The 3 things you MUST know about fuel contamination!

Marine Fuel Drains

If it turns out you've got the wrong fuel, or even contaminated fuel (most commonly water contamination or old fuel) in a boat we can certainly help clean it out. As long as the boat is either on land, or parked near enough to a car parking spot we will be able to access the storage and drain out the contaminated fuel. We've carried out numerous fuel drains at docks and boatyards nationwide.

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Water contaminated fuel, no matter whether it's unleaded petrol or diesel, is usually a significant matter to handle in an automobile - especially in present-day common-rail engines.

Putting water or AdBlue in fuel tank can certainly trigger idling difficulties, irregular running, increased smoke and, if not remedied effectively, possibly damaged injectors. Having water in petrol is less difficult to clean out in comparison with water in diesel - this is primarily due to the fact that diesel is an oil. However we can deal with both situations quite easily.

Bear in mind that whenever the vehicle was started on the water contaminated fuel it will likely require a new fuel filter fitted seeing as the previous one will likely be completely wet and ineffective.

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.
