Even if you have driven the car we can get you back on the road within 45 minutes of arriving.
If the vehicle has been driven we drain the fuel tank and fuel system, then refuel the tank and flush the fuel system before starting the vehicle.
Have you put the wrong fuel in your car?
You’re not alone. It’s estimated that at least 150,000 drivers put the wrong fuel in their car each year, that’s one every three and a half minutes!
If you’ve put the wrong fuel in your car, don’t turn on the ignition or start the engine as this will circulate the contaminated fuel and increase the risk of damage.
Wrong Fuel Solution is a specialist roadside service that drains, flushes and replenishes vehicle fuel systems on the spot, saving the customer both time, money and inconvenience. We try and arrive within the hour and you car should be up and running in about 30 – 60 minutes.
Potential damage to your engine
Diesel fuel pumps operate on very fine tolerances and are lubricated by the diesel fuel itself.
Petrol in diesel acts as a solvent – it reduces lubrication and can cause damage to the pump through metal to metal contact.
Many systems use a low-pressure electric pump in the tank or sender unit and this begins to work as soon as the ignition is switched on, circulating the contaminated fuel through the pump and rail – so it’s important not to turn the ignition on.
