The 3 things you HAVE TO know about Wrong Fuel!

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Fuel contaminated with water, no matter whether it is unleaded or diesel, is certainly a significant condition to address in an automobile - specifically in current day common-rail engines.

Putting water or AdBlue in your fuel may cause idling problems, lumpy running, abnormal smoke and, if not taken care of effectively, potentially blown injectors. Water in petrol is easier to remove as compared with water in diesel - largely due to the fact that diesel is an oil. In spite of this we are able to deal with both situations pretty expediently.

Be aware though that whenever the vehicle has been run on the water contamination it will probably require a new fuel filter to be fitted as the old one is going to be thoroughly water-logged and ineffective.

They will be able to fix the standard troubles that might go along with running out of fuel - for example airlocks, vehicle not restarting, , as well as flat batteries as a consequence of over-cranking.

I had enjoyed a terrific day cycling during my afternoon off and felt satisfied the next morning as I set out to aid a new family on holiday in New Beckenham. They had conked out after putting the wrong fuel in their stylish Volvo C70, and the car was around an hour's travel away. I emerged at their car and laughed while I heard to the lady telling her man off for being so confused. "Exactly how could you actually manage to fill up by using the wrong fuel?" she demanded of him. I wanted to explain that this kind of thing occurs on a regular basis in Bromley and that it's nothing to be anxious about, but he yet still got an ear bashing by his better half. Unlucky lad. Anyway, I removed all of the polluted fuel, gave the motor a flush and filled it up with the appropriate fuel. While they drove down the road I mouthed farewell and wondered what my missus would say to me in the event that I made the same blunder... I would never live it down!

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.
