It was about eight pm on a Thursday and despite the fact that we were promised a dry and fresh evening, it hadn't stopped pouring down rain! Brian and I were relaxing talking over the weekend's sports results, ready for the 8th job for the day to come in. Eventually we got the call from a lovely woman on a company expedition who had gone to the Shell petrol garage in Shell Green and put the wrong fuel in her diesel mum's Renault Clio hire car. The unfortunate thing was quite irritated by the sounds of it, saying "I can't believe I've ruined the car! I'm just so accustomed to filling up my petrol vehicle I completely forgot that I was running a diesel!" I just told her to calm down and not to worry, plus that these things do happen. She was able to relocate the vehicle to a protected spot and, seeing as it was only a few miles from the office, we were able to reach the customer fairly quickly. The wrong fuel was drained and she was able to go home to the hotel she was staying in. Despite the fact we got very drenched, it was all rewarding to see her drive away satisfied and less worried. A misfuel correction in Cheshire done well in my books!

The 3 things you MUST know about petrol in diesel!

Waste Fuel Removal

Got a fuel container in the rear of your garden with unwanted and old, unusable or degraded fuel? We can help you to get rid of it. We have been called out to quite a few domestic and commercial premises in Cheshire to deal with draining and disposing of fuel storages. We are registered by the Environment Agency to enable us to extract and recycle waste fuel safely and legally.

No matter if the fuel storage is a subterranean tank, a portable bowser, or perhaps even a number of containers in a storage shed, provided that we are able to access it, we could certainly drain it.

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Water contaminated fuel, no matter whether it is petrol or diesel, is in many cases an important situation to take care of in a vehicle - particularly in more modern common-rail engines.

Water or AdBlue in the fuel tank can potentially result in idling problems, uneven running, abnormal smoke and, if it is not dealt with properly, in some cases damaged injectors. Having water in petrol is quicker to get rid of as compared with water in diesel - mainly due to the fact that diesel is an oil. Even so we are able to solve both situations pretty simply.

Bear in mind though that if the vehicle was started with the water contamination it will most likely require a new fuel filter fitted because the previous one will probably be thoroughly water-logged and unusable.

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.
