It was about 5 pm on a Saturday and despite the fact that we were promised a dry and fresh night, it hadn't given up on raining! Ryan and I were seated discussing the weekend's tennis results, at the ready for the 6th fuel drain for the day to arrive. Inevitably we received a phone call from a woman on a business excursion who had gone to the BP petrol garage in Newton Stewart and put the wrong fuel in a diesel classic Nissan Murano rental. She was somewhat troubled it seemed, saying "I can not believe that I've ruined the car! I'm so accustomed to putting petrol in my petrol vehicle that I totally forgot that I was operating a diesel!" We instructed her to relax and not to fret, also that things like this unfortunately do happen. She had managed to maneuver the car to a safe position and, seeing as it was no more than a short distance away from the office, we were able to arrive at the customer quickly.

We completed a wrong fuel retrieval job near a beautiful residence in Newton Stewart not so long ago. "I put petrol in my diesel car and managed to virtually arrive at home when my car stopped."

Wrong Fuel Doctor Newton Stewart - Fuel Rescue Newton Stewart

A customer driving in Newton Stewart called us after she had managed to get her wrong fuelled vehicle to her office. She had filled petrol in her diesel elegant Volkswagen Eos and, like countless before her, imagined that she would be able to basically top up her tank with diesel and it'd run no problem. The vehicle was spluttering and then it died when she got to the the front of her work. We soon started on the fuel drain after she called and had it resolved within an hour or so while she was at the office. She came outside soon after and thanked us stating, "I'm very happy you repaired my car."

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.
