Wrong Fuel in Car Lochmaben - Lochmaben Misfuelling

What a good night of sleep! 7:00 am on a sunny Sunday and we were on the way to help an elder sweetheart after she put petrol in her diesel sunflower yellow Volkswagen GLI in Lochmaben. She told us that she had driven away from the filling station and broken down in a backwater road en route to see her grandchildren. I punched the location in the Satnav and was with her within an hour or so. I arrived at the vehicle and drained the wrong fuel out of the vehicle. Whilst I was working she said to me, "I have been getting fairly forgetful in my senior years and did not remember about the vehicle taking diesel seeing that I had only just purchased it a few days ago because my former one, which I had for over 30 years, finally died". I finished the drain and she offered me a Murray mint and said thanks. Such a delightful Dumfries and Galloway woman!

Wrong Fuel Assist Lochmaben - Wrong Fuel in Car Lochmaben

I had a perfect afternoon fishing on my day off and was feeling contented the following day as I headed out to aid a new couple who were on holiday in Lochmaben. They'd stopped after inserting diesel in their dilapidated Volvo960, and the car was roughly half an hour away. I emerged at their location and laughed to myself as I listened to the wife telling her spouse off for actually being so stupid. "How could you even manage to put the wrong fuel in the car?" she asked him. I wanted to tell her that this kind of thing takes place everyday in Dumfries and Galloway and that it's in reality absolutely nothing to worry about, however he yet still got an earful. Poor boy. At any rate, I extracted the wrong fuel, gave the motor a flush and gave them some appropriate fuel. While they drove away I shouted farewell and pondered on what her indoors would say to me if I did the same thing... I would personally under no circumstances live it down!

Wrong Fuel in Car Lochmaben - Petrol in Diesel Car Lochmaben

I'm not too keen on doing work weekends, and 2 weeks ago was no different. I had only just come away from the wife and kids after eating a tasty lunch made for me by the better half, and I was en route to sort out a gentleman who had filled the wrong fuel in his husband's Ford Taurus. He was somewhere in Lochmaben hence it wouldn't be long before I reached him. As I drove up behind the vehicle and started work he said to me "Thank the Lord! I stupidly had my concentration on stuff and failed to ascertain I'd put diesel in my petrol car. Is it likely I inflicted problems as a result of starting it?" I said that there shouldn't be any kind of damage and that I would personally get the contaminated fuel drained as quickly as possible for him. It goes without saying that I got the contaminated fuel drained from the vehicle and put in some appropriate fuel, and thus one more satisfied customer had the ability to continue on his ride with no fuss. He couldn't stop thanking me, and that is exactly what tends to make earning a living on weekends in Dumfries and Galloway that tiny bit easier to me!

A customer driving in Lochmaben contacted us shortly after she managed to get her misfueled vehicle to the office. She had put unleaded in her diesel mum's Dodge Avenger and, like many before her, thought that she could basically fill up the vehicle with diesel and it would be alright. The engine was spluttering and then it stopped when she arrived at the entrance of her office. We promptly started on the fuel drain after she called and got it sorted inside an hour or so while she was in the office. She came outside afterwards and thanked us saying, "I'm extremely delighted you repaired my vehicle."

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.
