It was just after five pm on a Thursday and though we were promised a rainless day, it hadn't stopped raining! Dan and me were sitting talking about the footy results, waiting around for the 6th telephone call to come in. Eventually we had a phone call from a young lady on a company trip who had pulled into the Sainsburys petrol garage in Idridgehay and filled the wrong fuel in her diesel elegant Mitsubishi Diamante rental car in error. The poor thing was very irritated apparently, saying "I cannot believe that I have messed up the car! I'm so used to filling up my petrol car that I had did not remember that I was driving a diesel!" We instructed her to settle back and not to worry, and also that these things can happen. She had managed to maneuver the vehicle to a secure position and, because it was only a few miles away from us, we could get to the customer rather quickly.

The 3 things you MUST know about fuel contamination!

Waste Fuel Removal

Got an old fuel container placed in the rear of the garden full of out of date, unusable or contaminated fuel? We can assist you to get rid of it. We have been called out to quite a few domestic and business premises in Derbyshire for the purpose of removing and recycling fuel storages. We are covered by the Environment Agency to enable us to extract and dispose of waste fuel legally and safely.

Regardless of whether the fuel storage is an underground reservoir, a mobile bowser, or perhaps some containers in a garage, provided that we can reach it, we are able to empty it.

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Water contaminated fuel, no matter whether it's unleaded petrol or diesel, is without question a significant matter to handle in an automobile - specifically in present-day common-rail engines.

Putting water or AdBlue in your fuel may well produce idling issues, irregular running, increased smoke and, if not remedied correctly, oftentimes damaged injectors. Having water in petrol is less complicated to get rid of as compared with water in diesel - largely due to the fact that diesel is an oil. In spite of this we can deal with both cases very expediently.

Remember however that if ever the vehicle was run with the fuel contaminated with water it will very likely need a new fuel filter fitted seeing as the previous one will undoubtedly be completely water-logged and useless.

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.
