The 3 things you HAVE TO know about a Misfuel!

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Fuel contaminated with water, irrespective of whether it is unleaded petrol or diesel, is actually a serious issue to address in a car - especially in modern-day common-rail engines.

Water or AdBlue in your fuel tank may well result in idling issues, uneven running, increased smoke and, if it's not remedied correctly, possibly ruined injectors. Having water in petrol is a lot easier to drain when compared with water in diesel - this is largely due to the fact that diesel is an oil. However we can handle both cases fairly simply.

Remember however that if ever the vehicle has been started with the water contamination it will most likely need a new fuel filter fitted as the old one will be totally wet and unusable.

Wrong Fuel in Car London - Petrol in Diesel Car Meysey Hampton

I am not ever too excited about doing the job on Sundays, and last week was the same. I had only just come away from the wife and kids after eating a tasty dinner prepared by the wife, and I was on my way to help a gentleman who had put the incorrect petrol in his beautiful Ford Fiesta. He was only in Meysey Hampton thus I arrived with him almost immediately. Just as I arrived right behind the vehicle and got busy draining he said to me "Praise the Almighty! I stupidly had my mind on other things and did not ascertain I've put diesel in my petrol car. Have I created any kind of harm simply by running it?" I stated that truth be told there probably should not be harm and also I would personally get the fuel drained immediately for him. It goes without saying that I drained the contaminated fuel from the car and put in the appropriate fuel, and then one more delighted client could continue on his journey without any subsequent hassle. He did not stop thanking me, and this tends to make carrying out work on weekends in Gloucestershire just a small bit easier in my opinion!

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.
