The 3 things you MUST know about petrol in diesel!

Boat Fuel Drains

If it turns out there is the wrong fuel, or perhaps contaminated fuel (most commonly water contamination or degraded fuel) in a boat we can help you remove it. Provided that the boat is either dry-docked, or moored close to a car parking bay we should be able to gain access to the fuel storage tanks and drain out the contaminated fuel. We have performed numerous fuel drains at marinas and boatyards throughout the country.

AdBlue In Your Diesel

All over Cambridgeshire we have seen an increasing number of examples of AdBlue contamination when a motorist has poured AdBlue inside their diesel tank. This is to some extent caused by drivers not understanding the way to use it (remember: it's not a fuel additive), and partially because the inlets for diesel and AdBlue are usually right near to each other on the car.

Well, precisely what is the trouble with having AdBlue in the diesel car?

Seeing as the product is predominantly ionised water, it is actually like pouring water into your tank. Diesel and water really do not blend at all and trying to run a diesel car on water will never work. In addition, the urea is quite corrosive to your fuel system pipes and seals and is more prone to crystalising, clogging injectors and filters. If perhaps you poured AdBlue into the fuel tank get it drained asap. And absolutely take care not to start the car - not even to relocate it to a parking bay. In the event that you have started the vehicle you may in all probability need to have the entire fuel system cleaned and filters changed.

Give us a call if it turns out you are a casualty of AdBlue contamination. We can assist. We are Specialists in dealing with contaminated fuel and can easily take care of every type of AdBlue contamination.

Wrong Fuel in Car in SG19 Postcode - Tetworth Misfueling

Just had a quality night of uninterrupted sleep! 7:30 am on a rainy Sunday and I was on the way to assist an elder lady after she had put contaminated fuel in her diesel dark red Renault Clio in Tetworth. She told us that she had left the petrol station forecourt and was broken down on a rural lane on route to visit her grandchildren. I got the location punched straight into the Satnav and got there inside an hour. I reached the vehicle and removed the wrong fuel out of the car. While I was working she said, "I am getting quite absent-minded in my old age and forgot about the car taking diesel as I had just bought it a couple of days ago after my other car, which I used for more than twenty years, eventually died on me". I got the drain completed and she gifted me a toffee and said thanks a lot. Such a precious Cambridgeshire woman!

And so, in case you have topped up your petrol automobile with diesel, or the wrong fuel in your diesel automobile just about anywhere in Cambridgeshire, phone us right away. Our professional technicians are all set for you.

A man called us from Tetworth to say he piped unleaded in his diesel partner's Volkswagen GTI. "Shocking! How could I put unleaded in my nice diesel car!" It only took the technician roughly 50 minutes to completely drain the contaminated fuel from the car. He completely flushed the fuel lines, filter and pumps and after that put clean diesel in the vehicle. The customer was delighted and it didn't cost him dealership prices to have the work properly done.

Wrong Fuel in Car London - Petrol in Diesel Car Tetworth

A teenager who had only got his licence had wrong fueled his red Volvo S60 by getting unleaded in his diesel vehicle at the petrol station close to Tetworth. He said, "This is just the third occasion I have put fuel in my vehicle since I bought it and I do not know what to do." He was also worried since his father had just recently purchased him the car. He discovered us on the net and so called it without delay, worried about what he should do. Our man on the telephones explained to him that we would be on scene inside forty five minutes and to not touch his car while he waited. We did the drain on his vehicle and he said how astonished he was it was addressed so rapidly and with not much problem at all.

This was most definitely what we call an unsociable time to be on the road. It was roughly 2 in the morning and nobody was stirring. It had been rather quiet so far, and me and Mark were sitting about perusing some old papers. This was an unusual quiet time in Cambridgeshire. Actually it was so peaceful that when the phone eventually rang it made me start! The person on the opposite end explained: "I have concluded my overnight shift and stupidly filled petrol in my father's Toyota Sequoia in error". We got him to tell us where the car was located and we headed out, reaching him in Tetworth under an hour or so later. The fuel was cleaned up and removed from the engine and he thanked us for coming so promptly. While we were coming back to the office we spotted two young women at the side of the road who looked like they had a puncture. Accordingly we stopped to change it, much to their elation.

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.
