Misfueled Porsche Proves to be an Expensive Mistake

Putting the wrong fuel in a car is an occurrence that frequently distresses people for a number of reasons. There is the feeling of embarrassment that you’ve made a mistake to begin with, and the disruption that can be caused by a vehicle that suddenly won’t move, but there is also worry over the damages that might have been caused to your vehicle, along with the subsequent amount of money that might be needed to rectify these issues.

For Alan Thompson, a businessman in East London, this latter situation became a stark reality this week, as he was quoted an astonishing sum of almost £15,000 to have a misfueled Porsche fixed. Mr Thompson had refuelled a courtesy car as a gesture of thanks to the friend who had loaned him the vehicle, but according to the Express he mistakenly did so using petrol, rather than the diesel that the Porsche had been designed to run on.

Mr Thompson offered to pay the damages and took the car directly to a Porsche dealership, but baulked at the colossal price that he was presented with. Having contacted several other Porsche representatives, he was quoted various alternative figures within the region of £5,000 to £10,000, before yet another garage in Enfield offered to conduct the fuel drain and fit a fuel filter for just over £1,000.

Clearly, this figure was vastly preferable to the first sum that was suggested to Mr Thompson, but it was still a substantial amount of money.
