It was before 8 pm on a Saturday and though we were assured a dry day, it had not stopped raining! Brian and I were resting there discussing the football results, waiting for the 8th job for the day to come in. Before long we got the call from a lovely woman on a company expedition who had pulled into the BP petrol garage in Laurencekirk and filled the wrong fuel in her diesel metallic red Mitsubishi Eclipse hire car in error. The poor lady was somewhat troubled apparently, telling me "I still can't believe I've destroyed the vehicle! I'm just so accustomed to filling my petrol vehicle I completely did not remember that I was using a diesel!" I advised her to relax and not to fret, and that these things often happen. She was able to relocate the car to a protected space and, seeing that it was no more than a short distance from the office, we could reach the customer without delay. The incorrect fuel was extracted and she could once again go back to the Travelodge she was lodging at. Even though we got pretty wet, it was all worth the effort seeing her drive away contented and not so worried. Yet another misfuel correction in Aberdeenshire well done in my mind!

Tales from our own Laurencekirk employees:

Wrong Fuel in Car Laurencekirk - Petrol in Diesel Car Laurencekirk

We did a wrong fuel removal exercise near a spectacular residence in Laurencekirk not so long ago. "I put petrol in my diesel car and was able to more or less reach home when my car quit." Our technician went out, even though it was pretty late at night, and carried out a standard fuel drain and purge on the spick and span Dodge Colt to everyone's satisfaction.

Wrong Fuel Doctor Laurencekirk - Fuel Rescue Laurencekirk

A young lady from Laurencekirk with her little ones in her diesel brother's Toyota FJ Cruiser had filled her vehicle with £42 of petrol at the Texaco petrol station. She contacted us crying and very upset as she had never filled up with the wrong fuel and did not know what could happen to her car in doing so. We assured her that all should be okay and that she would be ready to go quickly. When we got there she was visible distressed but as our technician got to work on the fuel drain she simmered down as she saw that something could be done and her vehicle wasn't wrecked. She soon brightened up and was up and running saying, "I can't believe my luck putting petrol in my diesel car! Especially with the children 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.
