The 3 things you HAVE TO know about fuel contamination!

AdBlue Contamination

What you should do if you’ve put AdBlue in a Diesel fuel tank?

AdBlue is a chemical that’s made from a mix of urea (32.5%) and ionized water (67.5%). AdBlue tends to be harmful to your car's fuel system, especially any time you have had the engine running with AdBlue in the diesel fuel tank. The moment the engine has been started up the AdBlue will be injected into your fuel lines and will rapidly begin to crystalise, bringing about disastrous and expensive harm to your car's fuel system.

In case you end up in this predicament don’t panic! Call us, the UK’s Number 1 fuel contamination company. Our engineers possess the technical skills and experience to get you back on your way rapidly and efficiently, without mess or hassle.

Waste Fuel Removal

Got a fuel container laying at the back of the garden containing aged, useless or degraded fuel? We can help you to get rid of it. We've been called out to several privately owned and commercial properties in Berkshire to take care of draining and recycling fuel storages. We are registered by the Environment Agency to enable us to remove and recycle waste fuel legally and safely.

Just picture breaking down in a automobile running on the wrong fuel on the road. We had a customer who put the incorrect fuel in her car (matte black Audi Quattro) in Ashampstead suffered with literally this type of headache: "As you know I incorrectly put unleaded in my diesel car a few days ago. I was so bothered about the wrong fuel in my car that I was actually in tears. And yet I didn't need to worry seeing as you were excellent in sorting the problem out."

A customer driving in Ashampstead called us as soon as she had tried to get her misfueled automobile to work. She had put unleaded in her diesel deep grey Dodge Ram and, like countless before her, assumed that she could just fill the tank with diesel and it would run alright. The engine was spluttering and then it stopped when she got to the the front of her work. We promptly started on the fuel drain following her call and got it sorted in 60 minutes whilst she was in the office. She came out soon after and thanked us stating, "I'm extremely glad you sorted my car."

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 refueled and they will often be able to give you a VAT 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 misfueled 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.
