1. STOP DRIVING

Remember: Putting your ignition on, even without starting the car, primes the fuel pump and starts the wrong fuel circulating.

Safety First

If you find yourself pulled over at the side of a main road after realising you’ve put the wrong fuel in your car, make sure all your occupants are moved to a safe place, especially if your vehicle is at the side of a busy A road or motorway.

Testimonials

If you put the wrong fuel in your car in Derby, give Auto Fuel Fix a call. Their engineer came out in under 40 minutes, removed the wrong fuel and flushed my car in no time. Once he’d put fresh diesel in my tank I was on my way.

Great!

I had just left my home in Derby when I put the wrong fuel in my car, I was so annoyed with myself. Auto Fuel Fix came out quickly and removed the wrong fuel from my Mondeo and got me back on my way with enough fresh diesel to get me to a filling station. The engineer advised me on what to do to ensure no damage to my engine and fuel system.

A big thank you.

The engineer came out to me in Derby after I’d put in the wrong fuel. I’d put over half a tank in when I’d realised, the engineer kept me calm and drained the petrol/diesel mix from my car. He put in some fresh diesel and made sure the car ran fine and left me to put the correct fuel in my car.

great service with no hidden extras!
