The 3 things you MUST know about petrol in diesel!

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Water contaminated fuel, whether it is petrol or diesel, is definitely a serious matter to deal with in an automobile - especially in present-day common-rail engines.

Water or AdBlue in the fuel tank can easily trigger idling problems, irregular running, excessive smoke and, if it is not addressed fully, oftentimes blown injectors. Having water in petrol is easier to get rid of as compared with water in diesel - mainly because diesel is an oil. Nevertheless we are able to resolve both situations fairly easily.

Bear in mind however that if the vehicle was run with the water contamination it will most likely require a new fuel filter fitted seeing as the previous one will likely be totally water-logged and ineffective.

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.
