Are You Looking For Incorrect Fuelling Solutions?

Melanie Kamdar
March 5, 2014

Incorrect fuelling solutions are highly valuable when you have a misfuelling (putting petrol in a diesel engine or diesel in a petrol engine) mishap or emergency.

It is estimated that as many as 150,000 drivers in the UK put the wrong fuel in their vehicle every year. So if you ever put petrol in your diesel car or vice versa, then you are not alone. It is a very common mistake to make.

So if it happens to you, what incorrect fuelling solutions are available?

The fastest and easiest way to get your vehicle back on the road after a misfuelling incident is to have your tank drained down. If you have realised your mistake before starting your engine, this can be a quick, and relatively painless process. There are mobile fuel draining services companies all over to UK, and most can come out to you within an hour.

A mobile fuel draining specialist will come to your aid if you have inadvertently put the wrong fuel in your vehicle, they should be able to provide you with a fuel draining service on petrol station forecourts, at the roadside, whilst at work or home. In fact wherever your vehicle is, they will be able to help.

This on the spot, professional service can save you time and money, we all know how frustrating it can be waiting for breakdown services, only to see your car towed away to a garage, not knowing how much the repair will cost or how long you may have to wait, hours or days in some cases.

With roadside, fuel draining, you can now avoid expensive repairs and the inconvenience of having your vehicle towed away.

So what exactly does a fuel draining service do?

There are a few steps to a complete fuel drain. These include: -

Draining the wrong fuel from the vehicle's tank

Flushing the fuel system through to ensure it's free of the incorrect fuel

Replenishing the fuel system with fresh fuel

Once the drain down is complete, a proper mobile fuel drain company will ensure environmentally friendly recycling of contaminated fuel. Check to see if the company you choose is an Environment Agency approved carrier. This is important, as you don't want rivers or drains polluted with the fuel you have mistakenly put into your engine.

The process shouldn't take too long either. In fact, most fuel drains are completed within an hour. Meaning that one easy to make mistake shouldn't end up ruining your entire day.
