It was about 10 pm on a Wednesday and while we were guaranteed a rainless night, it hadn't stopped pouring! Mark and me were seated discussing the weekend's tennis rankings, prepared for the next call that day to come in. In due time we got the phone call from a lady on a company excursion who had pulled into the Shell filling station in East Moulsecoomb and filled the wrong fuel in a diesel dark red Land Rover Freelander II hire car by mistake. She was pretty troubled apparently, telling me "I cannot believe I've messed up the car! I am just so accustomed to filling up my petrol car that I completely didn't remember I was using a diesel!" I advised her to take it easy and not to worry, also that things like this can happen. She managed to maneuver the vehicle into a protected area and, because it was no more than a few miles from where we were, we were able to arrive at the customer fairly quickly. The wrong fuel was cleaned up and removed and she could get back to the Travelodge she was living in. Despite the fact that we got fairly soaked, it was all worth the time seeing her drive home contented and a lot less concerned. A job in East Sussex done well in my books!

The 3 things you SHOULD know about a Misfuel!

Run Out of Fuel Service

Run out of fuel in East Moulsecoomb (out of gas - as an American might say)? We operate a full East Sussex Run Out of Fuel Service. We can help to refill your vehicle in cases where you are stuck on a motorway, roadside far from a petrol station, or even at your home. Our technicians can come to you with 10-20 litres of the right fuel (acquired at pump price) to refill your automobile. They will deal with any of the standard troubles that can go with running out of fuel - such as airlocks, vehicle not restarting, , or maybe flat batteries resulting from over-cranking.

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Fuel contaminated with water, whether it's unleaded petrol or diesel, can be a serious matter to deal with in an automobile - especially in modern-day common-rail engines.

Putting water or AdBlue in your petrol or diesel may well contribute to idling issues, irregular running, excessive smoke and, if it is not taken care of properly, potentially ruined injectors. Water in petrol is easier to get rid of in comparison with water in diesel - this is primarily because diesel is an oil. Even so we are able to resolve both situations pretty expediently.

Keep in mind that if ever the vehicle has been started on the water contamination it will likely require a new fuel filter fitted because the old one will probably be thoroughly wet and unusable.

    • Engine coughing or starting to splutter
