The 3 things you SHOULD know about Wrong Fuel!

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Fuel contaminated with water, whether it's unleaded or diesel, is actually a significant condition to address in a car - especially in more modern common-rail engines.

Water or AdBlue in the fuel can easily cause idling problems, irregular running, excessive smoke and, if not sorted out fully, in some cases damaged injectors. Having water in petrol is less complicated to get rid of as compared with water in diesel - this is mostly due to the fact that diesel is an oil. Having said that we are able to deal with both circumstances pretty swiftly.

You should know however that in the event that the vehicle was run on the water contamination it will most likely require a new fuel filter fitted as the previous one will be totally water-logged and unusable.

    • Engine coughing or starting to splutter
    • Won’t start – or keeps stalling.
