When you go on holiday you might hire a car, we all like to go those sunny places but sometimes we forget to think about if the car is unleaded or diesel. If you have a diesel car at home and then suddenly you now have a petrol car, it's very easy to fill your diesel car with petrol and then realise your mistake before it's too late. We do have many contracts with many of the UK's biggest car hire companies so you may already be covered in the wrong fuel policy, however, if you are not or have not taken out this kind of policy for whatever reason, we are on call with our 1 hour call out service.
2 - Rushing - (Everyone Rushes!)
It goes without saying, when the sun is out we all tend to head to the coast or places of interest here in the UK, this can often cause panics at fuel stations and many of the feedback we get from customers is that they were rushing and not thinking straight. We get that, too much sun maybe? We are only after all human!
3 - After Buying A New Car
Many of our customers report putting the wrong fuel in their cars shortly after purchasing their new car, so many times (and we have done this ourselves) after moving from petrol to diesel or vice versa, we have gone to the pumps and reached for the wrong fuel pump and then began to fill. Here at Fuel Doctor we know this only too well, but fear not, if you have a nice new shiny car, your engine won't be ruined, the wrong fuel can be flushed out ensuring that your engine is kept in tip top condition at all times.
