The 3 things you HAVE TO know about Wrong Fuel!

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Fuel contaminated with water, whether it is petrol or diesel, is definitely a significant situation to handle in a vehicle - particularly in present-day common-rail engines.

Putting water or AdBlue in fuel tank is going to result in idling issues, lumpy running, increased smoke and, if it is not dealt with correctly, quite possibly ruined injectors. Water in petrol is easier to clean out compared to water in diesel - mainly due to the fact that diesel is an oil. Having said that we are able to take care of both cases pretty easily.

Keep in mind that if the vehicle has been run with the water contamination it will more than likely require a new fuel filter to be fitted since the previous one will be completely water-logged and unusable.

Wrong Fuel in Car in DE45 Postcode - Bakewell Misfueling

Just had a fantastic night of uninterrupted sleep! 7:30 on a sunny Wednesday and I was on the way to help an older lovely lady after she had put petrol in her diesel metallic red Ford Transit Connect in Bakewell. I'd been told she had driven away from the petrol station forecourt and was pulled up on a rural road on the way to visit her godchildren. I popped the location in the Satnav and was with her in less than an hour or so. I arrived at the destination and extracted the wrong fuel out of the car. As I was doing it she said, "I have been becoming rather absent-minded in my senior years and did not remember about the vehicle needing diesel seeing that I'd just purchased it several days ago right after my other car, which I'd owned for more than thirty years, finally died on me". I got the job done and she presented me a Murray mint and said thank you. Such a lovely Derbyshire woman!

It truly was an unsociable time to be on the road. It was about dawn and noone was around. It was pretty quiet thus far, and me and Ray were loafing perusing a couple of old magazines. This was an uncommon tranquil hour in Derbyshire. Actually it was in fact so quiet that when my mobile eventually rang I leaped with surprise! The voice on the phone told me: "I finished my overnight shift and stupidly filled petrol in my canary yellow VW Tiguan". We got him to inform us where exactly the vehicle was situated and we headed out, reaching him in Bakewell less than 30 minutes later. The contaminated fuel was taken out from the motor. He thanked us profusely for showing up so quickly. While we were heading back to the depot we found two ladies at the side of the road who looked like they suffered a flat. As a result we pulled up to help them change it, to their delight.

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.
