Just had a good night of uninterrupted sleep! It was 7:00 in the morning on a gloomy Saturday and I was en route to assist an old lady after she had put petrol in her diesel aunt's BMW Z4 in Stonehouse. I'd been advised she had left the filling station forecourt and was stranded in a rural lane en route to see her godchildren. I got her location plugged in the Satnav and got there inside 60 minutes. I got to the destination and drained the wrong fuel from the car. Whilst I was doing the drain she told me, "I am becoming quite absent-minded in my senior years and forgot about the vehicle needing diesel since I'd only just purchased it a week ago after my other car, which I used for about 25 years, inevitably died". I got the job done and she gifted me a Murray mint and thanked me for my work. Such a delightful South Lanarkshire lady!

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.
