The readers are growing
impatient to know the exact figure of wrong fuel draining. Many of you will
consider the previous blog a little bit of harangue. However, a preamble is
very important before jumping to the real matter. And from the last blog, you
also got to know that you should never drive your car away after wrong-fuelling
It is often said that
wrong-fuelling expenses could run into thousands of dollars. Well, that is not
the case always as you can manage it within a few hundred dollars. Let us just
have a look at the cost figure for wrong fuel draining service. We have listed
here three options for draining your car tank as well as cost associated.
Mobile Roadside Fuel Draining
Service Be ready to pay anything between £175.00 and £300.00
Fuel Drain & Recovery to a
Local Drainer You have to shell out more, say £300.00 to £400.00
Wrong Fuel Recovery to a Main
Dealer for an Under-Warranty Vehicle Cost may be a big headache for you as it
may go up as high as £2,000.00 £10,000.00
The first option provides you
with an advantage of immediate removal of wrong fuel (better to say,
contaminated fuel), enabling you to carry on with your travel to destination.
However, a major downside is it will not be able to address the problems in ancillary
equipments that have been out of order due to wrong-fuelling if the vehicle
fails to restart.
The second option provides you
with a greater scope to deal with associated issues if your vehicle does not
take a re-start. However, there is a major drawback of this option and it is,
the contaminated fuel will spend a long time in the car. That will add to the
cost of repair and recover as well as more car downtime.

The third option is, without a
shadow of doubt, the best of three. It will give you a peace of mind because
all equipments of the fuel delivery and storage system will be replaced (if
necessary). Downside? Well, you have to wait long to get the car back and do
not forget high cost of repairing.
