It was close to five pm on a Wednesday and even though we were promised a dry day, it hadn't given up on raining! Ryan and I were resting there going over the recent footy results, at the ready for the seventh telephone call that day to arrive. In due time we had the call from a lady on a company trip who had gone to the Texaco petrol garage in Woodside and filled petrol in her diesel canary yellow Vauxhall Movano rental car. She was quite affected it seemed, telling me "I still can't believe that I have destroyed the vehicle! I am so used to putting petrol in my petrol car I had forgot I was using a diesel!" I instructed her to calm down and not to fret, also that these things unfortunately can happen. She was able to relocate the car to a secure position and, as it was no more than a short distance away from our van, we could reach the lady without delay. The wrong fuel was taken out so she could go home to the Travelodge she was staying in. Despite the fact that we got fairly drenched, it was all worth the effort seeing her drive home calm and not so stressed. Another fuel drain in Cheshire done well in my books!

The 3 things you NEED to know about Wrong Fuel!

AdBlue In Your Diesel

All over Cheshire we are finding increasingly more instances of AdBlue contamination where a motorist has put AdBlue directly into their diesel tank. This is mostly due to drivers not knowing how to use it (please note: it's in truth not a fuel additive), and partially due to the fact that the filler caps for diesel and AdBlue are generally directly close to each other on the car.

Well, what's the situation with putting AdBlue in the diesel tank?

As the product is predominantly ionised water, it is actually like pouring water in to your tank. Diesel and water do not ever mix in the least and trying to run a diesel car on water is not going to work. Moreover, the urea is particularly corrosive to fuel system pipes and seals and is more prone to crystallisation, damaging injectors and fuel filters. If you have put AdBlue in the fuel tank remove it immediately. And absolutely take care not to switch on the car - not even to relocate it off the pump. Assuming you have started the car you will very likely need to have the complete fuel system purged and filters changed.

Should you end up in this situation do not panic! Call us, the UK’s Number 1 fuel contamination company. Our experts possess the technical knowledge and working experience to have you back on the road quickly and efficiently, without mess or hassle.

Provided that the boat is either on land, or parked close enough to a car parking bay we can access the storage and drain out the contaminated fuel. We've completed quite a few fuel drains at docks and boatyards in the uk.

The owner of a brand new Ford was sorry that he put the wrong fuel in his diesel car when he got onto the road and it spluttered and broke down.

As you can imagine, our fuel drainer had him again performing his deliveries well within the time we'd estimated.

This was most definitely what is called an unsociable time to be awake. It was around sunrise and almost noone was about. It had been pretty quiet until now, and me and Paul were relaxing browsing a number of old magazines. That was an unusual quiet time in Cheshire. It was that calm that the instant my mobile rang it made me jump! The customer on the phone said: "I've just finished my night shift and stupidly filled petrol in the diesel grass green Toyota Land Cruiser in error". I told him to inform us exactly where the vehicle was situated and we set off, ending up in Woodside only half an hour later. The incorrect fuel was removed from the vehicle. He thanked us for coming out so fast. While we were going back to base we saw two young ladies at the edge of the street who looked like they suffered a flat tyre. Obviously we got out and helped them 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.
