Did you know...

...that approximately 150,000 motorists every year fill up with the wrong fuel in every type of vehicle. Whether it's petrol in a diesel vehicle or diesel in a petrol vehicle one of the many excuses we keep hearing is because of many cars, of different fuel types, in the one household, just being distracted/tired or simply not being used to the vehicle can lead to misfuelling a vehicle. Another reason this a misfuel might be, is because of recently using a hire/lease vehicle or the car you have filled up with the wrong fuel may be a hire car. This term is commonly know as misfuelling and it is when the wrong fuel is put in a vehicle. The most common way of misfuelling a vehicle involves petrol into a diesel vehicle.

Our main aim is to get to you within the hour and back on the road within 40 minutes. On average our estimated time of arrival (ETA) for a technician to attend within Middlesbrough and the surrounding areas is 28 minutes and when on-scene our average repair time is 25 minutes. This depends on your vehicles make and model.

Where does the fuel go?

Its amazing how often we are asked this question. We recycle the wrong fuel mixture in a safe, approved and environmentally friendly way. The mixed fuel is stored in an approved storage tank which is owned by ourselves. The fuel is then taken away to a refinery by a waste management company - Refuels.co.uk. We are told the mixed fuel can be used to power heating equipment or also be used as a bio-fuel.
