Kia Sportage Fuel Drain
We attended a Kia Sportage Fuel Drain in Abergavenny today. Help Wrong Fuel received a call from a very angry wife of the owner of this Kia Sportage saying he had filled it up with unleaded fuel instead of diesel FOR THE THIRD TIME! It seems this poor driver was struggling to get into his head that his new car was in fact diesel and not petrol. Newer diesel vehicles run so much quieter than the older diesel engines so are often mistaken for petrol.
We attended the Kia Sportage fuel drain within 40 minutes of the call to our dispatch centre. Our fuel technician once on scene, started the fuel drain whilst the driver explained how he managed to fill his new Kia Sportage with the wrong fuel on three separate occasions.
If you manage to fill your vehicle with the wrong fuel it is always advisable to remove the wrong fuel straight away. You should not cause any damage as long as you remove the contaminated fuel quickly and don’t drive the vehicle. NEVER “top up” you may think you have gotten away with it for several weeks, possibly even months, but the damage will be done if your high pressure fuel system is exposed to the petrol solvent for a prolonged period of time.
