Wrong Fuel Coventry petrol in diesel Vauxhall Astra

Hi Fuel Medic

How’s everyone doing there? It’s Calvin Tower here from Coventry. I just wanted to pass on my thanks to the engineer and the Fuel Medic team who helped me out with my Vauxhall Astra yesterday night. I was on my way home from work and I was really tired. I wasn’t thinking straight and I managed to pick up the green nozzle instead of the black one and before I knew it there was 30 litres of the wrong fuel type in my tank. I’d never done anything like that before but I knew a few people who had after buying new diesel cars and being used to driving petrol ones. The first thing I did was call up one of my buddies who put petrol into a diesel Mercedes A class a short while ago, to ask him what he did to fix the problem. He said that he called the dealer who arranged for a tow truck and then took a week to fix his motor and charged him over £600 to get it sorted! I began to panic at this stage because I didn’t have that kind of cask to throw at the repair. I used my phone to search for “wrong fuel Coventry area” and I found your site on the top of the search. I called and spoke to Andy and when I asked about cost, I was immensely relieved to find out that I would be paying less than a quarter of what my mate paid and the job would be done in less than an hour! My mate will be furious when I tell him!

Andy sent out an engineer who was there after about 30 minutes, driving a very cool van loaded with super techy equipment. He was very courteous and respectful and he treated my little old Astra very nicely indeed. He had the wrong fuel removed and the engine flushed clean in about 20 minutes. The car started first time and ran like new! I’m not usually in the habit of writing reviews for companies, but in your case I was so impressed by the service that I thought I should. I would recommend the Fuel Medic without hesitation and will do so if I get the opportunity. I’m going to stick your card on the notice board at work. I won’t tell them it was me though because they’ll just take the mick!

Super service guys, very well done and massive thanks,

Wrong Fuel Manchester petrol in diesel VW Golf GTtdi

Hi Fuel Medic Team

This is Carl Foster here from Manchester. I drive the black VW Golf GT tdi that you came out to yesterday evening when I was on my way back from work and I put the wrong fuel in it like an idiot. I was so angry with myself for doing that because I know several people who have done the same thing and I am guilty of having taken the mickey out of them a bit! Boy are they going to have the last laugh when they find out that I’ve done it too! I had to swallow my pride and call one of them to find out who to call to get the wrong fuel removed from your car. You were recommended to me for a wrong fuel Manchester problem as you have a guy covering Manchester and its boroughs. Thankfully my buddy told me that the fuel drain wasn’t expensive and that his car was fine afterwards and has been ever since so at least I was confident that the problem would be solved properly. I was really impressed as well with the response time, particularly in bad rush hour traffic, your man was there in just over 40 minutes which seemed to be no time at all after I’d told the forecourt guy what had happened and got myself a coffee and some food from the shop. He showed up in a sparklingly clean van and smart uniform which gave me confidence straight away and he got straight on with the job and kept me informed about what he was doing as he went along. He obviously knew his stuff and did a great job, checking everything as he went along and taking great care of my car too. He was all done with the fuel drain in about 20 minutes and then he reset the ECU and was done. The whole thing from phone call to me getting back on the road was only just over an hour. I thought I would lose the whole evening! Excellent service guys, all aspects were brilliant. Low cost, fast response, thorough job and the car is running great. I will definitely be recommending you if any of my freinds or family have a wrong fuel Manchester problem.

Wrong Fuel Birmingham Diesel Ford Kuga

To the Fuel Medic

I am not normally the type who sits down and writes reviews for companies that I use as I am not great with computers but I thought that in the case of your company, I should make the effort. I would like to let you know what a wonderful job your engineer, Andy, did when he came out to myself and my wife after I put petrol into my new Ford Kuga instead of diesel. When I realised that I had put in the wrong fuel I had already put 30 litres into the tank so I knew that it wouldn’t be safe to drive if I filled up with diesel on top of it. The car is new and so I was very worried about the effect that the petrol would have on the engine. One of the other gentlemen on the forecourt searched on the internet on his phone for me and found your number and wrote it down for me. I first called the AA but they were expensive and not very helpful, I called your number and was quoted a lower price and a faster response time. Andy arrived very quickly and was extremely pleasant, well mannered and reassuring. He got straight on with the fuel drain and was very careful with my new car. The job was done quickly and I was impressed with Andy’s uniform, his spotless van and spotless fuel drain equipment. I think the respect shown to myself and my wife was the main reason for sending this message, though. It was very refreshing to encounter such a pleasant young man. I will most certainly recommend your company and I will retain your card just in case I am absent minded in the future, although, hopefully, I have learned my lesson!

