- There are an estimated 150,000 misfuels in the UK each year
- 95% of them are people putting petrol into diesel vehicles due to the wider diesel filler neck and narrower unleaded nozzle
- Growing problem over last five years due to the high sales of diesel cars, improved and refined diesel engine technology and the rise of multi-car ownership
- Largely a UK problem - continental Europe has had a higher penetration of diesel cars for longer, so it's not as big an issue
- Can be very expensive for some vehicle owners: manufacturers often recommend change of parts (as high as £5,000+) and garages often charge £300+ for a fuel drain.
Wrong Fuel Removal has a swift and reliable fuel drain system to remove incorrect fuels from car, van & truck tanks including safe disposal of the contaminated fuel.
- Empty fuel tanks cost motorists much time, delayed journeys, traffic hold-ups and damage fuel systems when running 'dry'
- Fill up at the start of your journey and have an idea of your vehicles consumption to plan service/petrol station refills and rest stops.
Some of our many satisfied customers have left feedback remarks:
I was really worried that I’d done terrible damage to my engine by putting the wrong fuel in my tank and driving the short distance home but Alan was very reassuring on the phone. He turned up on a Saturday evening within the hour, as promised, and sorted out the problem very quickly. Thanks Alan – excellent service! Kind regards Lesley Roberts
Just want to say thanks for coming out today. From Warrington to just north of Lancaster all done and dusted within 2 1/2 hours. The AA were not available until Monday and they were 60 pounds more. Great friendly service for anyone who makes a stupid mistake 5 stars
Just a message to say thank you for the prompt and efficient way you got my car back on the road. I am impressed with your manner, no fuss, no drama just a job well done
Five star rating from me.

Hi Alan, Thanks for coming so far and so late to take care of my fuel mistake, Was worried with it being so late and the neighbours being kept awake, but he was very quick and quiet and profesional. My car probably not the easiest to sort as i had driven it a couple of times, replaced a crank sensor and fired the poor car up with easy start but Alan had me going in no more than 30 minutes, Very happy saved as alan the fuel legend for future mistakes :). Thanks again
Hi Alan, I just wanted to say a big thank you for coming out to me so late at night last week. As you know, I was badly let down by a national company who kept me waiting for an hour and 40 minutes, then told me that they wouldn’t be able to come after all as the mechanic had disappeared and just told me to find someone else! I was very cold and upset and thought I would be there all night, but thank goodness I found your number. I am very grateful to you for dropping everything and getting to me as quick as you could. You did a fantastic job, and you were much cheaper than the other company who failed to turn up – I just wish I had rung you in the first place Thanks again,
TO CUT A LONG STORY SHORT WE FILLED OUR ASTRA PETROL CAR AT A GARAGE IN KESWICK WITH WHAT WE THOUGHT WAS PETROL BUT IT HAD A LARGE CONTENT OF WATER IN IT DUETO LOCAL FLOODING AT THE GARAGE ALAN CAME OUT EARLY THE NEXT DAY REMOVED THE FUEL TANK CLEANED IT OUT AND ALL THE FUEL LINES AND INJECTORS THE CAR THEN RESTARTED AND WE WERE ABLE TO FINISH OUR HOLIDAY AND DRIVE HOME TO CARDIFF A BIG THANK YOU FROM THE HINDLEY FAMILY
Having wrongly filled my motor homes fuel tank with water I then contacted Alan to explain the problem. He came over and removed the fuel tank from my large Mercedes based motor home drained and cleaned out the tank refitted and filled with fresh diesel started and made sure all was ok, checked for leaks. All in all, a superb job by a man who I would not hesitate to recommend

Very impressive, it was friendly, fast and efficient service that I highly recommend to anyone finding themselves in this unfortunate situation.
Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you, Alan. As a driving instructor I'm always so conscious put in the correct fuel, and can't believe that as a result of just a moments lack of thought it could have cost me hundreds of pounds to have my car drained at my Toyota main dealer. I'm glad that I found you! I'm so grateful that you drove over an hour to sort my car out, and at a fraction of the cost that I would have had to pay at the dealer. Your knowledge and experience is obviously immense, and I felt really confident leaving my car in your capable hands. To anyone out there reading this, put your trust in Alan; he does a good, professional job, and at much less than you'd have to pay at a main dealer. Thanks once again.
Can't fault the service. Arrived within the timescales quoted, provided a clean and tidy service, no mess, no fuss and was at all times polite and courteous. Thanks again!
So, our diesel 2002 VW Passat TDI (V6) got filled with unleaded for the 3rd time! It was pretty much empty when it was filled with £15.00 of unleaded. The car was driven until it stopped. At this point the fuel problem wasn't noticed. Green Flag recovered the car and diagnosed the problem as being a faulty turbo. After some checking it was discovered that the problem was actually that it'd been filled with unleaded. I was totally gutted about this because on both previous occasions the cost of getting this sorted was well over £900.00. To make matters worse I was supposed to be driving to a festival later that week. After a bit of searching I came across Alans website. In all honesty I really wasn't sure if attempting to repair a problem that had previously been unrepairable was a good use of my resources... When this happened before, parts were (allegedly) replaced and the last thing in the world I wanted to do was spend good money trying to fix something that couldn't be fixed. I weighed up the pros and cons and decided that whatever happens, the unleaded has to be drained and the fee for doing this alone was a very reasonable price. I also got the impression Alan really did know what he was talking about and although it was possible that this was just a sales tactic, it didn't seem like that was the case. So, I gave Alan a bell and booked a visit! To say I was happy with the outcome is an understatement!! I hugged the guy!!! I arranged to meet Alan at a time that was convenient for me. Alan came out, was bang on time and quickly set about draining all the unleaded. He did some other hocus pocus and about 20 mins later asked me to give it a go... Hey presto!! After a short crank the engine started!! I've saved a fortune and for the very first time ever I feel like I've dealt with a mechanic without being taken for a ride! If you make a fuel cockup call Alan - Simple!! I dread to think what could have happened if I didn't.
After regrettably fuelling my brand-new car with £20 worth of petrol I didn’t know what to do. I was browsing on the net where I came across this site with all the amazing feedback. I rang Alan instantly and he was here within the hour! The service was great along with the price which was cheap considering the mistake that I had made! My advice to anyone whoever makes the same mistake to ring Alan as he saved my car with the great service he had to offer so I would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU FROM US!!!!!!
I put £30 of Petrol in my diesel Freelander 2 and drove it 5 miles home, car juddered a little bit just 200m from home but I didn't think anything of it. 10 mins later went back to car to go out again and it wouldn't start up. I even swore blind to my husband that I was 99.9%sure I had put diesel in as I had gone to the expensive diesel pump first and backed up to the other one...but on opening the cap there was a hiss and it did smell of petrol so I had to concede. My husband wanted to tow it to our garage 10 miles away but I read the reviews on here and thought I would ring. What a genuinely honest and helpful man Alan is. He came on a miserable December Sunday and sorted the car out very efficiently and the cost was very reasonable considering it included fuel with additive. So if you are reading this wondering who to try then I have no hesitation in recommending this man. Thank you once again Alan....I am now going to google for a device to stop me making the same mistake again.
After returning from a holiday break, I committed the age-old classic trick of filling up with the same fuel I had been using whilst away! An expensive mistake, but made easier and more bearable by the fantastic care, communication and very competitively priced Alan. Will come highly recommended by me, should anyone else find themselves in the same situation. Cheers Alan.
