It was about 9 pm on a Wednesday and though we were guaranteed a rainless day, it hadn't ceased raining! Ray and me were relaxing going over the recent golf rankings, waiting around for the sixth telephone call to arrive. Inevitably we had the phone call from a lovely women on a company expedition who had pulled into the Tesco filling station in Bennetts End and filled petrol in her diesel husband's Mazda B-Series Plus lease car by mistake. The unfortunate lady was very troubled it seemed, saying "I can't believe I've wrecked the car! I'm so used to filling my petrol vehicle I completely forgot that I was driving a diesel!" We advised her to calm down and not to be concerned, and also that things like this sadly happen. She had managed to relocate the car into a secure area and, seeing that it was just a few minutes away from the office, we could reach the customer rather quickly. The bad fuel was extracted and she was able to once again go back to the Travelodge she was staying at. Even though we got really drenched, it was all worth it seeing her drive off calm and less concerned. A misfuel correction in Hertfordshire well done in my mind!

The 3 things you SHOULD know about petrol in diesel!

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Fuel contaminated with water, regardless of whether it is unleaded petrol or diesel, can be a serious matter to take care of in a vehicle - specifically in modern common-rail engines.

Having water or AdBlue inside your diesel or petrol can easily result in idling problems, irregular running, abnormal smoke and, if it's not remedied fully, possibly blown injectors. Water in petrol is less difficult to get rid of than water in diesel - primarily due to the fact that diesel is an oil. Having said that we can take care of both circumstances very expediently.

Take note though that in the event that the vehicle has been run on the water contamination it will most likely require a new fuel filter to be installed since the previous one will likely be completely wet and ineffective.

Boat Fuel Drains

If perhaps you've got the incorrect fuel, or even contaminated fuel (most typically water contamination or old fuel) in a boat we can help you clean it out. So long as the boat is either dry-docked, or situated close enough to an automobile parking bay we should be able to gain access to the fuel storage and remove the fuel. We have successfully done quite a few fuel drains at docks and boatyards in the uk.

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.
