The 3 things you HAVE TO know about Wrong Fuel!

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Fuel contaminated with water, regardless of whether it is unleaded petrol or diesel, is undoubtedly a serious condition to deal with in a car - particularly in modern-day common-rail engines.

Water or AdBlue in your fuel may well contribute to idling issues, lumpy running, excessive smoke and, if it is not taken care of properly, potentially broken injectors. Having water in petrol is quicker to clean out than water in diesel - this is mostly because diesel is an oil. Nevertheless we are able to deal with both situations fairly simply.

Keep in mind though that as long as the vehicle has been started with the water contaminated fuel it will quite possible need a new fuel filter to be installed seeing that the previous one will probably be completely water-logged and unusable.

This was certainly what is called the night shift. It was roughly dawn and noone was about. It was fairly dead up to now, and Brian and I were loafing about perusing a number of old magazines. It was an unusual peaceful hour in Buckinghamshire. It was in fact so quiet that the moment my mobile inevitably rang it made me start! The person on the other end told me: "I have just finished my evening shift and stupidly filled petrol in a diesel deep grey Volvo960 in error". We asked him to tell us just where he was and we headed out, getting to him in Filgrave no more than half an hour later. The incorrect fuel was taken out from the motor and he said thank you for arriving so promptly. While we were coming back home we spotted two young ladies at the edge of the highway who looked like they had a flat tyre. As a result we stopped and helped them change it, much to their elation.

How to find out if I put the wrong fuel in my car?

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.
