We're merely a call away.

It was about 10 pm on a Wednesday and despite the fact that we were promised a dry and fresh afternoon, it hadn't ceased pouring! Mark and I were sitting there discussing the weekend's football rankings, prepared for the 6th job of the day to arrive. Inevitably we received the call from a lovely women on a business trip who had pulled into the Texaco petrol station in Stratton and filled the wrong fuel in her diesel wife's Mazda B2000 hire car by mistake. She was quite distressed it seemed, telling me "I simply cannot believe that I have ruined the vehicle! I am just so familiar with filling my petrol vehicle I had didn't remember I was running a diesel!" I advised her to take it easy and not to be concerned, also that such things often happen. She had managed to move the car to a protected area and, seeing as it was only a short distance off from where we were, we could reach the customer fairly quickly. The bad fuel was taken out and she was able to go home to the Premier Inn she was lodging at. Even though we got fairly soaked, it was all rewarding to watch her drive away relaxed and less anxious. Another misfuel correction in Dorset well done in my books!

The 3 things you HAVE TO know about Wrong Fuel!

AdBlue Contamination

In Dorset we are identifying progressively more instances of AdBlue contamination wherein somebody has poured AdBlue inside their diesel tank. This is mostly as a result of drivers being unsure of the way to work with it (note: it's not a fuel additive), and in part because the filler necks for diesel and AdBlue are normally right next to each other on the car.

Well, what is the matter with having AdBlue in a diesel car?

Since AdBlue is mostly deionised water, it is just like putting water into your tank. Diesel and water do not mix in the slightest and attempting to run a diesel car on water is not going to work. In addition, the urea is incredibly corrosive to fuel system hoses and seals and is prone to crystalising, damaging injectors and fuel filters. If perhaps you have put AdBlue in the fuel tank drain it as soon as possible. And of course be careful not to switch on the motor - not even to relocate it into a parking place. In cases where you have started the vehicle you will almost certainly have to have the entire fuel system flushed and filters changed.

If you get in this situation do not fret or panic! Contact us, the UK’s Best fuel contamination service. Our experts possess the specialised expertise and experience to have you back on the road promptly and efficiently, no mess, no hassle.

Wrong Fuel Assist Stratton - Wrong Fuel in Car Stratton

A week ago a driver telephoned us right after his apple green Mitsubishi 3000GT stopped along a street in Stratton. He had by mistake put petrol in his diesel motor and drove to the road before being forced to pull up. It was still in the early hours of the day and our fuel drainer, who stays close by, was with him in less than 20 minutes. We were able to drain the incorrect fuel and put clean diesel yet again in to the vehicle. "Thank you for your immediate response, particularly at 6 a.m., I really am grateful for it."

A lady from Stratton with her kids in her diesel rugged Range Rover Classic had filled her vehicle with £50 of petrol at the Sainsburys station. She phoned us crying and extremely distraught as she had never wrong fueled before and did not know what could happen to her car because of it. We told her that everything should be okay and that she would be on the road very quickly. When we arrived she was visible upset but as our technician began work on the fuel drain she calmed down because she saw that something could be done and her car wasn't unfixable. She soon cheered up and was up and running saying, "I really can't believe my bad luck putting the wrong fuel in my vehicle! Specifically with the kids in the back."

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.
