The 3 things you MUST know about petrol in diesel!

Waste Fuel Disposal

Got a fuel tank lying in the back of your premises with unwanted, unusable or degraded fuel? We're able to help you to dispose of it. We've been called out to a number of domestic and industrial properties in Herefordshire for the purpose of taking away and recycling fuel storages. We are covered by the Environment Agency to allow us to extract and dispose of waste fuel safely and legally.

Whether the fuel storage is an underground reservoir, a mobile bowser, or perhaps some drums in an outbuilding, assuming that we can reach it, we could certainly empty it.

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Fuel contaminated with water, irrespective of whether it's unleaded petrol or diesel, is in many cases a significant condition to address in a vehicle - especially in modern common-rail engines.

Putting water or AdBlue in the fuel tank is likely to trigger idling problems, lumpy running, excessive smoke and, if it's not taken care of fully, quite possibly blown injectors. Water in petrol is quicker to get rid of in comparison with water in diesel - mainly due to the fact that diesel is an oil. Even so we can take care of both circumstances fairly easily.

Remember that in the event that the vehicle was run on the fuel contaminated with water it will quite possible need a new fuel filter to be fitted since the previous one will likely be completely wet and useless.

A lady employed in Lyde Cross phoned us shortly after she had tried to get her misfueled automobile to her office. She had put unleaded in her diesel compact Volvo V40 and, like many people prior to her, assumed that she could just fill her tank with diesel and it would run fine. The engine was chugging and then it cut out when she reached the entrance of her office. We soon started on the fuel drain after she called and had it resolved within 60 minutes while she was at the office. She came out later on and thanked us saying, "I'm very happy you sorted my car."

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.
