Wrong Fuel Walsall petrol in diesel Ford S-Max

Hi Simon

This a quick review from Lindsey Adamson (black Ford S-Max). You saved the day when I put the wrong fuel in my car while I was in Walsall a couple of days ago.

I would highly recommend Wrong Fuel Doctor if you have accidentally put in the wrong fuel like I did. I put a full tank of petrol into my diesel Ford S-Max and then tried to start and drive it. Not surprisingly it wouldn’t go and I didn’t realise until the forecourt attendant told me that I had bought 50 litres of unleaded petrol. I’m sure I would have gone into panic meltdown as the car is my friends and is only about 6 months old. My own car is a petrol Fiat Punto and I was only borrowing the S-Max because I was taking a group of kids (including mine) to the swimming pool. The only thing that stopped my panic was the fact that the forecourt lady told me that she had some business cards from a local fuel drain company. I didn’t even know what a fuel drain company was but I’m so glad that you are out there! I called up and said what had happened and then Simon was there in a flash. Sparkling van, smart uniform, big smile and lovely attitude. Simon was really polite and kind. He got on with the job and had that done very quickly indeed, even though I’d filled the S-Max up to the brim. Simon flushed the fuel system and cleaned it all up and then the car started up straight away with no hiccups or hassle. I was very impressed with all aspects of the service, I was expecting a major headache but that wasn’t the case at all with Wrong Fuel Doctor. Everything was sorted quickly and to a high standard. They are definitely the company to use after you’ve put in the wrong fuel.

Hope this is OK, Simon, and thanks very much indeed for your assistance.

Wrong Fuel Wolverhampton petrol in diesel Seat Ibiza

Dear Wrong Fuel Doctor team

My sincere thanks for helping me earlier. I couldn’t believe it when I realised I’d put petrol in my little Ibiza instead of diesel. I felt a right twit having to phone you guys for help but I’m glad I did, as the service was amazing. I’d heard a few horror stories about fuel drain companies including that one from the Watchdog programme on TV not so long ago. I was really wary but all the nice reviews on your site and on Google swung me and made me feel a bit more confident in phoning you guys. I think I spoke to Andy on the phone and he was really cool. No pressure sales or sarky remarks. He just gave me a price and asked me if I was OK with it. I was, because I had phoned the AA first and they gave me some ridiculous price and then told me I’d have to wait for a few hours as they had no-one near Wolverhampton to help! Might have to think twice about renewing with them. Your engineer was there in super fast time. I don’t think it was even half an hour since I had called. He was a really nice chap and he chatted away to me and explained all about the fuel drain process and all about the best garages in Wolverhampton too, as he knew the area quite well. The job was done to a high standard and also done really quickly. The customer service was top notch and I will definitely be letting others know that they should use you if they put in the wrong fuel. You managed to turn what I thought would be a major problem into a minor hassle which didn’t end up costing me anywhere near what I thought it might.

Well done guys and thank you very much,

Wrong Fuel Liverpool petrol in diesel Vauxhall Corsa

Hi Wrong Fuel Doctor team

Just a quick message from Dee in Liverpool. Jay came and removed the wrong fuel from my Vauxhall Corsa when I was driving through Liverpool city centre a couple of days ago. Sorry it’s taken me this long to send a thank you message but I have been really busy and wouldn’t have been if it weren’t for Jay’s excellent service. I stupidly filled up the whole tank of my Corsa with petrol because I was having a dumb moment and before I knew it I’d put in £50 of the wrong fuel. How embarrassed was I? It didn’t think I could be that dumb, but there we are! I felt such an idiot calling up the Wrong Fuel Doctor but I spoke to Jay and he reassured me that it was a fairly easy fix and it was a really common thing that happened all the time. I must admit that I didn’t know about mobile fuel tank drain services but then I’ve never needed one before. I called Wrong Fuel Doctor because I liked the professional website and the fact that there were so many lovely comments on there from previous customers, I felt like I’d called the right company and Jay was really nice on the phone too, so that was comforting. Jay was there in about 20 minutes and he was really pleasant. Nice manners and friendly chat. He obviously knew exactly what he was doing and got straight on with the job. He was even nice to my car even though it’s only an 8 year old Corsa with 120,000 miles on the clock! The service cost was a lot less than I was expecting too. At first I thought I would probably have to scrap the car if the engine was done for, but Jay assured me that a fuel drain would be enough to get it back on the road again. Sure enough, about 25 mins later he managed to get it to start and it sounded fine. He followed me down the road for a test drive and just checked everything was OK after about 2 or 3 miles as all of dash warning lights were flashing. He fixed that and then he was off. My little Corsa has been running as normal over the last couple of days with no bad after effects, so all good there.

