A customer called who had put in the wrong fuel in Birmingham in their hire car and were quite worried.

"Auto Fuel Fix's engineer came out and gave me a 1st class service. He told me I should be ok and explained I'd done the right thing not starting the car. He removed all the wrong fuel and put in fresh diesel to get me to a petrol station and advised me on what to do next."

Simply great!

Auto Fuel Fix engineers gave me great service when I put the wrong fuel in my car up here in Birmingham. Their engineer flushed my car through and l could get back on my journey in no time.

Thanks guys!

I topped up with the wrong fuel in Shirley and didn't realise until I had got to central Birmingham. The Auto Fuel Fix engineer came out and completely drained my vehicle and then put some fresh diesel in to get me to a forecourt. He advised me what to do in a couple of tank fills and sent me on my way.

Quality service and after care advice!
