The 3 things you SHOULD know about fuel contamination!

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Fuel contaminated with water, no matter whether it is unleaded or diesel, is certainly a significant matter to address in a car - particularly in advanced common-rail engines.

Having water or AdBlue inside your fuel tank will likely produce idling problems, lumpy running, increased smoke and, if it is not dealt with effectively, potentially damaged injectors. Water in petrol is quicker to drain than water in diesel - largely because diesel is an oil. Even so we are able to deal with both circumstances quite quickly.

You should know that as long as the vehicle has been started on the water contaminated fuel it will likely require a new fuel filter to be fitted seeing as the previous one will probably be completely water-logged and useless.

As long as the boat is either on land, or parked close to a car or truck parking spot we will be able to access the storage and drain out the contaminated fuel.

This was what we call an unsociable hour to be on the road. It was roughly sunrise and almost noone was about. It had been pretty dead so far, and Brian and I were relaxing perusing a couple of old papers. That was an unusual calm moment in Herefordshire. Actually it was that quiet that when my mobile finally rang it made me start! The person on the other end explained: "I ended my overnight shift and stupidly poured petrol in my black Citron DS4 in error". We asked him to let us know where the vehicle was located and we headed out, arriving in Tillington Common an hour or so later. The incorrect fuel was taken out from the engine and he said thank you for coming so quickly. While we were going back home we spotted two girls on the edge of the highway who looked like they suffered a puncture. As a result we pulled over to change it, much to their elation.
