Filled Up with the Wrong Fuel in Manchester?

If your mind’s been on something else, you’re having a bad day, or you’re driving a car you don’t usually drive, it’s an easy mistake to make, but just because it’s easy to accidentally put petrol in a diesel engine or diesel in your petrol tank doesn’t mean that it’s got to be hard to get rid of it.

If your misfuelling mishap comes in or around Manchester, here’s what you do:

Get off the Road

Running your engine with the wrong fuel in it? Best case scenario – the engine simply refuses to start, and the fuel that’s been cycled into an engine not designed for it starts to eat away at the engine, corroding it.

Worst case – the engine runs (poorly) and you therefore continue running it. Even more fuel is cycled through, meaning the corrosive reactions are quicker and can do more damage.

Don’t let this happen. Get off the road as soon as possible.

Our 6-Point Emergency Fuel Removal Process


Wrong fuel drain starts with emptying or draining incorrect fuel from your fuel tank.


Next step is to remove mixed fuel from the fuel lines and fuel filter.


Put 5-10 litres of fresh fuel into the fuel tank.


Fresh fuel needs to be pumped through the fuel lines and fuel filter to flushout any residual contaminated fuel.


Add high technology injection and fuel system cleaner (optional)


You are ready to go!


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.
