It was just before 6 pm on a Saturday and although we were assured a dry evening, it had not stopped pouring! Paul and me were sitting there discussing the recent tennis results, waiting for the sixth job that day to come in. Before long we received the call from a young lady on a company trip who had gone to the Shell petrol station in Langholm and filled petrol in her diesel khaki green Cadillac Escalade rental car by mistake. The poor thing was somewhat troubled apparently, crying "I simply can't believe I've destroyed the car! I'm just so familiar with filling up my petrol vehicle I totally forgot I was driving a diesel!" I just told her to relax and not to be concerned, plus that things like this unfortunately often happen. She was able to move the car into a protected space and, seeing that it was only a few minutes away from our van, we could get to the customer without delay. The incorrect fuel was taken out so she could get back to the motel she was residing in. Despite the fact we got really wet, it was all rewarding to watch her drive away contented and less concerned. One more fuel drain in Dumfries and Galloway well done in my opinion!

I had enjoyed a terrific evening hiking on my day off and felt pleased with myself the following morning as I was en route to help a new family who were vacationing in Langholm. They pulled over after filling diesel in their compact Renault Megane, and were about half an hour away. I turned up at their location and smirked as I listened to the lady telling her hubby off for turning out to be so foolish. "How could you even manage to put the wrong fuel in the car?" she told him. I attempted to explain that this problem takes place continuously in Dumfries and Galloway and that it's truly nothing at all to be concerned about, and yet he all the same had an ear bashing by his better half. Unlucky boy. Anyway, I extracted the wrong fuel, flushed the motor and gave them some right fuel. Watching them drive away I shouted hasta la vista and pondered on what her indoors would tell me in the event that I made the very same mistake... I'd never live it down!

We completed a wrong fuel retrieval job outside a lovely residential home in Langholm recently. "I had put the wrong fuel in my diesel car and managed to very nearly reach home when my car broke down." Our technician went out, even though it was rather late at night, and carried out a fuel drain and cleanse on the khaki green Jaguar XJ .

A gentleman who had put the wrong fuel in his diesel mum's VW Touareg phoned us for a fuel drain at the Shell filling station in Langholm. He thought it would be good to top up before continuing on to the local caravan park . "I put unleaded rather than diesel which unfortunately wasn't a good start to our holiday." It was definitely no trouble by any means for our fuel drainer to go and do the fuel drain. We hope they had a good holiday.

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.
