She was very distressed it seemed, telling me "I can't believe I have ruined the car!

AdBlue In Diesel

What you can do if you may have put AdBlue in your Diesel tank?

AdBlue is a chemical made of a mixture of urea (32.5%) and deionized water (67.5%). AdBlue is certainly disastrous to your car's fuel system, specifically any time you have had the engine running with AdBlue in the diesel fuel tank. Once the engine has been started the AdBlue will likely be dragged into your fuel lines and will quickly start to crystalise, bringing about catastrophic and costly damage to your automobile's fuel system.

Contact us in the event that you are a casualty of AdBlue contamination. We will help. We are Specialists in dealing with contaminated fuel and can correct different types of AdBlue fluid contamination.

Wrong Fuel Assist Elmton - Wrong Fuel in Car Elmton

I had a fantastic evening hiking during my off day and was feeling satisfied with myself the next day as I set out to help a young couple away in Elmton. They had stopped after inserting petrol into their brand new Land Rover Defender 90, and the car was close to an hour away. I got there at their car and smirked to myself as I listened to the gal telling off her spouse for being so silly. "How could you actually find a way to put the wrong fuel in the car?" she demanded of him. I wanted to tell her that this problem occurs all the time in Derbyshire and that it is nothing at all to get worried about, but he all the same had his ear bent by his better half. Unlucky lad. Anyways, I extracted the contaminated fuel, flushed the fuel system and gave them some correct fuel. Watching while they drove off I shouted farewell and pondered on what my missus would do to me in the event that I made the very same error... I'd under no circumstances 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 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.
