It was about six pm on a Thursday and while we were guaranteed a dry and fresh afternoon, it hadn't stopped pouring! James and I were seated there talking about the recent golf results, waiting for the 8th fuel drain that day to come in. Inevitably we received a call from a woman on a business excursion who had gone to the BP petrol garage in Newport-on-Tay and Wormit and filled petrol in a diesel mum's Audi TT rental in error. She was rather distressed by the sounds of it, saying "I cannot believe that I have messed up the vehicle! I'm just so used to filling my petrol car that I totally didn't remember I was operating a diesel!" I just advised her to relax and not to worry, and also that such things unfortunately happen. She managed to get the car to a protected space and, seeing as it was no more than a short distance away from our van, we were able to find the customer right away. The bad fuel was taken out and she could go home to the Travelodge she was lodging in.

What a great night's uninterrupted sleep! 7:30 am on a rainy Bank Holiday Monday and I was on my way to help an old sweetheart after she had put the wrong fuel in her diesel cream Hyundai Excel in Newport-on-Tay and Wormit. She informed us that she had driven away from the filling station and pulled up on a country road en route to pay a visit to her family. I punched her location straight into the Satnav and was on-scene in less than 60 minutes. I got to the destination and drained the contaminated fuel from the car. While I was doing the work she explained, "Now I'm getting somewhat absent-minded in my old age and didn't remember about the car using diesel as I'd just got it a couple of days ago because my previous car, which I had for more than twenty years, finally died on me". I completed the drain and she gave me a toffee and said thank you. What a lovely Fife lady!

Wrong Fuel in Car Newport-on-Tay and Wormit - Petrol in Diesel Car Newport-on-Tay and Wormit

I'm not ever excessively interested in doing work on weekends, and a couple weeks ago was the same. I had just come away from the family filled with a lovely roast cooked for me by the missus, and I was on the way to assist a guy because he put the incorrect petrol in his yellow Volkswagen Golf III. He was somewhere in Newport-on-Tay and Wormit thus I was with him quickly. Just as I arrived right behind the car and got busy draining he told me "Thank the Lord! I foolishly had my thoughts on something else and didn't grasp that I'd put the wrong fuel in my petrol car. I need to know if I inflicted harm by simply running it?" I revealed generally there probably should not be any damage and also that I'd drain the wrong fuel as soon as possible for him. Needless to say I removed the contaminated fuel from the car and filled it with some appropriate fuel, and then another happy customer was able to continue on his travelling without bother. He did not stop saying thanks to me, and that is what makes carrying out work on Sundays in Fife a little easier for me!

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.
