It was before 7 pm on a Monday and though we were promised a dry afternoon, it hadn't stopped pouring down rain! Mark and I were sitting going over the recent football, waiting around for the next fuel drain that day to arrive. Eventually we received the call from a woman on a company trip who had gone to the Tesco filling garage in Frodsham and put the wrong fuel in her diesel partner's Volvo XC70 hire car in error. She was pretty agitated apparently, crying "I cannot believe I've destroyed the vehicle! I am just so used to putting petrol in my petrol vehicle that I completely forgot I was using a diesel!" I just instructed her to calm down and not to be concerned, and also that things like this sadly often happen. She was able to relocate the vehicle into a safe area and, since it was just a few miles away from where we were, we could reach her right away. The incorrect fuel was drained and she could return to the Travelodge she was living at. Even though we got very soaked, it was all worth it seeing her drive home relaxed and a lot less concerned. Another misfuel correction in Cheshire well done in my opinion!

The 3 things you HAVE TO know about Wrong Fuel!

Boat Fuel Drains

If you find you've got the wrong fuel, or perhaps contaminated fuel (most typically water contaminated or old fuel) in a boat we can help you drain it. Assuming that the boat is either dry-docked, or secured close enough to an automobile parking spot we can gain access to the fuel tanks and remove the fuel. We've done quite a few fuel drains at docks and boatyards across the country.

AdBlue In your Fuel

What you can do if you have put AdBlue in a Diesel tank?

AdBlue is a liquid made out of a blend of urea (32.5%) and deionized water (67.5%). It is certainly harmful to your automobile's fuel system, specifically in cases where you have had the engine running with AdBlue in the diesel fuel tank. As soon as the engine has been started up the AdBlue will undoubtedly be dragged into the fuel lines and will swiftly start to crystalise, bringing about disastrous and costly damage to your vehicle's fuel system.

Phone us if it turns out you have experienced AdBlue contamination. We can help. We are Contaminated Fuel Specialists and can take care of every type of AdBlue liquid contamination.

Wrong Fuel Assist Frodsham - Wrong Fuel in Car Frodsham

I enjoyed a great day fishing on my holiday and was feeling contented the next morning as I was on the way to assist a young couple holidaying in Frodsham. They broken down after putting petrol in their precious Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500, and the car was about an hour's travel away. I arrived at their location and smiled while I listened to the girl telling her partner off for turning out to be so stupid. "Precisely how could you possibly find a way to put the wrong fuel in the vehicle?" she told him. I tried to explain that this problem occurs on a regular basis in Cheshire and that it's nothing at all to be anxious about, even so he all the same had his ear bent by his missus. I felt genuine sympathy for the lad. Anyhow, I extracted the polluted fuel, gave the fuel system a flush and filled it up with the proper fuel. As they drove off I mouthed farewell and wondered what my missus would ask me if ever I made the same error... I'd personally never ever hear the end of it!

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.
