The 3 things you MUST know about Wrong Fuel!

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Fuel contaminated with water, irrespective of whether it is unleaded petrol or diesel, is undoubtedly a significant condition to address in a car - specifically in modern-day common-rail engines.

Having water or AdBlue inside your diesel or petrol will contribute to idling issues, uneven running, excessive smoke and, if it is not remedied correctly, possibly damaged injectors. Water in petrol is quicker to clean out compared to water in diesel - this is primarily because diesel is an oil. Nevertheless we can deal with both situations pretty easily.

Be aware though that if the vehicle was started on the water contaminated fuel it will most likely need a new fuel filter to be fitted because the old one is going to be totally water-logged and unusable.

I had appreciated a great afternoon golfing on the weekend and felt delighted with myself the next working day as I set out to aid a new family on vacation in Barningham. They'd stopped after adding diesel into their dad's Audi A7, and were approximately an hour's travel away. I arrived at their car and smiled to myself while I heard to the gal chastising her partner for being so confused. "Exactly how could you even be able to put the wrong fuel in the car?" she demanded of him. I tried to explain that this comes to pass regularly in County Durham and that it's nothing to fret about, but he in spite of everything got his ear bent by his better half. Unlucky guy. Anyway, I removed all of the contaminated fuel, gave the motor a flush and gave it some appropriate fuel. Watching while they drove down the road I waved so long and thought about what her indoors would tell me if perhaps I did the very same thing... I would never live it down!

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 VA 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.
