“Your engineer came out in record time and removed the wrong fuel from my car, a very pleasant engineer and a super quick service.

Thanks guys.

Our engineer was called out to a person who had put in the wrong fuel in Kenilworth, Coventry. The driver had filled up the tank with the wrong fuel and luckily not started the engine. Our fuel technician attended the scene, removed all the wrong fuel, flushed the fuel system and got the drive back on their journey.

Simply thank you Auto Fuel Fix
