The 3 things you MUST know about petrol in diesel!

Marine Fuel Drains

In the event that there is the wrong fuel, or contaminated fuel (most typically water contaminated or degraded fuel) in a boat we can help you drain it. So long as the boat is either dry-docked, or situated close enough to a car or truck parking bay we should be able to gain access to the storage tanks and remove the contaminated fuel. We've done quite a few fuel drains at marinas and boatyards across the country.

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Water contaminated fuel, whether it's unleaded petrol or diesel, is actually a significant condition to take care of in a motor vehicle - particularly in modern common-rail engines.

Water or AdBlue in the diesel or petrol can easily cause idling problems, uneven running, excessive smoke and, if it is not sorted out effectively, oftentimes blown injectors. Having water in petrol is easier to drain as compared to water in diesel - largely due to the fact that diesel is an oil. Having said that we are able to take care of both cases pretty easily.

Be aware however that if ever the vehicle was started with the fuel contaminated with water it will most likely need a new fuel filter fitted simply because the previous one will likely be thoroughly water-logged and useless.

Wrong Fuel Assist Cadnam - Wrong Fuel in Car Cadnam

I had a perfect afternoon fishing on my off day and felt contented the following working day as I set out to assist a young family who were on holiday in Cadnam. They conked out after filling the wrong fuel into their company's Vauxhall Insignia, and they were around an hour away. I emerged at their position and laughed as I listened to the girl telling off her man for actually being so foolish. "Precisely how could you actually be able to fill the vehicle up with the wrong fuel?" she said to him. I wanted to clarify that this situation occurs everyday in Hampshire and that it's absolutely nothing to be anxious about, however he still got an ear bashing. Unfortunate boy. Anyways, I cleaned up and removed all the polluted fuel, gave the motor a flush and gave it some correct fuel. Watching as they drove off I shouted farewell and thought about what her indoors would say to me in the event that I did the exact same thing... I'd personally under no circumstances hear the end of it!

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:

    • 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.
