The 3 things you SHOULD know about Wrong Fuel!

AdBlue Contamination

In Berkshire we have found a lot more occurrences of AdBlue contamination where an individual has put AdBlue right into their diesel tank. This is in part stemming from motorists not knowing how to work with it (important: it is not a fuel additive), and partly due to the fact that the inlets for diesel and AdBlue are frequently directly close to each other on the vehicle.

So, exactly what is the issue with having AdBlue in the diesel tank?

Because AdBlue is mainly ionised water, it's like pouring water in your tank. Diesel and water don't mix in any way and trying to run a diesel car on water cannot work. Also, the urea is extremely corrosive to the fuel system hoses and seals and is more prone to crystalising, clogging injectors and fuel filters. Assuming you put AdBlue in the fuel tank get it out at once. And of course be careful not to turn over the car - not even to relocate it from the pump. If perhaps you have started the vehicle you would most likely need to have the complete fuel system purged and fuel filters changed.

If you find yourself in this scenario don’t panic! Contact us, the UK’s Best fuel contamination company. Our engineers possess the technical know-how and working experience to get you back on your way promptly and efficiently, no mess, no fuss.

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.
