Petrol in Diesel is the most common way of misfueling your vehicle and happens around two hundred thousand times a year in the UK. The average cost of putting this right is three thousand pounds making the total some where in the region of sixty million pounds. This is a very lucrative business for the dealerships and it would not be in their best interests for the car manufactures to come up with a device that actually stops people from misfueling. At the moment there are several manufactures that have anti misfueling devices fitted to some of their vehicles but in our experience none of them are very effective.
Having said all this you DO NOT have to pay three thousand pounds to get your vehicle sorted petrol or diesel you shouldn’t have to pay any more than two hundred pounds.
