It was before ten pm on a Thursday and even though we were promised a dry night, it had not given up on raining! Dan and me were relaxing there commenting on the weekend's rugby rankings, ready for the sixth fuel drain to arrive. Eventually we got the phone call from a girl on a company expedition who had arrived at the Tesco petrol station in Westhill and put the wrong fuel in her diesel filthy Suzuki Vitara lease car in error. She was pretty agitated it seemed, crying "I still cannot believe that I have wrecked the car! I'm so used to putting petrol in my petrol vehicle that I totally forgot that I was running a diesel!" We told her to settle back and not to worry, also that such things regrettably often happen. She had managed to maneuver the car to a protected area and, seeing as it was only a few minutes off from the office, we could arrive at the customer almost instantly. The contaminated fuel was taken out and she could go home to the motel she was staying at. Despite the fact we got thoroughly wet, it was all worthwhile to watch her drive away calm and a lot less stressed. One more misfuel correction in Aberdeenshire well done in my opinion!

A customer from Westhill with her children in her diesel blue Peugeot Partner had put £42 of petrol at the Texaco filling station. She contacted us crying and very distraught as she had never filled up with the wrong fuel and did not know what could happen to her car because of it. We reassured her that the car would be fine and that she would be up and running soon. When we arrived on scene she was visible distressed but while our technician got to work on the fuel drain she simmered down as she recognised that something could be done and her vehicle wasn't wrecked.

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.
