It was just before 6 pm on a Thursday and although we were guaranteed a dry and fresh day, it hadn't ceased pouring! Dan and I were sitting there going over the footy results, prepared for the seventh fuel drain of the day to come in. Finally we received a call from a lady on a company expedition who had arrived at the Tesco petrol station in Grantown-on-Spey and filled the wrong fuel in her diesel teal Volvo V90 rental car in error. She was quite irritated apparently, saying "I can't believe that I've destroyed the car! I am so accustomed to putting petrol in my petrol car that I totally didn't remember I was driving a diesel!" I advised her to take it easy and not to be concerned, and also that these things sadly can happen.

I'm not actually very keen on doing the job weekends, and a week ago was the same. I'd just left the family filled with a magnificent Sunday roast prepared for us by the wife, and I was on my way to help a man who had put the wrong fuel in his mint green BMW 530. He was only in Grantown-on-Spey and so it wouldn't be a long time before I arrived with him. Just as I drove up right behind the car and started work he told me "Praise God! I had my thoughts on other things and failed to grasp that I have put the wrong fuel in my petrol vehicle. Is it possible I inflicted some damage by simply running it?" I said truth be told there should not be any kind of problems and that I'd personally get the fuel drained at once. It goes without saying that I got the wrong fuel drained from the car and put in some suitable fuel, and then another contented client had the ability to carry on with their ride without any subsequent bother. He could hardly stop thanking me, and this is what can make working on weekends in Highland a little bit less painful for me!

This was exactly the graveyard shift. It was roughly dawn and nobody was about. It had been fairly dead thus far, and me and Brian were loafing about looking at a number of old newspapers. It was a rare restful hour in Highland. Actually it was in fact that calm that when the phone inevitably rang it made me start! The voice on the other end told me: "I've finished my night shift and foolishly poured petrol in the diesel cream VW Golf". We told him to inform us where he was and we headed out, reaching him in Grantown-on-Spey an hour or so later. The incorrect fuel was taken out from the motor. He said thanks a lot for showing up so fast. As we were going back home we noticed two women on the side of the road who seemed to have a flat. As a result we stopped to help 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.
