• There are 150,000 mis-fuelling incidents a year on UK roads
• Every four minutes, someone puts the wrong fuel in their car
• Costly recovery and repairs are a thing of the past
The UK’s largest independent roadside specialist recovery services, Auto Fuel Fix has just launched Fuel Protect, a £19.99-a-year insurance product which will address the risk of misfiling incidents and substantially minimise both costs and consequences.
“Our mission statement is to get motorists up and running as quickly and painlessly as possible,” says Auto Fuel Fix MD Bruce Compton. “We’ve been established since 2009 and official records show that mis-fuelling is consistently responsible for widely-spread inconvenience and costs. Our brand new product is designed to address the reality of thousands of breakdowns on UK roads by offering our services for £20 a year, per car. Our near-100% success rate in getting affected cars back on the road guarantees peace of mind.”
Mis-fuelling is more common than you think
Every four minutes someone in the UK will put the wrong fuel in their car. Auto Fuel Fix’s specialists drain the contaminated fuel and ensure that the vehicle can be restarted to continue its journey with minimum inconvenience, waiting time, costs and further damage. In the extremely unlikely event that the vehicle may not be restarted, it is recovered to a repair garage at no charge*.
“The alternative, of course, is to pay for a costly recovery service, garage repair fees, having one’s car off the road for a few days, and a final bill for anything between £3,000 and £5,000,” adds Bruce. “…and for those who wonder, our records show that there is no real gender bias: men are just as likely to put the wrong kind of fuel in their car as ladies are.”
Fuel Protect, which covers up to two mis-fuelling incidents a year, can be purchased online.
