Wrong Fuel in Car West Linton - Petrol in Diesel Car West Linton

Now I am not necessarily too inclined to running on weekends, and a week ago was no different. I had just departed the family filled with a fantastic lunch cooked for me by the better half, and I was off to deal with a fellow who filled the wrong fuel in his work's BMW Z4 M. He was stationed in West Linton hence it wouldn't be a long time before I got to him. Just as I pulled up behind the car and stepped out he explained to me "Praise God! I incredibly had my concentration on other stuff and did not perceive I had put diesel in my petrol vehicle. Have I brought about any kind of damage because of starting it?" I revealed there probably should not be any damage and that also I would remove the fuel quickly for him. Obviously I drained the contaminated fuel from the vehicle and filled up with some correct fuel, and so one more delighted customer was able to continue on their ride without any subsequent difficulty. The man did not stop saying thanks to me, and this tends to make earning a living on weekends in Scottish Borders just a tiny bit easier for me!

A young lady from West Linton with her little ones in her diesel beloved Subaru Impreza WRX had filled her vehicle with £50 of petrol at the Sainsburys filling station. She contacted us weeping and extremely distraught as she had never wrong fuelled and did not know what would happen to her car because of it. We assured her that all would be alright and that she would be back ready to go very quickly. When we got there she was still distressed but as our technician began work on the fuel drain she simmered down as she saw that something could be done and her car wasn't wrecked. She quickly brightened up and was on her way saying, "I just can't believe my misfortune putting the wrong fuel in my car! 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.
