We had a call from a customer who had put in the wrong fuel in Crewe in their partners car and were quite worried.

“Auto Fuel Fix’s engineer came out super quick and calmed me down. He told me I should be ok and explained I’d done the right thing not starting the car. He told me he’d removed all the wrong fuel adn put in fresh diesel to get me to a filling station and advised me on what to do next.

Highly recommended!

Thank you Auto Fuel Fix for your engineers great service when I put the wrong fuel in my car up here in Crewe. Your engineer flushed my car through and left me with my car running normal again.

Thank you

Once of our customers managed to put wrong fuel in their car at a filling station in Crewe. Fortunately they’d only put in 3 litres before they relaised and called us.

“Thank you Auto Fuel Fix, you gave me great advice on the phone for free and told me I didn’t really need an engineer for such a little amount. I topped up my car with diesel to the max and will do as you advised, others would have took my money!

Thanks guys
