It was the summer of 2016 and the referendum had just taken place. I had a phone call from a very distressed customer: “I think I have damaged my engine and the main dealer has quoted me £6,000 pounds to put it right” with a tremble in her voice. They advised the customer that she needed a new fuel pump, fuel lines, EGR valve and injectors.
The first thing to establish was whether the engine had been turned on and if so, had the vehicle been driven? The vehicle had been driven a short distance before the customer realised the contamination issue.
I explained our diagnostic testing process, how we could help to resolve the issue. Our invoice would certainly not be in the ballpark quoted from the main dealer.
Petrol mixed with diesel and diesel mixed with petrol. When a nightmare becomes reality, and the main dealer quotes you £6,000 to put it right!
Here are some tips:
- The minute you find out that you have put the wrong fuel in your car, pull over to a safe location and turn the engine off.
- If you at the petrol pump, inform the petrol station so they can provide assistance to move your car to a safe position.
- Call for assistance.
- Do not panic.
