It was about six pm on a Wednesday and while we were promised a rainless afternoon, it hadn't given up on raining! Mark and I were relaxing there going over the football, at the ready for the seventh job that day to come in. Finally we received a phone call from a lovely woman on a company expedition who had arrived at the Esso petrol station in Tarbolton and filled petrol in a diesel cobalt blue BMW 645 lease car in error. The poor thing was rather distressed apparently, stating "I can't believe that I have ruined the car! I am just so used to putting petrol in my petrol vehicle I completely forgot that I was operating a diesel!" I asked her to calm down and not to fret, also that these things sadly happen. She managed to move the vehicle to a safe position and, seeing that it was just a few minutes away from us, we could reach the customer swiftly. The incorrect fuel was cleaned up and removed and she was able to go home to the motel she was staying at. Although we got thoroughly drenched, it was all worth the effort to watch her drive off satisfied and less stressed. Another fuel drain in South Ayrshire done well in my opinion!

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.
