AdBlue In your Fuel

All around Hertfordshire we are finding an increasing number of instances of AdBlue contamination wherein a motorist has put AdBlue right into their diesel tank. This is to some extent stemming from people not understanding how to to make use of (remember: it is not a fuel additive), and partly due to the fact that the filler caps for diesel and AdBlue are generally right close to one another on the vehicle.

Well, what is the issue with putting AdBlue in the diesel car?

Because the product is predominantly ionised water, it's just like pouring water into your tank. Diesel and water really do not mix in the slightest and trying to run a diesel car on water does not work. In addition to this, the urea is fairly corrosive to your fuel system lines and seals and is more prone to crystallisation, damaging injectors and fuel filters. In the event that you put AdBlue in the fuel tank get it drained as quickly as possible. And obviously never switch on the car - not even to relocate it away from the pump. In cases where you have started the vehicle you may in all probability need to have the entire fuel system cleaned and fuel filters changed out.

In case you find yourself in this position don’t fret or panic! Call us, the UK’s Premium fuel contamination service. Our technicians have got the technical know-how and experience to get you back on your way promptly and efficiently, no mess, no fuss.
