One of our engineers attended a call to a driver who had put in the wrong fuel in Semilong, Northampton. The driver had luckily not started the engine after half filling the tank.

“Your engineer came out really quickly and drained my cars tank there and then. He put in some fresh diesel and checked my car ran ok. Once this was all fine I filled up with diesel this time and went on my journey.”
