the wrong fuel?" she told him. I attempted to clarify that this problem happens continuously in North Lanarkshire and that it is nothing at all to get worried about, but he all the same had an ear bashing by his missus. Unfortunate chap. Anyhow, I drained the contaminated fuel, gave the engine a flush and gave them some right fuel. While watching them drive away I shouted bon voyage and considered what her indoors would ask me if perhaps I did the exact same thing... I'd under no circumstances live it down!

Wrong Fuel Doctor Glenmavis - Fuel Rescue Glenmavis

A lady from Glenmavis with her children in her diesel white Toyota Land Cruiser had put £42 of petrol at the Sainsburys petrol station. She phoned us weeping and genuinely upset as she had never put petrol in a diesel and did not know what would happen to her car . We reassured her that the vehicle would be fine and that she would be in action quickly. When we arrived on scene she was still upset but as our technician started work on the fuel drain she simmered down because she noticed that something could be done and her vehicle wasn't ruined. She soon enough brightened up and was up and running saying, "I can't believe my bad luck putting the wrong fuel in my car! Particularly with the kids in the back."

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.
