Wrong Fuel in Car Lesmahagow - Petrol in Diesel Car Lesmahagow

Now I'm not necessarily so interested in doing work on Sundays, and last week was no different. I had only just left the family following a wonderful dinner cooked for us by the wife, and I was on the way to deal with a guy who put the wrong fuel in his mustard yellow Mercedes-Benz R-Class. He was located in Lesmahagow therefore I arrived with him very quickly. Just as I pulled up at the vehicle and stepped out he said to me "Thank God! I stupidly had my attention on other considerations and failed to realise I have put diesel in my petrol vehicle. Is it possible I brought about any damage by simply starting it?" I stated generally there shouldn't be harm and that also I'd get the wrong fuel drained as soon as possible. It goes without saying that I got the contaminated fuel drained from the car and put in the appropriate fuel, and then yet another satisfied customer could continue their ride without the hassle. The man couldn't stop thanking me, and this is actually what can make working on weekends in South Lanarkshire a little bit easier to me!

This was exactly what is called an unsociable time to be on the road. It was roughly 3am and almost noone was around. It had been rather uneventful so far, and Ryan and I were loafing reading through a few old newspapers. It was an unusual calm time in South Lanarkshire. Actually it was in fact that calm that the instant my mobile finally rang it made me jump! The person on the opposite end explained: "I've completed my night shift and incredibly poured the wrong fuel in my diesel luxury Daewoo Lanos". We asked him to inform us exactly where the vehicle was located and we set off, reaching him in Lesmahagow no more than an hour or so later. The contaminated fuel was cleaned from the car and he said thanks for showing up so rapidly. While we were going back home we saw two young ladies on the side of the road who looked like they suffered a flat tyre. As a result we pulled over to change it, to their delight.

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.
