Fuel Contamination Drain-Off

If you’ve put the wrong fuel in your car, stay calm; it happens to over 100,000 of us in the UK every year! At AJ Automedics, our team can drain off the contaminated fuel for drivers in and around Durham, and clean out the fuel system to make sure that all traces of the contamination have been removed.

What to do after putting in the wrong fuel:

  • Leave your engine switched off and take your key out of the ignition
  • Put your car into neutral
  • Tell the petrol station staff and get someone to help you push your car into a safe place
  • Call AJ Automedics

If you’ve started driving after putting in the wrong fuel:

  • Turn the engine off as soon as you can stop safely
  • Put the car into neutral
  • Call AJ Automedics

You’re more likely to put petrol into a diesel car than the other way round because the petrol nozzle can fit quite easily into the diesel filter neck, whereas the diesel nozzle is bigger than the petrol one so doesn’t fit into modern most petrol cars. Unfortunately, putting petrol into a diesel tank causes more damage than diesel going into a petrol tank, that’s why the first thing to do is always to get in touch with AJ Automedics in Durham.

Most importantly, rest assured that the team at AJ Automedics will get you sorted and safely back on the road with the minimum of fuss.

As an Autocare garage, you can rest assured that all work done at AJ Automedics by our fully qualified technicians will be of the highest standard, and that we will respect the price quoted and the deadlines agreed. Our most important job is to look after our customers.
