Fuel recovery services is a phrase that covers several different things, but what exactly do we mean by that? A service can be defined as any action that attempts to recover or get rid of something. So if you pour petrol down the side of a car, and it goes down the slope at speed, then that’s called fuel recovery.
If you pump the same petrol down the same slope, but then leave it alone for some time, then that’s called static fuel recovery. And if you pump gasoline down the side of a car that has been damaged, then that’s known as hydrostatic fuel recovery.
So why is small amount of petrol in diesel engine the cause of so many problems around the? The biggest reason, in my opinion, is because some motorists are not aware of the potential damage that incorrect fuelling can cause. I know that this is an extreme example, but think about this for a second – if you poured petrol down the side of a bus, and it went up the side, would you assume that it would climb back out again? Most drivers probably wouldn’t.
However, the main reason that improper fuel is put in your car, and hydrostatic fuel recovery services are needed, is because the fuel has gone into the tank too far. Typically, this happens when drivers put in more petrol than they should, because of the advice given to ‘put in less’ on the manual, which is easily available from the car manufacturers.
Another common problem is to put the wrong fuel into the car because mechanics are lazy. They don’t like to do work, but they still need to earn a living. Therefore, they will push a fuel line through the middle of the car, whether there is sufficient fuel in the tank to keep it going or not.
This can lead to a whole host of problems, including fuel leaking, which is a very serious problem in itself. In addition, another problem that motorists who have accidentally put the wrong fuel in their car are the so-called’scummy’ smell coming out of the exhaust. This smell comes from the waste gases that leak out of the tailpipe. It may not smell that bad in the United States, where fuel is put in a huge tank right at the front, with all the exhaust gases flowing out the back, but it does stink. When it reaches your back door, it’s worse.
These are just a few of the problems associated with improper fuel use. The other main problem is that the fuel can get contaminated. This can lead to an assortment of different problems, such as the ‘funny smell’ that some people notice before you drive off, and the contaminated fuel leaching out into the atmosphere, which is referred to as smog. Some people have even noticed that their eyes and skin are starting to become sore. These are only a few of the effects of improperly used fuel, and the worst of them is the danger to the environment and human health.
Fuel is something that we take for granted. We leave it under the seats, on the dashboard, in the glove box, and even on occasions to light a fire if we are cooking up a little chicken. However, like all things, it is subject to misuse and should always be handled responsibly, and with the utmost care by professionals who know what they’re doing.
