fuel mix up at a petrol station has left drivers facing repair bills

Post by sidders » Tue Apr 25, 2017 4:02 pm

About a dozen motorists have taken to social media to report that their cars either broke down or “juddered along” after filling up at the Applegreen Petrol Station on Tremains Road in Bridgend on Tuesday morning.


One affected motorist, who set up a Facebook group about the issue, said he put what he thought was £25 worth of unleaded into his car, but it turned out to be diesel.

A spokesman for the company has apologised to customers and said they will reimburse their repair costs.

He said that in common with other companies they contract out their fuel haulage and the haulier had put the diesel into the unleaded tank, which then mixed with some unleaded fuel that was already in there, so those drivers which used the affected pumps received a mixture of the two.

You wouldn't have thought this stuff could still happen, it beggar's belief and on top of that there's a thread on here somewhere, a petrol station in Liverpool, the petrol coming out of the pump wasn't petrol or diesel it was WATER. seriously :x that is seriously poor and so is this :oops: Wow, lost for words.
