Wrong Fuel in Car Strathblane - Strathblane Misfuelling

Just had a quality night of sleep! 7:30 in the morning on a warm Wednesday and I was on the way to assist an elder lovely lady who had put petrol in her diesel maroon Subaru Impreza in Strathblane. I'd been told she drove away from the petrol station forecourt and was pulled up in a country lane along the way to visit her godchildren. I popped the location straight into the Satnav and was with her within an hour or so. I turned up at the location and removed the wrong fuel from the vehicle. As I was doing the drain she told me, "I am getting fairly forgetful in my old age and forgot about the vehicle needing diesel because I'd only just got it a week back when my previous car, which I'd used for in excess of 30 years, inevitably died". I got the drain completed and she gave me a peppermint and said thank you. Such a delightful Stirling 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.
