This was certainly what is called an unsociable time to be on the road. It was roughly dawn and almost noone was stirring. It had become rather uneventful up to now, and me and Brian were sitting around reading several old magazines. This was a rare quiet hour in Dumfries and Galloway. Actually it was in fact that relaxing that the instant the phone rang I leaped with surprise! The person on the phone told me: "I have concluded my overnight shift and foolishly poured the wrong fuel in a light green Hyundai Entourage". I instructed him to let us know where the car was located and we left, getting to him in Gretna not as much as an hour or so later. The wrong fuel was cleaned up and removed from the vehicle.

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.
