It was just after 8 pm on a Wednesday and despite the fact that we were promised a dry afternoon, it had not stopped raining! Ray and me were resting going over the recent golf rankings, waiting for the seventh telephone call that day to come in. Inevitably we got the call from a girl on a business trip who had gone to the Esso petrol station in Jedburgh and filled petrol in a diesel grey Land Rover Discovery rental car by mistake. The poor lady was quite troubled it seemed, crying "I can't believe I have messed up the vehicle! I'm just so accustomed to putting unleaded in my petrol vehicle I completely didn't remember I was running a diesel!" We asked her to relax and not to worry, and also that these things unfortunately happen. She was able to relocate the vehicle into a secure spot and, seeing that it was no more than a few miles off from the office, we could find the customer without delay. The contaminated fuel was taken out so she could return to the motel she was lodging at. Even though we got fairly wet, it was all rewarding to see her drive away contented and much less worried. Yet another misfuel correction in Scottish Borders well done in my opinion!

I had a terrific evening cycling during my afternoon off and felt delighted the next morning as I set out to help a new family vacationing in Jedburgh. They'd stopped after putting diesel into their classic Lexus, and the car was around half an hour's travel away. I showed up at their location and smiled to myself as I listened to the wife telling her husband off for turning out to be so silly. "Precisely how could you conceivably be able to fill up using the wrong fuel?" she asked him. I tried to tell her that this kind of thing takes place quite frequently in Scottish Borders and that it's nothing at all to be concerned about, however he still got his ear bent. I felt genuine sympathy for the guy. Anyways, I drained the polluted fuel, gave the engine a flush and gave them some correct fuel. While watching them drive off I mouthed bon voyage and pondered on what my missus would ask me if ever I did the exact same thing... I would personally never ever live it down!

Wrong Fuel in Car Jedburgh - Petrol in Diesel Car Jedburgh

Now I am certainly not too keen on working weekends, and a while back was no different. I had just come away from the family following a tasty lunch made by the better half, and I was off to sort out a fellow after he had put the incorrect fuel in his metallic blue Kia Soul. He was located in Jedburgh so it wouldn't be a long time before I arrived with him. Just as I arrived at the car and got out he told me "Thank God! I incredibly had my mind on something else and did not perceive I'd put diesel in my petrol car. Have I brought about some problems through running it?" I revealed that there shouldn't be any kind of problems and that also I would drain the wrong fuel as quickly as possible. As expected I removed the contaminated fuel from the car and put in the correct fuel, and thus one more pleased client had the ability to carry on with their ride without bother. The man could hardly stop saying thanks to me, and this is exactly what helps make working on weekends in Scottish Borders a tiny bit better for me!

A customer employed in Jedburgh contacted us after she managed to get her wrong fuelled car to the office. She had put the wrong fuel in her diesel husband's Cadillac STS-V and, like many people before her, assumed that she would be able to simply fill up her tank with diesel and it would be okay. The vehicle was chugging and then it cut out when she got to the entrance of her work. We immediately started on the fuel drain following her call and had it resolved within an hour or so whilst she was in the office. She came outside later on and thanked us stating, "I'm extremely glad you repaired my 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.
