They will handle the usual troubles that may come with running out of fuel - including airlocks, vehicle not restarting, , and even flat batteries as a result of over-cranking.

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Fuel contaminated with water, irrespective of whether it is unleaded or diesel, is without question a serious issue to handle in a car - especially in current day common-rail engines.

Water or AdBlue in the petrol or diesel will bring about idling problems, irregular running, abnormal smoke and, if not sorted out correctly, in some cases damaged injectors. Having water in petrol is quicker to clean out compared to water in diesel - largely because diesel is an oil. In spite of this we are able to take care of both cases pretty swiftly.

Bear in mind that if the vehicle was run with the water contaminated fuel it will very likely need a new fuel filter fitted simply because the previous one will be thoroughly water-logged and unusable.

They had conked out after adding diesel in their grey Volvo V90, and were close to an hour's travel away. I arrived at their position and smiled to myself as I listened to the girl telling her spouse off for being so daft. "How could you actually be able to put the wrong fuel in the car?" she said to him. I tried to clarify that this happens everyday in Essex and that it's nothing at all to worry about, nonetheless he all the same had his ear bent by his better half. Unlucky chap. Anyhow, I extracted all of the wrong fuel, gave the motor a flush and gave them some proper fuel. Watching while they drove down the road I shouted so long and pondered on what my missus would say to me if I did the same thing... I would personally never ever live it down!

This was exactly what we call an unsociable time to be awake. It was around 3 in the morning and almost noone was about. It had become rather quiet thus far, and Mark and I were loafing about browsing several old magazines. That was an uncommon quiet hour in Essex. Actually it was in fact so calm that when the phone eventually rang it made me start! The motorist said: "I have only just ended my overnight shift and foolishly poured the wrong fuel in a diesel classic Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class in error". I got him to let us know just where he was situated and we set off, getting to him in Handley Green under half an hour later. The contaminated fuel was taken out from the vehicle. He thanked us profusely for arriving so rapidly. While we were returning to the office we spotted two ladies at the side of the highway who seemed like they had a flat tyre.
