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

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Fuel contaminated with water, irrespective of whether it is unleaded or diesel, is without question a significant matter to handle in a car - particularly in advanced common-rail engines.

Having water or AdBlue inside your fuel tank is going to bring about idling problems, lumpy running, excessive smoke and, if it is not addressed properly, oftentimes damaged injectors. Having water in petrol is a lot easier to get rid of than water in diesel - mostly because diesel is an oil. However we can handle both circumstances quite swiftly.

Take note though that in the event that the vehicle has been started with the water contaminated fuel it will very likely need a new fuel filter to be fitted because the old one will be completely water-logged and ineffective.

We have carried out many fuel drains at docks and boatyards nationwide.

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.
