Vauxhall Corsa Fuel Tank Drain Cardiff
This late night Vauxhall Corsa fuel tank drain came in at 3am to our client care line. The poor lady had filled her Vauxhall Corsa Diesel to the brim with unleaded petrol at a Cardiff fuel station. She then drove her little Vauxhall Corsa for a further 5 miles before it started to cough and splutter. It was then she realised to her horror that she had used the wrong fuel at the Cardiff fuel station she had just visited.
A quick call to our client care centre put the young ladies mind at rest, she was assured that she had not caused any damage and we could get the wrong fuel out of the car and clean the fuel system at her home, and she was given an ETA of roughly 40-50 minutes. Our patrols cover all of the Cardiff area and can usually get to the stricken vehicle within 40-50 minutes, with priority given to lone females and families.
When our fuel technician arrived at the scene, the lady was still a little worried so he assured her all would be OK and he would show her all the work he was doing. 20 minutes later, the vehicle was empty of all the petrol, the fuel system was flushed and the little car was filled with diesel and started “on the button”. After a little bit of smoke from the contaminated fuel travelling through the filter system and a few coughs, the Vauxhall Corsa ran like a dream. The lady was completely relieved and thanked our fuel technician.
Being RAC, Trading Standards & part of an AA Approved workshop, we understand the need for clients to be assured that all will be dealt with professionally and in a timely manor.
