The 3 things you NEED to know about a Misfuel!

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Water contaminated fuel, irrespective of whether it's unleaded petrol or diesel, tends to be a serious situation to address in a car - especially in more modern common-rail engines.

Water or AdBlue in your fuel is going to lead to idling difficulties, lumpy running, abnormal smoke and, if it's not remedied fully, potentially blown injectors. Water in petrol is easier to remove as compared with water in diesel - this is primarily due to the fact that diesel is an oil. Having said that we are able to solve both situations fairly quickly.

Be aware however that whenever the vehicle has been started with the water contaminated fuel it will probably need a new fuel filter to be installed simply because the old one will be totally water-logged and useless.

Motorboat Fuel Drains

If you find you have the wrong fuel, or perhaps contaminated fuel (most commonly water contaminated or degraded fuel) in a boat we can certainly remove it. So long as the boat is either dry-docked, or secured close enough to a motor vehicle parking spot we are able to gain access to the storage and drain out the contaminated fuel. We've successfully done many fuel drains at marinas and boatyards across the country.

Wrong Fuel in Car London - Petrol in Diesel Car Great Budworth

Now I'm certainly not that interested in doing the job Sundays, and a while back was the same. I had just departed home following a fantastic roast made for us by the better half, and I was en route to sort out a gentleman after he filled the incorrect petrol in his modern Peugeot 405. He was situated in Great Budworth therefore it wouldn't be a long time before I reached him. As I drove up behind the vehicle and got out he explained to me "Praise God! I foolishly had my attention on something else and did not realise I have put the wrong fuel in my petrol car. Have I brought about any harm by running it?" I revealed there shouldn't be any kind of problems and that also I would personally get the fuel drained right away. Needless to say I got the fuel drained from the car and put in some suitable fuel, and another contented motorist could continue their ride without difficulty. The gentleman couldn't stop thanking me, and that is actually what helps make operating on weekends in Cheshire a little easier in my opinion!

A woman from Great Budworth with a full car of children in her diesel teal Subaru Impreza WRX had put £20 of petrol at the BP service station. She called us weeping and very distraught as she had never put petrol in a diesel and didn't know what would happen to her car . We assured her that the vehicle would be ok and that she would be back on the road very quickly. When we got there she was visible distressed but as our engineer started work on the fuel drain she calmed down because she noticed that help was at hand and her car wasn't ruined. She quickly cheered up and was on her way saying, "I simply can't believe my bad luck putting petrol in my diesel car! Specifically with the kids on board."

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.

Normal Misfuel Symptoms:

Here is a list of the most common wrong fuel symptoms:

  • Decrease in engine power
  • Engine conking out, stuttering and / or coughing
  • Issues starting the motor
