The 3 things you NEED to know about petrol in diesel!

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Water contaminated fuel, regardless of whether it's unleaded or diesel, tends to be an important situation to deal with in a vehicle - specifically in present-day common-rail engines.

Putting water or AdBlue in your fuel tank can easily result in idling problems, uneven running, abnormal smoke and, if not remedied effectively, oftentimes blown injectors. Water in petrol is quicker to drain when compared with water in diesel - this is mainly due to the fact that diesel is an oil. In spite of this we can solve both cases fairly swiftly.

Keep in mind however that as long as the vehicle has been run on the water contaminated fuel it will most likely need a new fuel filter fitted seeing that the previous one will be completely water-logged and unusable.
