Filled Up with the Wrong Fuel in Middlesbrough?

Put a tankful of petrol in your new diesel engine? Forgotten what your hire vehicle takes and reached reflexively for the wrong pump? Does your family car take diesel while this company vehicle uses petrol? It can be embarrassing, we know, but it happens more than you’d think – around 400 times a day across the UK.

Filling your car gets to be something you do on autopilot, and when something means that autopilot isn’t right anymore it can lead to problems.

So What Do You Do?

The most important thing to do when you realise what’s happened is to get out of the way of traffic and give us a call – you can contact us on 0800 193 1103 or 07538 889 922 – and we can respond to Middlesbrough callouts very quickly; you can expect us within the hour, providing you with a team of experienced technicians and our Mobile Fuel Drain.

Don’t Try to Drive

The damage trying to use the wrong fuel can do to your engine really begins once it’s cycled into the engine proper from the fuel tank. We’ll work to get it out of your system as quickly as possible, including a full cycle through your fuel lines and filter to flush out any residual contaminants – but it’s even better if you never turn the key and start it flowing in the first place.

Just writing to say thank you. I am very happy with the mobile fuel drain job you did on my Jaguar. After fuel drain, I have not had any problems with car at all. Thank you for professional fuel drain service, I found you to be very professional and knowledgeable and you arrived so quickly than I thought you would. Highly recommended company.

I would recommend Wrong Fuel Recovery to anybody who puts the wrong fuel in their car. I called them on a Sunday evening, and they were with me within 40 minutes. They emptied a full fuel tank, flushed the system, and had me back on the road within another 45 minutes. They were friendly, professional, and efficient.
