We've been called out to quite a few private and business properties in Hampshire to take care of taking away and disposing of fuel storages. We are covered by the Environment Agency to enable us to get rid of and dispose of waste fuel legally and safely.

Regardless of whether the fuel storage is an underground reservoir, a mobile bowser, or possibly even numerous drums in an outbuilding, provided that we can reach it, we are able to empty it for you.

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Fuel contaminated with water, irrespective of whether it is unleaded petrol or diesel, is usually a serious matter to handle in an automobile - particularly in advanced common-rail engines.

Water or AdBlue in the fuel tank will likely trigger idling difficulties, lumpy running, increased smoke and, if it is not addressed properly, potentially broken injectors. Water in petrol is easier to drain as compared to water in diesel - mainly due to the fact that diesel is an oil. Even so we can solve both cases fairly easily.

Take note though that in the event that the vehicle was run with the water contamination it will very likely need a new fuel filter to be fitted simply because the old one is going to be completely wet and useless.

This was certainly the graveyard shift. It was about 2:30am and hardly anyone was around. It was rather dead until now, and Ray and I were sitting around browsing a few old magazines. That was an unusual quiet time in Hampshire. It was indeed so quiet that when the telephone finally rang it made me jump! The person explained: "I've only just completed my night shift and foolishly filled petrol in a diesel sunflower yellow Hyundai HED-5 in error". We got him to let us know where the car was and we left, getting to him in Cosham less than half an hour later. The fuel was cleared from the car and he said many thanks for coming so rapidly. While we were going back home we found two women on the edge of the highway who seemed like they had a flat. As a result we stopped to 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.
