It was about 6 pm on a Thursday and while we were promised a dry and fresh night, it hadn't stopped pouring down rain! Dan and I were seated talking over the recent golf, at the ready for the 6th call for the day to come in. In due time we got the phone call from a lovely women on a company expedition who had gone to the Texaco petrol station in Lanark and put the wrong fuel in a diesel partner's Porsche 911 rental car. She was rather distressed apparently, telling me "I just can't believe I have messed up the car! I'm so accustomed to filling my petrol car that I totally forgot I was operating a diesel!" I just told her to relax and not to fret, plus that things like this do happen. She was able to move the car into a secure position and, because it was no more than a short distance from us, we could arrive at the woman without delay. The wrong fuel was extracted so she was able to once again go back to the motel she was lodging at.

Wrong Fuel in Car Lanark - Petrol in Diesel Car Lanark

Now I'm not actually so enthusiastic about doing work weekends, and 2 weeks ago was the same. I'd just come away from the family following a superb dinner prepared for me by the wife, and I was en route to assist a fellow who filled the incorrect fuel in his worse for wear VW GLI. He was located in Lanark thus I arrived with him almost immediately. As I pulled up at the rear of the car and stepped out he explained to me "Praise the Almighty! I had my mind on stuff and didn't perceive I'd put diesel in my petrol vehicle. Have I brought on some problems because of driving it?" I said generally there shouldn't be any kind of damage and also I'd personally get the fuel drained quickly for him. As expected I drained the fuel from the vehicle and filled it with some suitable fuel, and thus one more pleased client had the ability to continue their ride without any subsequent hassle. The gentleman did not stop thanking me, and this makes operating on weekends in South Lanarkshire just a tiny bit better for me!

This was certainly what is called the night shift. It was roughly sunrise and almost noone was stirring. It had become fairly quiet thus far, and me and Ryan were loafing looking at some old magazines. This was a rare tranquil time in South Lanarkshire. It was in fact so calm that when the telephone rang it made me start! The voice told me: "I've just completed my night shift and foolishly poured the wrong fuel in the diesel mate's VW Eos in error". We instructed him to inform us where he was located and we set off, getting to him in Lanark only 30 minutes later. The wrong fuel was taken out from the engine. He thanked us for coming so promptly. While we were returning to the depot we spotted two ladies on the edge of the highway who seemed like they suffered a puncture. Obviously we pulled up and helped them change it, much to their elation.

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.
