Wrong Fuel in Car Penicuik - Penicuik Misfuelling

Ahhh, that was a fantastic night of sleep! 7:00 on a warm Bank Holiday Monday and we were on the way to assist an elder lovely lady who put petrol in her diesel dilapidated Suzuki Grand Vitara in Penicuik. I'd been informed she drove away from the petrol station and broken down along a country lane on the way to pay a visit to her grandchildren. I plugged her location into the Satnav and was on-scene within 60 minutes. I reached the destination and drained the wrong fuel from the car. Whilst I was doing the drain she explained, "I'm becoming rather forgetful in my senior years and did not remember about the car using diesel as I had only acquired it a week back when my other one, which I had used for over twenty years, inevitably gave up the ghost". I got the job done and she gifted me a peppermint and said thanks a lot. Such a delightful Midlothian woman!

Wrong Fuel in Car Penicuik - Petrol in Diesel Car Penicuik

We a few weeks ago got a phone call from a motorist who put the incorrect fuel in his son's Vauxhall in Penicuik. He had broken down on the street. "After adding petrol in my diesel car I didn't discover the dilemma till the time it conked out. You took the wrong fuel from my car and got it working . I was impressed because of both how quick you were and your rates". Needless to say we appeared promptly and purged the engine after draining all of the unleaded from the diesel tank. On arrival the engineer said the motorist was fuming, but was grinning his face off when we finished.

This was exactly an unsociable time to be on the road. It was about dawn and nobody was about. It was quite quiet up to now, and me and Ryan were sitting looking at a couple of old magazines. It was a rare peaceful moment in Midlothian. It was so tranquil that the moment the telephone ultimately rang it made me start! The person stated: "I only just finished my evening shift and incredibly poured petrol in a diesel brother's Subaru Impreza WRX by mistake". We got him to let us know where the vehicle was located and we headed out, reaching him in Penicuik 30 minutes later. The contaminated fuel was extracted from the vehicle and he thanked us profusely for coming so fast. While we were heading back home we noticed two young ladies at the edge of the road who seemed like they had a flat. Accordingly we stopped to change it, to their elation.

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.
