The 3 things you NEED to know about a Misfuel!

AdBlue In Your Diesel

In Buckinghamshire we have encountered progressively more cases of AdBlue contamination where a person has put AdBlue straight into their diesel fuel tank. This is partially due to people not knowing the right way to work with it (pay attention: it is in actual fact not a fuel additive), and in part because the filler caps for diesel and AdBlue are generally right adjacent to one another on the vehicle.

So, exactly what is the trouble with putting AdBlue in a diesel tank?

Since AdBlue is mostly deionised water, it is like pouring water in your tank. Diesel and water really don't mix at all and trying to run a diesel car on water is not going to work. Moreover, the urea is fairly corrosive to the fuel system pipes and seals and is susceptible to crystallisation, blocking injectors and filters. If perhaps you have put AdBlue in the fuel tank drain it asap. And definitely do not turn over the motor - not even to relocate it to a parking place. In the instance that you did start the vehicle you may in all likelihood have to have the entire fuel system flushed and fuel filters changed.

Whenever you discover yourself to be in this predicament don’t fret or panic! Contact us, the UK’s Premium fuel contamination service. Our engineers have got the technical expertise and experience to have you back on the road quickly and efficiently, no mess, no fuss.

Wrong Fuel in Car in HP17 Postcode - Smokey Row Misfueling

Just had a quality night of sleep! 7:00 on a warm Saturday and we were en route to help an older lady after she put petrol in her diesel bright yellow Volkswagen GLI in Smokey Row. I had been advised she had left the filling station forecourt and was pulled up in a backwater road on route to pay a visit to her grandchildren. I popped her location in the TomTom and got there within an hour or so. I turned up at the stricken lady and drained the contaminated fuel in the car vehicle. Whilst I was doing the drain she told me, "I am getting somewhat forgetful in my old age and didn't remember about the vehicle needing diesel because I'd just got it a short while back because my previous car, which I owned for over 25 years, finally gave up the ghost". I got the drain completed and she gave me a peppermint and thanked me for my hard work. What a delightful Buckinghamshire lady!

A motorist had conked out near a street in Smokey Row. His trusty Honda Civic GX engine had stopped functioning and he had no idea what was faulty until he realised he had put petrol in his diesel car. He called us to get a fuel drain and that's when he told us: "I cannot believe that I did not know that I had put the wrong fuel in my vehicle." He said that he had got very little rest the night before and that must have been the reason why.

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.
