It was just before six pm on a Wednesday and despite the fact that we were promised a dry evening, it hadn't ceased raining! Paul and me were relaxing talking about the weekend's sports rankings, prepared for the 8th call that day to arrive. In due time we got the phone call from a girl on a company excursion who had arrived at the Texaco petrol station in West Kilbride and put petrol in her diesel rugged Vauxhall lease car by mistake. She was somewhat agitated by the sounds of it, saying "I can't believe I have wrecked the vehicle! I'm just so used to filling up my petrol vehicle I completely didn't remember that I was driving a diesel!" I just told her to settle back and not to be concerned, also that such things often happen. She had managed to get the vehicle to a safe position and, as it was only a few miles away from our van, we were able to reach her quickly. The wrong fuel was cleaned up and removed so she was able to once again go back to the motel she was residing in. Even though we got really drenched, it was all rewarding to watch her drive off calm and much less apprehensive. Yet another job in North Ayrshire done well in my opinion!

Wrong Fuel in Car West Kilbride - West Kilbride Misfuelling

What a quality night of sleep! It was 7:00 on a sunny Tuesday and I was on the way to assist an old lovely lady after she put the wrong fuel in her diesel dirty red Peugeot 2008 in West Kilbride. She told us that she had driven away from the petrol station forecourt and was stranded in a rural lane on route to see her grandchildren. I punched her location straight into the TomTom and was on-scene in less than an hour or so. I got to the stricken lady and extracted the contaminated fuel from the vehicle. Whilst I was doing the drain she told me, "I am getting rather absent-minded in my old age and didn't remember about the car using diesel because I'd only got it a week back after my previous one, which I'd had for in excess of 25 years, eventually gave up the ghost". I finished the job and she gave me a peppermint and thanked me for my work. Such a lovely North Ayrshire lady!

A customer had stopped off a road in West Kilbride. His expensive Dodge Ram engine had ceased working and he had no idea what was faulty right up until he realised he had put petrol in his diesel vehicle. He contacted us to request a fuel drain and that's when he informed us: "I can't believe that I didn't detect that I put the incorrect fuel in my vehicle." He said that he had got virtually no rest the night before and that must have been the reason why.

A lady from West Kilbride with her youngsters in her diesel clean white Renault Scenic had filled her car with £30 of petrol at the Shell service station. She phoned us sobbing and genuinely distraught as she had never wrong fuelled and did not know what would happen to her car . We told her that everything would be alright and that she would be in action in no time at all. When we got there she was still upset but while our engineer got to work on the fuel drain she simmered down as she noticed that something could be done and her car wasn't unfixable. She soon cheered up and was up and running saying, "I really can't believe my misfortune putting the wrong fuel in my car! Especially with the kids in the back."

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.
