Asda Fuel.

I put 100 ltrs of Asda's finest unleaded in the boat yesterday. We had a long day out with it with no issues. Today we had a 5knt tootal up the river for a cream tea with my 77yo Father.
On the way back the Icommands chirped in and read 'Water in fuel'. I cancelled them and 10mins later up it came again. Anyway, I hauled the boat out and brought it home. I first removed the engine filter and poured the contents into a jamjar, it was half water!!. I then removed the inline filter, that was half fuel and half brown sludgy sh*t.

I know that aluminium tanks can produce condensation, but not brown, sludgy sh*t. I emptied both filters, replaced them, ran it up and checked the in-line filter again, it was fine.

It's not good to pay 100.9/Ltr to buy crap to put through one's pride and joy.

Ahh but remember Asda only get about 3p of that - it is 70% the governments fault........

I would make a serious complaint to Asda - you may not be the only one and you may get compensation!!!

And there's defiantly no way it could have been contaminated after you filled up?
Your engine sounds rough Mollers, think Asda should buy you a new one
