Most people understand that if they put the wrong fuel in their car that our experts come out and sort the problem. Really that is all that you need to know, other than our phone number, as it is our job to deal with specialised fuel-related issues and for our mobile fuel drains to get you back on the road.
For those who are curious and want to know more we are available twenty four hours a day and seven days a week. This means that whether you are on your way to work or whether you are travelling back from seeing relatives in the middle of the night that we are on hand to help if you put the wrong fuel in your car. It is free to call us and the first thing you’ll be told by our technicians is to take your hand off the key in the ignition and to not turn the engine over.
When you mix diesel and petrol the fuel in the tank becomes contaminated, even if you only put a little bit of the wrong fuel in before realising. This mixture will damage your car in two ways. Firstly and very quickly if you turn over your engine the fuel will contaminate and damage the engine. This makes what could have been a very quick and affordable issue into a much more complicated one. Secondly, contaminated fuel is corrosive and will damage your fuel tank therefore the quicker it is dealt with the better for the health of your vehicle.
Our technicians understand that you want to get back on the road and as specialists we understand the importance of draining the fuel from your tank as quickly as possible. Our response time is stated as thirty to sixty minutes however the average time is just half an hour.
Our technicians are all qualified in both customer service and hold S.P.A and A.D.R licences so that you may be sure that you, your passengers and your vehicle are in the best of hands. Whether the problem is petrol in diesel car engines or diesel in a petrol engine we will empty your tank of contaminated fuel and if you drove the car will flush the fuel lines to remove any trace.
The process is quick, simple and painless, which is why our team here at Wrong Fuel Expert are the first people most drivers think to call to say “Help, I’ve put the wrong fuel in my car”. Do make sure that you save our number (0330 010 0511) both into your phone and on paper somewhere safe in case your phone battery dies and you need to give us a call.
