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

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Fuel contaminated with water, no matter whether it's petrol or diesel, is undoubtedly a significant issue to deal with in an automobile - particularly in modern day common-rail engines.

Having water or AdBlue in the fuel tank is likely to cause idling difficulties, uneven running, increased smoke and, if it's not remedied effectively, quite possibly broken injectors. Water in petrol is less difficult to drain as compared with water in diesel - largely because diesel is an oil. Having said that we can deal with both circumstances fairly simply.

You should know though that as long as the vehicle was run with the fuel contaminated with water it will most likely need a new fuel filter fitted because the old one will be thoroughly wet and unusable.

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:

    • 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.
