Wrong Fuel in Car Prestonpans - Petrol in Diesel Car Prestonpans

Now I'm not so keen on running weekends, and 2 weeks ago was the same. I'd just departed home after a magnificent dinner made for us by the missus, and I was en route to sort out a gentleman after he filled the incorrect petrol in his white Hyundai Equus. He was stationed in Prestonpans therefore I was with him very quickly. As I arrived behind the car and got out he told me "Praise the Almighty! I had my attention on stuff and did not grasp that I've put diesel in my petrol vehicle. Have I inflicted any kind of problems by starting it?" I revealed generally there should not be any damage and also that I would get the contaminated fuel drained right away for him. Naturally I got the fuel drained from the car and filled it with the correct fuel, and then yet another pleased customer had the ability to continue on his journey without any fuss. He could not stop saying thanks to me, and this makes earning a living on weekends in East Lothian that tiny bit less painful for me!

A customer working in Prestonpans contacted us shortly after she tried to get her wrong fuelled vehicle to the office.

The vehicle was coughing and then it died when she arrived at the entrance of her work. We soon started on the fuel drain following her call and had it repaired in an hour while she was in the office. She came outside soon after and thanked us stating, "I'm very pleased you fixed 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.