Super service and smashing technician who is a credit to Wrong Fuel Doctor. Highly recommended.

All the very best

Dear Wrong Fuel Doctor Team

Thank you, thank you, thank you and, once again, thank you. I don’t know what I would have done without your help this morning. I was in a major pickle earlier after putting in the wrong fuel and I was panicking about what to do. Fortunately, I had my phone on me and there was some charge in it for once! I was on a pretty secluded road when I broke down and would have had to walk a couple of miles to get to a phone. I didn’t notice when I put in the petrol as my car had about a quarter of a tank of diesel and started up on the forecourt as normal. It got progressively more grumpy as I drove down the road, though, and then conked out altogether in the middle of a country road. Thank the heavens it was light! I dread to think what that would have been like at night! I found the Wrong Fuel Doctor on my phone and that seemed like an appropriate service for my poor sick car. I spoke to a lovely chap called Andy when I called and he was very reassuring. He put me on the priority list as I was blocking the road and came out himself to me about 45 minutes later, which was fast considering where I was. He put out his cones and got to work with the fuel drain whilst chatting away to me. I went from really panicky and scared to laughing and joking with a very nice man, he took all the stress out of the situation without even trying. Excellent manners and very professional too. The van was spotless as was all the equipment which didn’t look as if it had ever been used all though I’m sure it has! I felt really happy with the service and when the car started first time it was such a relief. I had the whole fuel drain and system flush service as the car had been running with a petrol/diesel mix in its tank but I was so surprised at how little the whole service cost. It was all so easy and hassle-free. You deserve a sparkling review and I hope everyone in the same spot as me can find you. I’ll pass on my praises if I know of anyone else who puts in the wrong fuel in Derby. I have heard a few of my friends mention it so as Andy says, it’s certainly not uncommon by the sounds of things.

Huge thanks once more and all the best with your business for the future.

An excellent night out with friends could have ended in a disaster and been much more expensive had it not been for the team at ‘Wrong Fuel Doctor’. We had stopped on the way to our restaurant (before having a drink !) to add £20 of Fuel and drove a further 5 miles to the restaurant. I started the car to drive away with an unusual sound from the engine. Stopped the car at the side of the road and realised we had put petrol in instead of diesel. We initially called the RAC who said they would respond as soon as they could and that we would receive a call when a responder had been allocated. No return call within 1/2 hour led us to calling the Wrong Fuel Doctor team. What an amazingly quick response! They arrived within 1/2 hr. Faisal from the Team was extremely polite, courteous and reassured us that he could get us on our way and not to be embarrassed as it is such a common situation. Having siphoned the petrol out, added in the diesel and additive, we headed towards the forecourt to add more fuel. Faisal, the gentleman that he was, followed us to the forecourt and waited for us to fill and re-start the car. He then followed us for a few miles to check we were all OK. Bearing in mind that we have since learnt that the RAC would have recovered us to home only and, if they could have, would have charged us double and then to add insult to injury we didn’t even receive a call back until we arrived home, anyway!!! Thanks to Faisal who is a great example and an ambassador for the team, ensuring the evening wasn’t spoiled despite the initial heartache. We have no hesitation in recommending the team and, for us, Faisal was the 4th Emergency Service. Appreciation and Thanks.
