It was after eight pm on a Friday and although we were promised a rainless day, it hadn't given up on raining! Ray and I were seated there discussing the recent football results, waiting for the 6th call for the day to arrive. Eventually we got a phone call from a young lady on a company excursion who had arrived at the Texaco filling station in Langley Common and filled petrol in her diesel expensive Mitsubishi Pajero hire car. She was somewhat affected it seemed, saying "I simply can't believe I have destroyed the car! I'm just so accustomed to putting unleaded in my petrol car I totally did not remember I was using a diesel!" I instructed her to relax and not to be concerned, and that these things unfortunately can happen. She managed to maneuver the car to a secure spot and, seeing as it was just a few minutes off from us, we were able to find the woman almost instantly. The wrong fuel was cleaned up and removed and she could once again go back to the hotel she was living in. Even though we got really wet, it was all worth it to watch her drive away relaxed and less concerned. A fuel drain in Berkshire done well in my opinion!

The 3 things you HAVE TO know about fuel contamination!

Waste Fuel Removal

Got an old fuel tank in the rear of your premises full of unwanted and old, useless or contaminated fuel? We can assist you to get rid of it. We've been called out to a number of private and business properties in Berkshire to take care of taking away and disposing of fuel storages. We are covered by the Environment Agency to enable us to get rid of and recycle waste fuel safely and legally.

No matter if the fuel storage is an underground tank, a portable bowser, or even a number of containers in a storage shed, if we are able to get to it, we can drain it.

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Water contaminated fuel, no matter whether it's unleaded or diesel, is without question a significant matter to address in an automobile - especially in modern-day common-rail engines.

Water or AdBlue in the petrol or diesel may well cause idling problems, irregular running, excessive smoke and, if it's not taken care of properly, possibly blown injectors. Water in petrol is less difficult to remove as compared with water in diesel - mostly because diesel is an oil. Having said that we are able to solve both situations quite quickly.

Remember though that if the vehicle was run on the fuel contaminated with water it will likely need a new fuel filter fitted since the old one will probably be thoroughly wet and unusable.

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.
