It was close to five pm on a Saturday and even though we were assured a dry evening, it hadn't ceased raining! Ryan and I were seated commenting on the footy results, ready for the sixth job to come in. Finally we got a call from a woman on a company excursion who had pulled into the Tesco petrol station in Sidcup and filled petrol in a diesel yellow Fiat 500 hire car in error. She was pretty troubled apparently, telling me "I simply cannot believe that I have destroyed the car! I am so used to filling my petrol car that I totally did not remember I was driving a diesel!" I asked her to take it easy and not to be concerned, also that such things unfortunately happen. She was able to relocate the car to a safe position and, seeing as it was no more than a short distance away from us, we could find the lady rather quickly. The wrong fuel was removed so she was able to get back to the motel she was residing in. Even though we got really drenched, it was all rewarding to watch her drive away contented and a lot less stressed. Another job in Waltham Forest done well in my mind!

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

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Water contaminated fuel, no matter whether it's unleaded or diesel, is usually an important condition to address in a motor vehicle - particularly in more modern common-rail engines.

Water or AdBlue in petrol or diesel will often produce idling issues, uneven running, increased smoke and, if it's not remedied correctly, oftentimes broken injectors. Having water in petrol is easier to drain than water in diesel - this is primarily due to the fact that diesel is an oil. Even so we can take care of both circumstances quite easily.

You should know however that any time the vehicle was started with the water contamination it will most likely require a new fuel filter to be fitted simply because the old one will probably be thoroughly water-logged and unusable.

Waste Fuel Disposal

Have an old fuel reservoir sitting in the back of the garden containing aged, unusable or contaminated fuel? We could assist you to get rid of it. We've been called out to many domestic and business premises in Waltham Forest to deal with taking away and disposing of fuel storages. We are covered by the Environment Agency to enable us to get rid of and recycle waste fuel safely and legally.

Irrespective of whether the fuel storage is an underground tank, a mobile bowser, or even numerous drums in a garage, as long as we can access it, we could certainly empty it.

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.
