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

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Fuel contaminated with water, whether it's petrol or diesel, tends to be a serious issue to handle in a vehicle - especially in modern common-rail engines.

Water or AdBlue inside your fuel tank can easily cause idling difficulties, irregular running, abnormal smoke and, if it's not sorted out effectively, possibly broken injectors. Water in petrol is less difficult to get rid of as compared with water in diesel - this is mostly due to the fact that diesel is an oil. In spite of this we can take care of both circumstances fairly simply.

Take note that as long as the vehicle has been run on the water contaminated fuel it will quite possible require a new fuel filter to be fitted seeing that the old one will be completely water-logged and ineffective.

We are able to get out to re-fill your automobile in cases where you are having difficulty on a motorway, on the side of the road far from a petrol station, or perhaps even at home.

Wrong Fuel in Car in SE14 Postcode - Deptford Misfueling

What a great night's uninterrupted sleep! 7:00 am on a sunny Monday and we were on my way to help an older lady who had put petrol in her diesel buff Mercedes E-Class in Deptford. She informed us that she had driven away from the petrol station forecourt and was pulled up along a rural road en route to see her grandchildren. I got her location punched into the TomTom and was on-scene inside an hour or so. I reached the stricken lady and extracted the wrong fuel out of the car. While I was doing the work she said, "I'm getting relatively forgetful in my old age and didn't remember about the car using diesel seeing that I had just got it a few days back right after my former car, which I'd used for more than twenty five years, inevitably stopped working". I finished the drain and she gave me a toffee and said thanks a lot. Such a pleasant Camden woman!

Thus, in case you've topped up your petrol car with the wrong fuel, or put the wrong fuel in your diesel automobile just about anywhere in Camden, call us right now. Our skilled technicians are completely ready and waiting for your call.

Wrong Fuel Assist Deptford - Wrong Fuel in Car Deptford

I'd had a perfect afternoon golfing on the weekend and was feeling satisfied the next working day as I set out to assist a new family holidaying in Deptford. They had conked out after filling the wrong fuel in their apple green Audi Cabriolet, and they were around half an hour's travel away. I emerged at their location and laughed while I heard to the girl berating her hubby for being so daft. "How could you conceivably manage to fill up with the wrong fuel?" she said to him. I tried to clarify that this kind of thing comes to pass on a regular basis in Camden and that it's really absolutely nothing to stress about, but he yet still got an ear bashing. Poor guy. Anyways, I cleaned up and removed all of the polluted fuel, gave the motor a flush and gave it some right fuel. While they drove down the road I waved bon voyage and pondered on what my missus would do to me in the event that I did the very same thing... I'd never live it down!

Wrong Fuel in Car London - Petrol in Diesel Car Deptford

Now I am certainly not so keen on carrying out work on Sundays, and 2 weeks ago was the same. I had just come away from the wife and kids after a magnificent roast made by the wife, and I was on the way to assist a guy after he put the incorrect fuel in his work's VW Golf III. He was stationed in Deptford therefore I was there almost immediately. As I pulled up at the rear of the car and got out he told me "Thank the Almighty! I foolishly had my thoughts on stuff and did not grasp that I had put diesel in my petrol car. Have I caused damage by starting it?" I explained that there probably should not be damage and that also I'd personally get the wrong fuel drained at once for him. It goes without saying that I drained the contaminated fuel from the car and put in the appropriate fuel, and then another contented motorist was able to continue on their ride without any bother. The guy did not stop thanking me, and that is actually what helps make operating on Sundays in Camden a little bit less painful to me!

Wrong Fuel Doctor Deptford - Fuel Rescue Deptford

A woman from Deptford with her youngsters in her diesel daughter's Audi S6 had put £42 of petrol at the Co Op service station. She contacted us weeping and extremely upset as she had never filled up with the wrong fuel before and didn't know what might happen to her car . We told her that everything would be ok and that she would be ready to go very quickly. When we arrived she was visible distressed but as our fuel drainer began work on the fuel drain she simmered down since she noticed that help was at hand and her car wasn't unfixable. She soon enough brightened up and was on the road again saying, "I simply can't believe my luck putting petrol in my diesel vehicle! Especially with the kids in the back."

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 VA 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.
