It was just after five pm on a Saturday and despite the fact that we were assured a rainless evening, it hadn't stopped raining! Paul and I were relaxing talking over the recent golf rankings, waiting for the 8th telephone call of the day to arrive. In due time we had a phone call from a young lady on a business trip who had arrived at the Sainsburys petrol station in Ratho and filled the wrong fuel in a diesel gorgeous Volkswagen Beetle hire car in error. The poor lady was quite irritated by the sounds of it, crying "I simply can't believe that I have destroyed the vehicle! I'm so accustomed to filling my petrol vehicle I had didn't remember that I was running a diesel!" We advised her to relax and not to worry, plus that such things happen. She had managed to relocate the vehicle to a safe area and, since it was just a short distance off from our van, we could find her right away. The incorrect fuel was extracted so she was able to get back to the Premier Inn she was living at. Despite the fact we got thoroughly wet, it was all worthwhile to watch her drive home relaxed and much less apprehensive. Yet another fuel drain in City of Edinburgh well done in my books!

Wrong Fuel in Car Ratho - Petrol in Diesel Car Ratho

Just picture breaking down in a vehicle contaminated with the improper fuel in the middle of the street. Our most recent customer who filled her car with the incorrect fuel (wife's Smart Car) in Ratho suffered from precisely this kind of issue: "Your engineer moved my car from the live lane.

A young lady employed in Ratho contacted us as soon as she tried to get her wrong fuelled vehicle to the office. She had put the wrong fuel in her diesel faithful BMW 650 and, like many before her, imagined that she could simply fill up her vehicle with diesel and it'd be alright. The vehicle was coughing and then it cut out when she reached the the front of her work. We immediately went to work on the fuel drain following her call and had it repaired inside an hour or so whilst she was working. She came outside soon after and thanked us stating, "I'm really relieved you repaired my vehicle."

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.
