The 3 things you MUST know about a Misfuel!

Marine Fuel Drains

If it turns out you've got the incorrect fuel, or perhaps contaminated fuel (most usually water contamination or old fuel) in a boat we can help clean it out. Assuming that the boat is either dry-docked, or moored near enough to a vehicle parking spot we are able to access the storage tanks and drain out the contaminated fuel. We have done numerous fuel drains at piers and boatyards nationwide.

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Water contaminated fuel, whether it is petrol or diesel, is actually a serious situation to deal with in a car - especially in more modern common-rail engines.

Water or AdBlue in the fuel will trigger idling problems, uneven running, excessive smoke and, if not sorted out properly, oftentimes ruined injectors. Water in petrol is less difficult to clean out as compared to water in diesel - largely due to the fact that diesel is an oil. Having said that we can solve both circumstances pretty quickly.

Keep in mind however that as long as the vehicle has been run with the water contaminated fuel it will probably need a new fuel filter to be fitted since the previous one is going to be thoroughly water-logged and useless.

She told us that she had left the filling station and broken down on a rural lane on route to see her grandchildren. I got her location punched in the TomTom and arrived inside 60 minutes. I reached the stricken lady and extracted the wrong fuel from the car. Whilst I was working she told me, "I have been becoming somewhat forgetful in my senior years and forgot about the car using diesel as I'd only got it a couple of days ago right after my previous one, which I had used for more than 30 years, inevitably stopped working". I got the job completed and she gave me a peppermint and said thank you. Such a pleasant Hampshire lady!

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.
