The 3 things you NEED to know about petrol in diesel!

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Water contaminated fuel, regardless of whether it is unleaded or diesel, is undoubtedly an important situation to address in an automobile - specifically in advanced common-rail engines.

Having water or AdBlue in the petrol or diesel can potentially cause idling issues, lumpy running, increased smoke and, if not remedied fully, possibly ruined injectors. Having water in petrol is less difficult to clean out as compared with water in diesel - mostly because diesel is an oil. Having said that we are able to resolve both cases quite quickly.

Bear in mind though that in the event that the vehicle was run with the fuel contaminated with water it will probably need a new fuel filter fitted simply because the previous one will probably be completely water-logged and useless.

Wrong Fuel in Car London - Petrol in Diesel Car Teddington Hands

I am not ever excessively inclined to working on weekends, and the other day was no different. I had just departed the family filled with a magnificent Sunday roast made for me by the wife, and I was on the way to sort out a fellow after he put the incorrect fuel in his mom's Chevrolet Corsica. He was stationed in Teddington Hands therefore I arrived with him quickly. Just as I arrived right behind the vehicle and started work he explained to me "Thank the Almighty! I foolishly had my mind on other considerations and did not perceive I've put diesel in my petrol vehicle. Is it possible I brought about problems by driving it?" I revealed there probably should not be any problems and also that I would get the wrong fuel drained as soon as possible for him. Naturally I drained the wrong fuel from the car and put in some appropriate fuel, and thus another contented motorist had the ability to carry on with his ride without the need for difficulty. He could not stop thanking me, and that is actually what helps make carrying out work on weekends in Gloucestershire that little bit better 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.
