Our fuel drainer was called to a service station in Axford when a young lady put the wrong fuel in her apricot Bugatti Veyron by putting petrol in her diesel vehicle. She was in an irritated and confused frame of mind but we soon calmed her mood by telling her that we could be with her car within the hour to perform the fuel-drain and that the car would soon be running and she'd be away again.

The 3 things you SHOULD know about a Misfuel!

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Fuel contaminated with water, no matter whether it is unleaded or diesel, is undoubtedly a significant condition to take care of in a motor vehicle - especially in modern-day common-rail engines.

Having water or AdBlue in petrol or diesel can certainly contribute to idling difficulties, lumpy running, excessive smoke and, if it's not remedied fully, possibly damaged injectors. Water in petrol is less complicated to clean out as compared to water in diesel - mostly because diesel is an oil. Nevertheless we are able to deal with both situations quite swiftly.

Bear in mind though that in the event that the vehicle was started on the water contamination it will more than likely require a new fuel filter fitted as the previous one is going to be completely water-logged and ineffective.

Waste Fuel Disposal

Have an old fuel container placed at the back of the garden containing old, unusable or contaminated fuel? We could assist you to get rid of it. We have been called out to several domestic and commercial premises in Hampshire to deal with removing and recycling fuel storages. We are registered by the Environment Agency to be able to remove and recycle waste fuel legally and safely.

Whether the fuel storage is an underground container, a portable bowser, or possibly even a few drums in an outbuilding, if we can get to it, we can certainly drain it.

The owner of a modified Audi Cabriolet was sorry that he put the wrong fuel in his diesel vehicle when he got as far as the street and it coughed and ground to a halt.

To tell the truth, when he initially telephoned us he said he would like to check around, but he phoned us back soon enough because our pricing and call-out times were the most appropriate. Of course, our engineer had him back performing his deliveries within the period we had cited.

Wrong Fuel in Car London - Petrol in Diesel Car Axford

We not too long ago received a phone call about a man who had put the incorrect fuel in his gorgeous BMW 745 in Axford. He had broken down on the road. "After inserting unleaded in my diesel car I didn't notice the problem till I stopped working. You cleared the wrong fuel from my car and had it functioning . I was happy due to both how swift you were and your value for money". As you can imagine we arrived on the scene punctually and purged the engine after draining all of the unleaded from the diesel tank. On arrival the engineer said the driver was raging, but was happy afterwards.

This was exactly what is called the graveyard shift. It was roughly dawn and nobody was stirring. It had become quite quiet until now, and me and Brian were loafing about reading through a couple of old articles. This was an unusual restful moment in Hampshire. Actually it was in fact so quiet that the instant the phone inevitably rang it made me jump! The person on the other end said: "I have only just finished my night shift and foolishly poured the wrong fuel in the elegant BMW 325 in error". I asked him to tell us where he was situated and we hit the road, ending up in Axford less than an hour or so later. The contaminated fuel was taken out from the vehicle and he thanked us profusely for showing up so quickly. As we were coming back to base we noticed two ladies on the edge of the highway who seemed to have a flat tyre. As a result we stopped and helped them change it, much to their elation.

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 VAT 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.
