The 3 things you MUST know about petrol in diesel!

Motorboat Fuel Drains

If perhaps you've got the wrong fuel, or contaminated fuel (most typically water contaminated or old fuel) in a boat we can certainly help clean it out. So long as the boat is either dry-docked, or parked near enough to an automobile parking bay we should be able to reach the tanks and drain out the contaminated fuel. We have completed numerous fuel drains at marinas and boatyards throughout the country.

AdBlue In your Fuel

In Essex we are identifying increasingly more occurrences of AdBlue contamination wherein a driver has put AdBlue into their diesel fuel tank. This is mostly thanks to people not understanding the right way to work with it (please note: it is not a fuel additive), and to some extent because the filler necks for diesel and AdBlue are generally directly near to one another on the vehicle.

Well, what is the trouble with putting AdBlue in your diesel car?

As the product is predominantly deionised water, it is nearly as good as putting water in to your tank. Diesel and water will not mix at all and trying to run a diesel car on water cannot work. Moreover, the urea is fairly corrosive to the fuel system lines and seals and is prone to crystalising, blocking injectors and fuel filters. If perhaps you have put AdBlue into the fuel tank get it out right away. And absolutely be careful not to start the engine - not even to shift it away from the pump. In the event that you did start the car you will probably have to have the whole fuel system cleaned and fuel filters changed out.

If you get in this scenario don’t panic! Contact us, the UK’s Best fuel contamination company. Our technicians have the technical know-how and working experience to get you back on the road promptly and efficiently, without mess or fuss.

This was certainly what is called the night shift. It was around 3 in the morning and almost noone was about. It had been pretty dead until now, and Mark and I were relaxing looking at several old newspapers. This was an uncommon peaceful moment in Essex. It was indeed that calm that the moment the phone rang it made me jump! The person told me: "I've just ended my overnight shift and foolishly filled petrol in the bright yellow Audi A6 in error". We asked him to let us know where he was and we left, reaching him in Prittlewell an hour later. The incorrect fuel was cleared from the engine and he said many thanks for coming so fast. While we were heading back to the depot we found two women on the side of the road who appeared to have a flat tyre. Obviously we pulled up to change it, to their elation.

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.
