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

AdBlue In Your Diesel

In Gloucestershire we are encountering increasingly more cases of AdBlue contamination when a driver has put AdBlue straight into their diesel tank. This is partially as a result of drivers not being totally sure the way to to make use of (be aware: it's not a fuel additive), and to some extent due to the fact that the filler caps for diesel and AdBlue are frequently directly next to each other on the car.

So, what's the issue with putting AdBlue in the diesel tank?

Since AdBlue is predominantly deionised water, it's as bad as putting water in to your tank. Diesel and water don't blend in any way and trying to run a diesel car on water cannot work. In addition, the urea is very corrosive to the fuel system lines and seals and is prone to crystallisation, clogging injectors and fuel filters. If perhaps you poured AdBlue into your fuel tank get it drained at once. And of course take care not to start up the vehicle - not even to relocate it from the pump. In case you did start the vehicle you will almost certainly need to have the whole fuel system flushed and fuel filters changed out.

Phone us in the event that you are a victim of AdBlue contamination. We can certainly help. We are Contaminated Fuel Specialists and will be able to correct every type of AdBlue liquid contamination.

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.

    • 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.
