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

Boat Fuel Drains

If you find there is the incorrect fuel, or contaminated fuel (most commonly water contaminated or old fuel) in a boat we can help you drain it. Assuming that the boat is either on land, or secured close enough to a car parking spot we can access the storage tanks and remove the fuel. We've successfully done quite a few fuel drains at piers and boatyards throughout the country.

AdBlue Contamination

In Gloucestershire we are encountering increasingly more examples of AdBlue contamination wherein somebody has put AdBlue directly into their diesel fuel tank. This is to a degree stemming from drivers not being totally sure the way to work with it (please note: it's not a fuel additive), and to some extent due to the fact that the filler caps for diesel and AdBlue are typically right near to each other on the vehicle.

Now, exactly what is the situation with putting AdBlue in a diesel vehicle?

Seeing that the product is mainly ionised water, it's just like putting water in your tank. Diesel and water really don't mix in the least and trying to run a diesel car on water cannot work. In addition, the urea is highly corrosive to your fuel system hoses and seals and is prone to crystallisation, blocking injectors and fuel filters. In case you put AdBlue into the fuel tank get it drained at the earliest opportunity. And obviously do not switch on the car - not even to move it to a parking area. In the event that you have started the vehicle you may very likely have to have the full fuel system flushed and filters replaced.

If perhaps you discover yourself to be in this scenario don’t fret or panic! Call us, the UK’s Best fuel contamination company. Our technicians possess the specialised knowledge and experience to have you back on your way rapidly and efficiently, no mess, no fuss.

We told her that all would be okay and that she would be back in action in no time at all.

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.
