It was just before five pm on a Monday and even though we were guaranteed a rainless evening, it had not stopped raining! Mark and me were relaxing talking over the golf results, waiting for the sixth telephone call to come in. Inevitably we got the phone call from a girl on a company excursion who had arrived at the Texaco petrol station in Hindley and filled the wrong fuel in her diesel red Mitsubishi Expo hire car by mistake. The poor thing was very distressed it seemed, telling me "I still can't believe that I have destroyed the vehicle! I am just so used to filling up my petrol car that I totally forgot that I was running a diesel!" I told her to relax and not to be concerned, plus that such things unfortunately can happen. She managed to get the car to a secure area and, because it was no more than a few minutes from us, we were able to reach the woman swiftly. The incorrect fuel was taken out so she was able to return to the Travelodge she was staying in.

The 3 things you MUST know about a Misfuel!

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Fuel contaminated with water, regardless of whether it is unleaded or diesel, is generally an important situation to handle in a car - especially in advanced common-rail engines.

Having water or AdBlue in fuel tank can trigger idling problems, lumpy running, increased smoke and, if it is not addressed effectively, quite possibly blown injectors. Water in petrol is easier to drain as compared to water in diesel - primarily due to the fact that diesel is an oil. However we can handle both situations rather swiftly.

Remember that in the event that the vehicle has been run with the fuel contaminated with water it will most likely require a new fuel filter fitted because the old one will be totally water-logged and ineffective.

Marine Fuel Drains

If perhaps there is the wrong fuel, or contaminated fuel (most commonly water contamination or old fuel) in a boat we can certainly remove it. As long as the boat is either dry-docked, or parked close enough to parking spot we will be able to gain access to the storage and remove the contaminated fuel. We have carried out many fuel drains at piers and boatyards throughout the country.

I was pleased due to both how fast you were and your value for money".

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.
