It was before eight pm on a Thursday and although we were guaranteed a rainless night, it had not ceased pouring down rain! Dan and I were sitting talking over the weekend's rugby results, ready for the seventh fuel drain of the day to arrive. In due time we had a phone call from a young lady on a business trip who had arrived at the Shell filling station in Loanhead and put petrol in a diesel mustard yellow BMW 6 Series lease car by mistake. She was fairly distressed by the sounds of it, stating "I simply can't believe that I have destroyed the car! I am so used to filling up my petrol vehicle I completely did not remember I was using a diesel!" I just instructed her to calm down and not to fret, also that such things unfortunately do happen.

Wrong Fuel Assist Loanhead - Wrong Fuel in Car Loanhead

I appreciated a fantastic day golfing on the weekend and was feeling cheerful the next morning as I set out to help a young family on holiday in Loanhead. They had broken down after putting petrol in their dark blue Jaguar XK Series, and they were close to half an hour away. I arrived at their position and smiled as I heard to the lady telling her spouse off for being so foolish. "Just how could you conceivably be able to fill the vehicle up using the wrong fuel?" she demanded of him. I attempted to tell her that this kind of thing comes to pass everyday in Midlothian and that it's really absolutely nothing to be anxious about, even so he yet still got an earful by his wife. I felt genuine sympathy for the boy. Anyways, I cleaned up and removed the wrong fuel, flushed the engine and filled it up with the correct fuel. While watching them drive off I mouthed farewell and wondered what her indoors would tell me in the event that I did the same thing... I would personally under no circumstances live it down!

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.
