It was just after 5 pm on a Friday and even though we were guaranteed a dry night, it hadn't stopped pouring! James and I were sitting there talking over the weekend's football, prepared for the 6th fuel drain for the day to arrive. Before long we received a call from a lady on a company trip who had pulled into the Shell filling station in Livingston and filled the wrong fuel in her diesel work's BMW 600 rental by mistake. She was rather distressed it seemed, saying "I can not believe that I have destroyed the vehicle! I'm just so accustomed to filling up my petrol car I had didn't remember I was operating a diesel!" We instructed her to take it easy and not to worry, and that such things happen. She had managed to maneuver the vehicle into a secure area and, seeing as it was just a few minutes from the office, we were able to get to the lady quickly. The bad fuel was removed so she could get back to the Premier Inn she was staying in. Even though we got thoroughly wet, it was all worth the effort seeing her drive home relaxed and much less concerned. Another misfuel correction in West Lothian done well in my opinion!

Wrong Fuel in Car Livingston - Livingston Misfuelling

What a good night's uninterrupted sleep! It was 7:30 on a gloomy Saturday and we were on my way to assist an old woman after she had put contaminated fuel in her diesel aunt's Peugeot Expert in Livingston. She told us that she had left the filling station forecourt and stranded on a rural road on the way to visit her godchildren. I punched the location into the TomTom and arrived in less than an hour or so. I reached the stricken lady and drained the wrong fuel out of the car. Whilst I was doing the work she told me, "I have been getting rather absent-minded in my old age and did not remember about the car taking diesel as I'd only just got it a short while ago right after my other one, which I'd owned for more than twenty years, eventually died". I got the job done and she presented me a toffee and thanked me for my efforts. What a pleasant West Lothian lady!

This really was what is called an unsociable hour to be up. It was around sunrise and almost noone was about. It was rather uneventful up to now, and me and Ray were relaxing reading a number of old newspapers. It was a rare calm moment in West Lothian. Actually it was in fact so relaxing that the instant my mobile inevitably rang I leaped! The motorist told me: "I've just completed my evening shift and foolishly put the wrong fuel in my diesel cobalt blue Ford Aspire by mistake". We got him to let us know where exactly he was and we left, arriving in Livingston not as much as half an hour later. The fuel was removed from the engine and he thanked us for getting there so fast. While we were coming back home we saw two girls on the side of the highway who appeared to have a flat tyre. Obviously we stopped to change it, much 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.
