It was after 5 pm on a Monday and though we were guaranteed a rainless evening, it had not given up on pouring! Paul and I were seated discussing the recent golf rankings, prepared for the seventh call that day to arrive. Before long we had a phone call from a lovely women on a business expedition who had arrived at the BP petrol station in West Down and put petrol in her diesel trusty Jeep Commander rental car by mistake. The unfortunate thing was very agitated apparently, stating "I can't believe that I've ruined the car! I'm so accustomed to filling my petrol car that I completely did not remember I was driving a diesel!" I advised her to relax and not to fret, and also that these things often happen. She was able to get the vehicle into a protected area and, because it was just a few miles from our van, we were able to find the lady fairly quickly. The wrong fuel was drained so she could return to the motel she was residing at. Despite the fact that we got very wet, it was all rewarding to see her drive home satisfied and a lot less concerned. Yet another job in Hampshire done well in my opinion!

The 3 things you SHOULD know about a Misfuel!

AdBlue In Diesel

Throughout Hampshire we have encountered increasingly more cases of AdBlue contamination when a motorist has poured AdBlue right into their diesel tank. This is to some extent due to motorists not being aware of the way to to make use of (please note: it's not a fuel additive), and partially due to the fact that the filler caps for diesel and AdBlue are normally right close to one another on the automobile.

So, what is the situation with having AdBlue in a diesel vehicle?

Seeing as AdBlue is mostly ionised water, it's almost the same as putting water in to your tank. Diesel and water tend not to blend whatsoever and attempting to run a diesel car on water is not going to work. Apart from this, the urea is very corrosive to fuel system lines and seals and is at risk of crystallisation, blocking injectors and fuel filters. In case you have put AdBlue into your fuel tank get it drained right away. And of course don't start the vehicle - not even to relocate it off the pump. In the event that you have started the vehicle you will most likely have to have the complete fuel system cleaned and filters replaced.

Call us if it turns out you have suffered with AdBlue contamination. We will help you. We are Contaminated Fuel Specialists and can easily correct different types of AdBlue contamination.

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.
