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, is certainly a serious condition to handle in an automobile - especially in modern day common-rail engines.

Having water or AdBlue inside your diesel or petrol can potentially contribute to idling difficulties, lumpy running, excessive smoke and, if it's not dealt with correctly, in some cases broken injectors. Having water in petrol is less difficult to drain in comparison with water in diesel - this is largely because diesel is an oil. However we can handle both cases pretty simply.

Take note though that so long as the vehicle was run on the water contamination it will very likely need a new fuel filter fitted seeing as the previous one will probably be thoroughly water-logged and useless.

I had a wonderful evening fishing during my day off and was feeling delighted the following day as I was on the way to aid a new family on vacation in South Norwood. They had broken down after adding the wrong fuel in their mom's Lexus LS, and were around an hour's travel away. I arrived at their location and smirked as I heard to the gal chastising her husband for turning out to be so foolish. "Just how could you actually manage to put the wrong fuel in the car?" she told him. I tried to tell her that this occurs frequently in Croydon and that it's nothing to stress about, nevertheless he all the same had his ear bent by his missus. Unfortunate chap. Anyway, I cleaned up and removed the polluted fuel, flushed the fuel system and gave them some appropriate fuel. Watching while they drove down the road I mouthed good-bye and pondered on what my wife would do to me if perhaps I made the same error... I would personally 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.