Many Thanks for the wonderful service,

Len and Yvonne Colman, Wrong Fuel Birmingham, diesel Ford Kuga

Wrong Fuel Birmingham BMW 320 diesel

Hi Fuel Medic, just a quick message to say thank you ever so much for all your brilliant help with getting me back on the road after I stupidly put petrol in my BMW 320d instead of diesel. I must have been half asleep and I could have cried when I realised what I’d done as I needed to get to work early and had a really busy day for which I needed my car. Andy, your engineer was there in super quick time and he wasted no time in sorting out the fuel drain and getting my car started up again. I’ve never been so happy as when he started it up and it went first time. It’s been running well since so I haven’t done any damage to it, thank God. I’ll keep your card in my handbag in case I need you again, hopefully I’ve learnt my lesson though. If someone else is in a similar spot though, I may be able to help by passing on your number. I would certainly recommend your brilliant service to others. Thanks again.

Wrong Fuel Birmingham Vauxhall Astra diesel

Hi Fuel Medic, this is Laney from Birmingham here. I had the red Vauxhall Astra diesel that I put petrol in at the station in Harborne this morning. Just a quick message to pass on my heartfelt thanks to your mechanic who sorted out the problem for me so well. He was there in a flash and explained everything to me clearly that he needed to do. He also made sure I was OK with the cost before starting any work, there was no pressure sales and the cost was surprisingly low for the work that needed doing. I thought I was in for a massive repair bill but that wasn’t the case and I was very relieved indeed! I will be recommending your company to everyone I know, just in case they need you too, although I am sure they will all have a good laugh at me for being such a fool and filling up with the wrong fuel. Your engineer mentioned that there are 149,999 other people that do the same thing every year, so I didn’t feel so bad then!

Many Thanks

Laney Smith, Wrong Fuel Birmingham, diesel Vauxhall Astra

Wrong Fuel Wolverhampton Vauxhall Astra

Thank you Fuel Medic for removing the petrol from my diesel Vauxhall Astra after my son accidentally filled it up with the wrong fuel. He was all ready to buy me a new engine and was ever so relieved when I told him to call you instead. I found you on the internet and liked your website so I gave him your number and he said that your service was really impressive. Quick and professional were his words and you obviously did a great job as the car has been fine since with no rough running or issues since. I’ve put a sticker on the fuel flap now so hopefully the same thing won’t happen again but I will tell anyone else that I know of who makes the same mistake, who to call.

Thanks again

Petrol in Diesel Redditch Ford Fiesta

Huge thank you and massive well done to Simon who got me out of the mire this morning. I was the twit who filled up a diesel Ford Fiesta with petrol at the Shell in Redditch just before lunchtime today. I was on my lunch break and thanks to your fast service I still got back into work before the boss went barmy. I didn’t even know about you wrong fuel removal guys before my colleague told me to call you as she has used the Fuel Medic in the past which she confessed to me, and it was her that noticed what I was doing before I’d put too much in. Thanks to her I was only a tenner down in fuel when I stopped filling up. I did the right thing then though and called you before trying to start it or anything. Simon was there like a shot and had us back on our way in no time.

Great service guys, thanks from one very happy motorist.

Petrol in Diesel Cannock Nissan Qashqai

Thanks Andy for your help with my Nissan Qashqai earlier. Not sure what I was thinking putting petrol in it rather than diesel but let’s just say my mind was elsewhere! All running superbly since though thanks to your hard work and you can add me to your “happy customer” list on your website as requested, because I am a happy customer! Sorry about being a big wuss and having a panic on the phone but my poor car did not sound happy when it conked out, I thought I’d completely killed it when it dawned on me that I’d put in the wrong fuel type and it cost me an arm a leg to buy. Unlike your charge which was tiny in comparison to what I imagined my error was going to cost me. So, thanks for that too. I still have money for the weekend!

Brilliant service, would use again, hope I don’t need to though!

Ta very much

Petrol in diesel Coventry Skoda Superb

Hello Fuel Medic Team – I just wanted to let you know how grateful I am for your assistance with my Skoda Superb after I put petrol in it rather than diesel a few days ago. It’s running well and has been down to Bristol and back a couple of days since, without any hiccups. The mechanic who came out to me was really helpful and reassuring because I was in a right panic thinking that the car would need a new engine and all sorts as I had started and driven the car. A fuel flush and drain seems to have put right the wrongs anyway. I’ll keep your card in case I daydream again at some point in the future and put in the wrong fuel, but I think I’ve learned my lesson now. I’m always seeing poor souls who have done the same thing at the petrol station though so next time I will pass on your number.

Many Thanks for the great service

Wrong Fuel Birmingham VW Passat

Hi Fuel Medic – Thanks to Andy who saved the day yesterday. I put the wrong fuel in my VW Passat in Birmingham on the Pershore Road early yesterday morning and I was surprised how fast you got to me and impressed with the service as a whole. You are certainly very different from a lot of mechanics that I have met! Your courtesy was a real treat and made me feel a whole lot better about the situation as I was expecting it to be a real hassle. Andy was there quickly, got the job done quickly and was very professional and pleasant. It really gave me confidence that I had called the right fuel drain company and I will be putting in a good word with my boss as my company runs a fleet of cars and I know that others have put petrol in diesel cars too in the past.
