It was after seven pm on a Thursday and despite the fact that we were promised a dry night, it hadn't stopped raining! James and I were seated there commenting on the recent tennis rankings, waiting for the sixth fuel drain for the day to come in. Eventually we received the phone call from a lovely woman on a business excursion who had gone to the Shell petrol garage in Crankwood and filled petrol in a diesel yellow Suzuki Samurai hire car in error. She was rather affected apparently, telling me "I just can't believe that I have messed up the vehicle! I am so accustomed to filling up my petrol car I totally forgot I was operating a diesel!" We asked her to relax and not to be concerned, and also that such things sadly can happen. She was able to maneuver the vehicle into a safe area and, because it was no more than a few miles away from the office, we could find the customer quickly. The incorrect fuel was drained and she was able to get back to the motel she was staying at. Even though we got fairly drenched, it was all worth the effort to watch her drive home satisfied and not so worried. One more job in Greater Manchester done well in my books!

The 3 things you HAVE TO know about fuel contamination!

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Fuel contaminated with water, whether it is unleaded petrol or diesel, is certainly a serious matter to handle in an automobile - especially in more modern common-rail engines.

Water or AdBlue in petrol or diesel can potentially contribute to idling issues, uneven running, increased smoke and, if it's not taken care of fully, quite possibly ruined injectors. Water in petrol is quicker to drain as compared with water in diesel - this is mainly because diesel is an oil. However we can take care of both situations very quickly.

You should know however that in the event that the vehicle was run on the water contaminated fuel it will more than likely need a new fuel filter to be fitted simply because the previous one will undoubtedly be completely water-logged and useless.

Waste Fuel Disposal

Have an old fuel container sitting in the rear of your premises full of aged, unusable or degraded fuel? We are able to help you to dispose of it. We have been called out to numerous privately owned and industrial premises in Greater Manchester to take care of taking away and disposing of fuel storages. We are licenced by the Environment Agency to be able to remove and dispose of waste fuel legally and safely.

Irrespective of whether the fuel storage is a subterranean container, a mobile bowser, or possibly even a few drums in an outbuilding, providing we can reach it, we could certainly drain it for you.

Tales from our Crankwood team:

Wrong Fuel in Car Greater Manchester - Petrol in Diesel Car Crankwood

We recently had a phone call about a motorist who put the wrong fuel in his mint condition Volvo V90 in Crankwood. He had broken down on the road. "After inserting unleaded in my diesel car I didn't notice the issue up until I stopped working. You took the wrong fuel from my car and had it working . I was happy because of both how swift you were and your value for money". As you can imagine we were on-scene promptly and flushed the engine after draining all the unleaded from the diesel tank. When he arrived our fuel drainer said the driver was fuming, but was satisfied after the fuel drain.

A driver from Crankwood with her kids in her diesel rugged Mercedes CLS-Class had put £42 of petrol at the Shell filling station. She contacted us crying and really distraught as she had never put petrol in a diesel car previously and didn't know what could happen to her car because of it. We told her that all would be ok and that she would be back in action very quickly. When we got there she was still upset but as our engineer began work on the fuel drain she simmered down since she recognised that something could be done and her vehicle wasn't wrecked. She quickly brightened up and was on the road again saying, "I just can't believe my misfortune putting the wrong fuel in my car! Particularly with the kids in the back."

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 VA 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.
