It was just before ten pm on a Friday and despite the fact that we were assured a dry afternoon, it hadn't stopped raining! Brian and I were relaxing there talking over the golf rankings, waiting for the sixth job to come in. Eventually we got the call from a lovely woman on a business excursion who had gone to the Tesco petrol station in Hamilton and put the wrong fuel in a diesel dilapidated Land Rover Defender hire car. She was fairly troubled by the sounds of it, crying "I simply can't believe I have ruined the car! I am just so used to putting unleaded in my petrol car that I had forgot that I was driving a diesel!" We advised her to take it easy and not to worry, plus that such things sadly do happen. She managed to move the car to a safe spot and, as it was just a short distance away from our van, we could find the lady fairly quickly. The bad fuel was extracted and she was able to get back to the Premier Inn she was lodging at. Although we got very drenched, it was all worth the effort to see her drive away satisfied and much less worried. Yet another misfuel correction in South Lanarkshire well done in my mind!

Wrong Fuel in Car Hamilton - Hamilton Misfuelling

A rather alarmed motorist called us from the Shell petrol station at South Lanarkshire to advise us that he had put petrol in his diesel rugged Audi A4; he wasn't entirely sure how he'd managed to do it. We explained to him it was absolutely no situation and rapidly had our technician with him to clear the incorrect fuel from his vehicle. Having purged the incorrect fuel, he was soon enough back rolling again. He told us; "I can't believe I put petrol in my diesel car. And the person who was sent to do the fuel drain was extremely excellent - he did not make me appear foolish."

Wrong Fuel Assist Hamilton - Wrong Fuel in Car Hamilton

I had a perfect day fishing on the weekend and was feeling pleased the next morning as I set off to assist a young family holidaying in Hamilton. They pulled over after inserting petrol into their cyan Hyundai Accent, and were approximately an hour away. I arrived at their location and laughed to myself as I heard to the girl telling her hubby off for turning out to be so silly. "Precisely how could you even find a way to fill the car up using the wrong fuel?" she said to him. I tried to tell her that this occurs quite frequently in South Lanarkshire and that it is absolutely nothing to fret about, but he still had an earful. Poor guy. Anyway, I cleaned up and removed the contaminated fuel, flushed the motor and filled it up with the right fuel. Watching as they drove off I mouthed bon voyage and considered what my missus would do to me if ever I made the very same blunder... I would personally never hear the end of it!

We performed a wrong fuel retrieval job near a beautiful residential home in Hamilton recently. "I had put unleaded in my diesel car and was able to very nearly reach home when my car cut out." Our technician went out, regardless that it was pretty late at night, and did a thorough fuel drain and cleanse on the spick and span Austin Mini Cooper .

This was most definitely an unsociable time to be awake. It was around 3am and almost noone was about. It had been rather dead up to now, and John and I were relaxing looking through several old articles. It was a rare quiet time in South Lanarkshire. It was in fact so calm that the instant my mobile ultimately rang I jumped with surprise! The person stated: "I have just completed my overnight shift and stupidly filled the wrong fuel in a friend's Mercedes SLK-Class in error". I told him to let us know just where he was located and we headed out, arriving in Hamilton less than half an hour later. The fuel was removed from the vehicle and he thanked us profusely for arriving so fast. As we were returning to base we noticed two women on the side of the highway who appeared to have a flat. So we got out to 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.
