The 3 things you HAVE TO know about Wrong Fuel!

AdBlue In Diesel

All around Newham we have noticed progressively more instances of AdBlue contamination when an individual has put AdBlue directly into their diesel tank. This is in part a result of motorists not knowing the right way to use it (important: it is not a fuel additive), and to some extent due to the fact that the filler necks for diesel and AdBlue are usually directly adjacent to each other on the vehicle.

Now, what is the trouble with putting AdBlue in your diesel tank?

Seeing as AdBlue is predominantly deionised water, it's like putting water in your tank. Diesel and water really do not mix whatsoever and trying to run a diesel car on water isn't going to work. In addition, the urea is highly corrosive to the fuel system pipes and seals and is at risk of crystalising, damaging injectors and filters. If perhaps you poured AdBlue into the fuel tank get it drained immediately. And most definitely take care not to start up the engine - not even to move it into a parking bay. In case you did start the car you would in all probability have to have the entire fuel system cleaned and filters changed out.
