The 3 things you HAVE TO know about Wrong Fuel!

AdBlue Contamination

What you can do if you have poured AdBlue in your Diesel fuel tank?

AdBlue is a chemical that’s made out of a blend of high-purity urea (32.5%) and ionized water (67.5%). AdBlue tends to be disastrous to your automobile's fuel system, specifically in cases where you run the engine with AdBlue in the diesel fuel tank. The moment the engine has been started the AdBlue is going to be dragged into the fuel lines and will rapidly begin to crystalise, resulting in devastating and expensive problems to your car's fuel system.

Contact us if it turns out you are going through AdBlue contamination. We will help. We are Specialists in dealing with contaminated fuel and can easily fix all kinds of AdBlue contamination.

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

We a few weeks ago got a call from a guy who put the wrong fuel in his mate's Toyota Highlander in Haugh. He had broken down on the road. "I couldn't believe how rapid you people were in having someone out to aid me after I stupidly petrol in my diesel. Thank you ever so much". It goes without saying that we were on-scene punctually and purged the engine after draining all the unleaded from the diesel tank. On arrival our engineer said the customer was scowling, but was pretty happy after the fuel drain.

This was certainly an unsociable hour to be up. It was close to 3:30am and almost noone was stirring. It was fairly uneventful up to now, and me and Brian were loafing looking at a few old papers. It was a rare restful hour in Greater Manchester. It was so calm that the instant my mobile inevitably rang it made me jump! The motorist said: "I've just ended my overnight shift and foolishly poured the wrong fuel in my diesel luxury Renault Laguna". I got him to let us know exactly where he was situated and we headed out, getting to him in Haugh not as much as an hour or so later. The incorrect fuel was removed from the vehicle and he thanked us profusely for coming out so rapidly. As we were going back to base we noticed two women at the edge of the highway who seemed like they had a puncture. Obviously we pulled over and helped them change it, to their delight.

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.
