Auto Fuel Fix came out after I had put the in the wrong fuel in Manchester. The car was not my usual vehicle and a hire car, which lead to me putting petrol in a diesel tank.

The technician arrived quickly and removed the wrong fuel from the vehicle in a super quick time. He said fortunately I had realised I’d put in the wrong fuel before starting the vehicle which meant once fresh correct fuel had been added after a system flush, their would be no damage to the vehicle and the hire company would be non the wiser.


So I realised I’d put in the wrong fuel with petrol in my diesel car as I started the engine. You can imagine my horror as I was driving my husbands car. I found Auto Fuel Fix and gave them a call, their engineer came to my location in Manchester really quickly.

The technician was polite and calmed my nerves saying there should be no damage. After removing the wrong fuel, he put in some fresh diesel to get it started and then left me to get on my way.

Thanks Auto Fuel Fix team!

I put the wrong fuel in my car, I’d just changed from a petrol car to a diesel one. I got to about 15 litres and then I realised, I’m putting in the wrong fuel! So I found Auto Fuel Fix online and they came out to my location really quickly.

After a drain and flush of my engine and fuel system, Sham put in some fresh diesel to get the car started and then left, after reassuring me no damage would have been done and I could no fill up with the correct fuel and be on my way.

Great friendly service.
