In due time we got a call from a lovely women on a company trip who had gone to the Esso filling garage in Lower Knowle and put petrol in her diesel mate's Volvo XC60 rental in error. She was quite agitated by the sounds of it, stating "I still can't believe that I have ruined the vehicle! I am so familiar with filling my petrol vehicle that I totally didn't remember that I was operating a diesel!" I instructed her to calm down and not to fret, also that things like this regrettably often happen. She managed to get the vehicle into a protected spot and, since it was only a few minutes away from the office, we could get to the woman fairly quickly. The bad fuel was removed and she could once again go back to the Premier Inn she was lodging at. Even though we got extremely soaked, it was all rewarding to see her drive away calm and less worried.

The 3 things you HAVE TO know about fuel contamination!

We can easily help to refill your vehicle in the event that you are having difficulty on the motorway, roadside far from a petrol station, or just at your home. Our technicians can attend with 10-20 litres of the correct fuel (at pump price) to refill your vehicle. They are also able to handle any of the most common troubles that may go with running out of fuel - including airlocks, vehicle not restarting, , or even flat batteries as a result of over-cranking.

AdBlue In your Fuel

All around Bristol we are noticing a growing number of instances of AdBlue contamination when a motorist has poured AdBlue into their diesel tank. This is partly as a result of people not understanding the right way to work with it (remember: it's in reality not a fuel additive), and in part because the filler caps for diesel and AdBlue are frequently directly adjacent to one another on the vehicle.

Well, precisely what is the issue with putting AdBlue in your diesel car?

Seeing that the product is primarily deionised water, it's just like pouring water in to your tank. Diesel and water don't blend in any way and trying to run a diesel car on water isn't going to work. In addition to this, the urea is very corrosive to your fuel system lines and seals and is more prone to crystalising, obstructing injectors and filters. In the event that you have put AdBlue in the fuel tank empty it right away. And of course don't switch on the motor - not even to move it from the pump. In the instance that you have started the car you will likely have to have the entire fuel system flushed and filters replaced.

Give us a call in the event that you are affected by AdBlue contamination. We can certainly help. We are Contaminated Fuel Specialists and can easily correct all types of AdBlue liquid contamination.

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.
