The 3 things you SHOULD know about fuel contamination!

Motorboat Fuel Drains

If you've got the wrong fuel, or even contaminated fuel (most commonly water contamination or degraded fuel) in a boat we can help get it out. So long as the boat is either dry-docked, or secured close enough to parking spot we can reach the fuel storage and remove the fuel. We've done numerous fuel drains at marinas and boatyards across the country.

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Water contaminated fuel, whether it's petrol or diesel, tends to be an important issue to address in an automobile - especially in present-day common-rail engines.

Water or AdBlue inside your petrol or diesel can easily produce idling issues, lumpy running, excessive smoke and, if it's not taken care of fully, in some cases blown injectors. Having water in petrol is a lot easier to get rid of compared to water in diesel - mainly due to the fact that diesel is an oil. Even so we are able to resolve both cases rather expediently.

Remember though that so long as the vehicle has been run on the water contaminated fuel it will quite possible need a new fuel filter to be fitted seeing as the old one is going to be totally wet and unusable.
