The 3 things you SHOULD know about fuel contamination!

AdBlue In Diesel

All around Hampshire we have found progressively more occurrences of AdBlue contamination whereby a motorist has put AdBlue directly into their diesel tank. This is in part due to drivers not being totally sure the way to use it (be aware: it is actually not a fuel additive), and to some extent due to the fact that the filler caps for diesel and AdBlue are often right adjacent to one another on the automobile.

Now, what exactly is the issue with putting AdBlue in a diesel car?

Since the product is mainly deionised water, it is just like pouring water in to your tank. Diesel and water do not mix at all and attempting to run a diesel car on water does not work. In addition to this, the urea is fairly corrosive to fuel system pipes and seals and is at risk of crystallisation, blocking injectors and filters. In the event that you have put AdBlue in a fuel tank get it drained as quickly as possible. And most certainly be careful not to start the engine - not even to move it to a parking area. In case you have started the car you may probably have to have the complete fuel system purged and filters changed out.

In the event that you find yourself in this situation do not panic! Call us, the UK’s Number one fuel contamination business. Our engineers have the practical expertise and working experience to get you back on the road promptly and efficiently, without mess or hassle.

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.
