The 3 things you MUST know about fuel contamination!

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Fuel contaminated with water, irrespective of whether it is unleaded or diesel, is certainly a significant matter to handle in a vehicle - specifically in present-day common-rail engines.

Having water or AdBlue in your petrol or diesel will likely bring about idling difficulties, lumpy running, abnormal smoke and, if it's not addressed fully, in some cases damaged injectors. Water in petrol is quicker to get rid of compared to water in diesel - this is mostly because diesel is an oil. Even so we can deal with both circumstances pretty simply.

Remember that if ever the vehicle has been run with the fuel contaminated with water it will most likely require a new fuel filter fitted because the old one will undoubtedly be completely wet and unusable.

We have been called out to a number of private and commercial properties in Gloucestershire for the purpose of draining and recycling fuel storages.

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.
