Providing the boat is either dry-docked, or secured near enough to a car parking bay we are able to access the fuel storage and remove the fuel.

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Water contaminated fuel, no matter whether it is unleaded petrol or diesel, can be an important condition to deal with in a motor vehicle - especially in modern-day common-rail engines.

Putting water or AdBlue in the diesel or petrol can lead to idling issues, lumpy running, increased smoke and, if not addressed properly, quite possibly damaged injectors. Water in petrol is less difficult to remove compared to water in diesel - mostly due to the fact that diesel is an oil. Having said that we can take care of both cases very swiftly.

Keep in mind that any time the vehicle has been run with the water contamination it will very likely require a new fuel filter to be fitted because the previous one will likely be totally water-logged and useless.

I appreciated a terrific afternoon hiking during my afternoon off and felt pleased with myself the next working day as I headed out to assist a young family who were vacationing in Hollington. They pulled over after filling the wrong fuel into their dark red Citron, and they were roughly half an hour away. I arrived at their position and smiled to myself as I listened to the girl chastising her husband for actually being so silly. "Just how could you possibly find a way to put the wrong fuel in the vehicle?" she asked him. I wanted to clarify that this takes place regularly in Hampshire and that it's in reality absolutely nothing to fret about, nonetheless he still had an earful by his missus. Poor boy. Anyhow, I removed the contaminated fuel, flushed the fuel system and gave them some right fuel. Watching them drive down the road I mouthed hasta la vista and pondered on what her indoors would say to me if ever I did the exact same thing...

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.
