We received a call from a lady on a forecourt in Halifax after she had put the wrong fuel in her car. Our engineer was out to the lady within 15 minutes and removed the petrol in diesel. Our engineer then ensured the vehicle started and ran ok with fresh diesel.

“Thanks for your help with my misfuelling incident.”

A great company.

The engineer came out to me after I’d put the wrong fuel in my company car in Halifax. I was so stressed as I’d only got the new company car the week before and I’d put petrol in diesel! The engineer reassured me and removed all the contaminated diesel. He put in some fresh diesel and got me back on my way.

I can’t thank Auto Fuel Fix enough.

So petrol in diesel, it could never happen to me I thought.. So here I am on the side of the road in Halifax with the wrong fuel in my car. Luckily I realised 2 minutes down the road and pulled over. Auto Fuel Fix came out and drained all the wrong fuel, gave me some fresh diesel and got me on my way.

Much appreciatted.
