The 3 things you SHOULD know about fuel contamination!

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Water contaminated fuel, irrespective of whether it is unleaded petrol or diesel, is actually a serious issue to take care of in an automobile - specifically in more modern common-rail engines.

Water or AdBlue in the petrol or diesel will often cause idling problems, uneven running, excessive smoke and, if it is not taken care of properly, quite possibly blown injectors. Water in petrol is less complicated to get rid of as compared with water in diesel - largely because diesel is an oil. Even so we can take care of both situations fairly quickly.

Bear in mind that as long as the vehicle was run on the fuel contaminated with water it will probably need a new fuel filter fitted seeing that the old one will probably be completely wet and useless.

Boat Fuel Drains

In the event that there is the wrong fuel, or perhaps contaminated fuel (most commonly water contaminated or old fuel) in a boat we can help drain it. Providing the boat is either on land, or situated close to a car or truck parking bay we will be able to access the storage tanks and remove the contaminated fuel. We have undertaken many fuel drains at docks and boatyards throughout the country.

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.
