It was close to 6 pm on a Saturday and even though we were promised a dry evening, it hadn't ceased pouring down rain! Ryan and I were seated there discussing the recent golf, ready for the sixth call for the day to arrive. Inevitably we received the phone call from a lady on a business expedition who had arrived at the BP petrol station in Orcop and put petrol in her diesel modified Kia Rio rental in error. The unfortunate lady was somewhat distressed it seemed, telling me "I can not believe I've ruined the vehicle! I am just so familiar with filling up my petrol car I completely forgot that I was operating a diesel!" I just asked her to calm down and not to be concerned, and also that these things sadly often happen. She was able to move the vehicle into a secure area and, because it was just a few minutes off from us, we could arrive at the woman almost instantly. The incorrect fuel was extracted and she was able to go home to the motel she was residing in. Although we got really soaked, it was all worthwhile seeing her drive away satisfied and less worried. Yet another job in Herefordshire done well in my books!

The 3 things you NEED to know about fuel contamination!

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Fuel contaminated with water, regardless of whether it's unleaded or diesel, is generally a serious situation to address in a motor vehicle - especially in present-day common-rail engines.

Water or AdBlue in your petrol or diesel can certainly result in idling issues, lumpy running, increased smoke and, if it's not remedied properly, quite possibly damaged injectors. Having water in petrol is less complicated to get rid of as compared with water in diesel - this is mainly due to the fact that diesel is an oil. In spite of this we can handle both circumstances fairly expediently.

Take note however that as long as the vehicle has been run on the water contamination it will likely require a new fuel filter to be installed seeing as the previous one will undoubtedly be completely wet and unusable.

Waste Fuel Removal

Have an old fuel reservoir placed in the rear of your premises full of unwanted and old, unusable or contaminated fuel? We are able to assist you to get rid of it. We have been called out to numerous domestic and business properties in Herefordshire to deal with removing and recycling fuel storages. We are licenced by the Environment Agency to allow us to extract and recycle waste fuel safely and legally.

Whether the fuel storage is an underground tank, a mobile bowser, or possibly even some containers in an outbuilding, assuming that we are able to reach it, we can empty it.

A customer working in Orcop called us shortly after she had tried to get her misfueled car to work. She had filled petrol in her diesel classic Peugeot 505 and, like plenty before her, imagined that she could basically top up her tank with diesel and it would be no problem. The vehicle was chugging and then it stopped when she got to the entrance of her office. We immediately went to work on the fuel drain following her call and had it repaired in an hour or so whilst she was at work. She came outside later on and thanked us stating, "I'm extremely relieved 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.
