The 3 things you HAVE TO know about petrol in diesel!

AdBlue Contamination

All over Essex we are discovering more and more examples of AdBlue contamination whereby a motorist has poured AdBlue straight into their diesel fuel tank. This is mostly due to people not being totally sure how to work with it (please note: it's not a fuel additive), and partly due to the fact that the inlets for diesel and AdBlue are often directly adjacent to one another on the car.

Well, precisely what is the situation with putting AdBlue in a diesel car?

Seeing that AdBlue is mainly ionised water, it's as bad as putting water in your tank. Diesel and water do not blend in any way and trying to run a diesel car on water isn't going to work. In addition to this, the urea is particularly corrosive to fuel system lines and seals and is more prone to crystalising, damaging injectors and filters. In the case you have put AdBlue into a fuel tank drain it as quickly as possible. And definitely don't switch on the engine - not even to shift it away from the pump. Assuming you have started the car you may most likely need to have the entire fuel system cleaned and fuel filters changed.

If you find yourself in this situation don’t panic! Call us, the UK’s Number 1 fuel contamination service. Our technicians have got the technical knowledge and experience to have you back on your way promptly and efficiently, no mess, no fuss.

What a fantastic night of uninterrupted sleep! 7:30 am on a warm Wednesday and I was on my way to assist an old lady who had put the wrong fuel in her diesel partner's Ford in Lamb Corner. She told us that she had left the filling station forecourt and was broken down along a backwater road along the way to pay a visit to her grandchildren. I got her location punched straight into the Satnav and was with her within an hour. I arrived at the location and drained the contaminated fuel from the car. While I was doing it she explained, "I have been becoming somewhat forgetful in my senior years and did not remember about the vehicle working with diesel as I'd only got it a few days back because my other car, which I'd had for in excess of 30 years, eventually died". I finished the job and she gifted me a Murray mint and said thanks. Such a delightful Essex woman!

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.
