It was just before six pm on a Saturday and even though we were promised a rainless day, it hadn't given up on raining! James and I were relaxing commenting on the weekend's golf results, prepared for the 6th fuel drain to come in. Inevitably we got the phone call from a lovely women on a company expedition who had gone to the BP filling station in Sanquhar and filled petrol in a diesel dirty red Toyota Yaris lease car. She was pretty agitated by the sounds of it, telling me "I still cannot believe that I have destroyed the vehicle! I'm so used to filling up my petrol vehicle that I had didn't remember that I was running a diesel!" We advised her to calm down and not to fret, plus that these things unfortunately can happen. She managed to relocate the vehicle into a protected spot and, as it was no more than a short distance from us, we were able to get to the lady fairly quickly. The incorrect fuel was removed and she could go home to the Travelodge she was living at. Even though we got extremely drenched, it was all rewarding seeing her drive home calm and a lot less apprehensive. Another fuel drain in Dumfries and Galloway done well in my books!

Wrong Fuel Assist Sanquhar - Wrong Fuel in Car Sanquhar

I had enjoyed a fantastic day fishing on the weekend and was feeling cheerful the following morning as I set off to aid a young family on vacation in Sanquhar. They broken down after putting the wrong fuel in their compact Peugeot 3008, and they were approximately an hour's travel away. I showed up at their location and smirked as I listened to the girl telling her husband off for being so daft. "Just how could you actually manage to fill the car up using the wrong fuel?" she asked him. I attempted to clarify that this kind of thing comes to pass all the time in Dumfries and Galloway and that it's absolutely nothing to stress about, even so he still had an ear bashing. Unfortunate guy. In any case, I drained out all of the polluted fuel, gave the motor a flush and gave them some proper fuel. Watching while they drove away I shouted farewell and wondered what my missus would tell me in the event that I made the exact same mistake... I would personally never ever hear the end of it!

A lady from Sanquhar with a full car of youngsters in her diesel customised Vauxhall Insignia had filled her car with £40 of petrol at the Shell petrol station. She contacted us crying and very upset as she had never put petrol in a diesel car and didn't know what could happen to her vehicle in doing so. We assured her that the vehicle should be fine and that she would be on the road soon. When we got there she was visible upset but as our technician got to work on the fuel drain she calmed down since she recognised that something could be done and her vehicle wasn't wrecked. She soon enough brightened up and was on the road again saying, "I really can't believe my misfortune putting the wrong fuel in my vehicle! Especially with the children on board."

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.
