The 3 things you SHOULD know about fuel contamination!

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Fuel contaminated with water, no matter whether it's petrol or diesel, is definitely an important situation to address in a motor vehicle - especially in present-day common-rail engines.

Having water or AdBlue inside your diesel or petrol can potentially cause idling issues, lumpy running, abnormal smoke and, if not addressed effectively, in some cases damaged injectors. Having water in petrol is a lot easier to get rid of as compared with water in diesel - primarily due to the fact that diesel is an oil. Nevertheless we are able to resolve both situations pretty expediently.

Bear in mind however that any time the vehicle has been started on the water contamination it will likely require a new fuel filter to be fitted as the old one will probably be thoroughly water-logged and ineffective.

Marine Fuel Drains

If you have the incorrect fuel, or contaminated fuel (most usually water contamination or degraded fuel) in a boat we can certainly clean it out. Assuming that the boat is either on land, or secured close enough to a car parking bay we are able to reach the tanks and remove the fuel. We have successfully done quite a few fuel drains at piers and boatyards nationwide.

Familiar Petrol in Diesel Warning signs:

Here is a list of very common wrong fuel signs and symptoms:

  • Lack of engine power
  • Vehicle cutting out, spluttering or hiccuping
  • Difficulties starting the car
  • Excessive smoke

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.
