It was just after 10 pm on a Thursday and even though we were assured a rainless night, it had not given up on raining! Mark and me were seated there talking about the weekend's golf, waiting around for the next telephone call to arrive. In due time we got a phone call from a young lady on a business trip who had arrived at the Tesco filling station in Kinglassie and put petrol in her diesel father's Volvo960 rental car by mistake. She was very irritated it seemed, crying "I cannot believe I have messed up the vehicle! I am just so familiar with putting petrol in my petrol car I had forgot I was using a diesel!" I just asked her to calm down and not to fret, and that things like this unfortunately often happen. She had managed to maneuver the vehicle to a secure space and, seeing that it was no more than a few minutes off from the office, we could arrive at her almost instantly. The wrong fuel was extracted and she was able to return to the Travelodge she was living in. Although we got extremely soaked, it was all worthwhile seeing her drive home relaxed and a lot less stressed. A misfuel correction in Fife well done in my opinion!

Wrong Fuel in Car Kinglassie - Kinglassie Misfuelling

Ahhh, that was a good night of uninterrupted sleep! 7:30 am on a bright Bank Holiday Monday and I was en route to help an old lady who put contaminated fuel in her diesel partner's Cadillac Eldorado in Kinglassie. She told us that she had left the filling station and stranded in a backwater lane along the way to see her family. I popped her location straight into the Satnav and was with her within an hour. I turned up at the stricken lady and extracted the wrong fuel in the car vehicle. As I was doing it she said, "Now I'm becoming quite absent-minded in my old age and didn't remember about the car working with diesel because I'd just acquired it several days back when my other one, which I'd used for over thirty years, eventually stopped working". I finished the job and she gave me a Murray mint and said thanks a lot. Such a delightful Fife lady!

Wrong Fuel Assist Kinglassie - Wrong Fuel in Car Kinglassie

I had enjoyed a terrific afternoon fishing on my off day and was feeling satisfied with myself the following day as I was en route to assist a new couple who were on holiday in Kinglassie. They had stopped after adding the wrong fuel in their dirty red Subaru Impreza WRX, and were approximately an hour's travel away. I arrived at their location and smiled as I heard to the gal berating her husband for actually being so stupid. "Exactly how could you even find a way to put the wrong fuel in the car?" she said to him. I tried to clarify that this occurs all the time in Fife and that it is nothing to worry about, but he still had his ear bent by his missus. Unlucky boy. At any rate, I extracted all of the polluted fuel, flushed the fuel system and filled them up with the appropriate fuel. While watching them drive off I mouthed farewell and thought about what my missus would ask me if ever I made the exact same error... I would under no circumstances hear the end of it!

Wrong Fuel in Car Kinglassie - Petrol in Diesel Car Kinglassie

We did a wrong fuel retrieval job near a lovely property in Kinglassie recently. "I had put unleaded in my diesel car and managed to very nearly get home when my car quit." Our fuel drainer went out, even though it was rather late at night, and performed a thorough fuel drain and cleanse on the raspberry red Porsche Cayman to everyone's satisfaction.

A lady from Kinglassie with a full car of youngsters in her diesel luxury MINI Cooper Countryman had filled her vehicle with £42 of petrol at the petrol station. She called us crying and extremely distraught as she had never filled up with the wrong fuel previously and didn't know what could happen to her vehicle . We reassured her that all should be alright and that she would be back ready to go soon. When we arrived on scene she was visible upset but while our fuel drainer got to work on the fuel drain she simmered down because she discovered that help was at hand and her car wasn't wrecked. She soon brightened up and was up and running saying, "I really can't believe my bad luck putting petrol in my diesel car! Especially with the youngsters on board."

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.
