The 3 things you NEED to know about petrol in diesel!

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Water contaminated fuel, whether it is unleaded petrol or diesel, is certainly a serious matter to address in a vehicle - specifically in modern-day common-rail engines.

Water or AdBlue in fuel tank will likely result in idling issues, lumpy running, increased smoke and, if it is not taken care of fully, quite possibly blown injectors. Water in petrol is easier to get rid of in comparison with water in diesel - this is mostly due to the fact that diesel is an oil. In spite of this we can deal with both circumstances fairly simply.

Keep in mind though that any time the vehicle was run with the water contaminated fuel it will most likely require a new fuel filter fitted as the old one will undoubtedly be totally wet and unusable.

Waste Fuel Disposal

Have an old fuel reservoir placed in the back of your garden with out of date, useless or contaminated fuel? We can assist you to get rid of it. We've been called out to numerous privately owned and industrial properties in Hertfordshire to take care of taking away and disposing of fuel storages. We are covered by the Environment Agency to enable us to get rid of and dispose of waste fuel legally and safely.

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.
