We a few weeks ago got a call from a guy who had put the incorrect fuel in his worn-out Audi R8 in Winchburgh. He had conked out on the road.

I was happy due to both how quick you were and your price". It goes without saying that we showed up promptly and purged the engine after draining the contaminated fuel from the diesel tank.

A woman from Winchburgh with a full car of youngsters in her diesel son's Hyundai had put £40 of petrol at the Shell filling station. She phoned us weeping and very worried as she had never wrong fuelled previously and did not know what might happen to her car because of it. We assured her that everything would be fine and that she would be ready to go in no time at all. When we got there she was visible distressed but as our engineer began work on the fuel drain she simmered down since she noticed that help was at hand and her vehicle wasn't ruined. She soon brightened up and was on her way saying, "I can't believe my luck putting petrol in my diesel car! Particularly 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.
