It was before 7 pm on a Wednesday and even though we were assured a rainless night, it had not given up on raining! Dan and me were relaxing commenting on the recent golf, at the ready for the seventh job of the day to come in. In due time we had the phone call from a woman on a company expedition who had pulled into the Esso petrol station in Burghill and filled the wrong fuel in her diesel navy blue Suzuki Vitara rental in error. She was somewhat irritated by the sounds of it, saying "I simply can't believe I've wrecked the vehicle! I'm so used to filling my petrol vehicle that I totally forgot that I was running a diesel!" We asked her to take it easy and not to worry, plus that these things sadly can happen.

AdBlue Contamination

What you should do if you have put AdBlue into your Diesel fuel tank?

AdBlue is a solution that is made from a blend of urea (32.5%) and deionized water (67.5%). AdBlue is certainly harmful to your vehicle's fuel system, specifically any time you have had the engine running with AdBlue in your diesel tank. Whenever the engine has been switched on the AdBlue will likely be dragged into the fuel lines and will immediately start to crystalise, resulting in disastrous and expensive harm to your car's fuel system.

Phone us if you have suffered from AdBlue contamination. We can certainly help. We are Specialists in dealing with contaminated fuel and will take care of every type of AdBlue contamination.

Wrong Fuel in Car London - Petrol in Diesel Car Burghill

Now I am not ever so inclined to carrying out work Sundays, and a week ago was the same. I'd just departed home after eating a tasty Sunday roast prepared for me by the better half, and I was off to sort out a man who put the wrong petrol in his matte black Vauxhall Combo. He was only in Burghill hence I was with him almost immediately. Just as I drove up at the car and started work he explained to me "Praise the Almighty! I incredibly had my mind on stuff and failed to grasp that I have put the wrong fuel in my petrol car. I need to know if I caused some damage through driving it?" I stated that truth be told there shouldn't be any kind of problems and also that I would get the fuel drained immediately. Naturally I removed the contaminated fuel from the vehicle and filled up with the suitable fuel, and then another happy client had the ability to continue his ride without any subsequent hassle. He did not stop thanking me, and that tends to make operating on Sundays in Herefordshire that tiny bit less painful for me personally!

A woman employed in Burghill called us shortly after she managed to get her misfueled car to the office. She had filled the wrong fuel in her diesel metallic red VW Golf III and, like plenty prior to her, thought that she would be able to simply fill up the car with diesel and it would run alright. The car was chugging and then it cut out when she arrived at the entrance of her office. We immediately went to work on the fuel drain following her call and got it resolved within an hour while she was in the office. She came out soon after and thanked us saying, "I'm really happy you repaired my vehicle."

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.

Following is a list of common wrong fuel symptoms or signs:
