It was just after 6 pm on a Friday and although we were guaranteed a rainless night, it hadn't ceased pouring down rain! Ryan and me were seated there talking about the golf, prepared for the 6th fuel drain to arrive. In due time we had a call from a lovely women on a business excursion who had arrived at the Tesco petrol garage in Menstrie and filled the wrong fuel in a diesel new-shape Skoda Citigo rental car in error. The unfortunate lady was rather affected apparently, telling me "I can not believe I have ruined the car! I am so used to filling my petrol vehicle I completely did not remember that I was using a diesel!" I just told her to settle back and not to fret, and also that such things regrettably happen. She managed to relocate the car to a protected spot and, seeing that it was just a few miles away from our van, we could find the lady right away. The bad fuel was taken out so she could once again go back to the motel she was living in. Even though we got very soaked, it was all rewarding to watch her drive off contented and much less stressed. A misfuel correction in Clackmannanshire done well in my opinion!

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.
