Petrol in your Diesel car in London and Looking for a fuel draining company in London?
If you are lucky enough enough to misfuel you might as well do it in the big smoke, we have 7 vans in and around london 24 hours a day performing mobile fuel drains in London.
The nature of the beast dictates that a fuel drain in london needs attended very quickly, london is a busy place and sitting in a broken down car blocking a road in London could be considered one of life's more unpleasant experiences, which is why we maintain such a large fleet to cope with times of heavy demand.
Because there are so few petrol stations in london in relation to cars on the road, they are very busy all the time, and when a misfuelled car is blocking a pump for hours at a time tensions can run high between the victim of the misfuel and the station manager, a broken down car at a pump can effectively close that lane in the petrol station, for a 2 lane station this means 50% of trade is lost whilst the car is sitting stranded, and just like any other business petrol stations in London dont like to run at 50% capacity.
If you are at a pump and the station attendants or other motorists are adding to your frustration and embarrassment you could ask for assistance to push the car off the pump and into an area that does not block the flow of trade, only do this if it is safe to do so, moving a car off the pump is the first thing we do on arrival to a station, we cannot work on a car at a pump for health and safety reasons.
If your sitting in a london petrol station in an automatic, and have misfuelled, there is always a way to engage neutral without starting the engine - so that the car can be moved off the pump, the instructions for this are in your owners handbook, or you could consult good old google on your phone, we have been trained in all types & makes of cars and moving an automatic without starting it is never a problem for us.
Our london vans are all controlled by tracking, which means we avoid the worst snarl ups and jams and can always dispatch a unit closest to you at the time of your call - which makes for a very fast responce time whether you are in St Albans, Dartford, Slough, Kingston or Mayfair or anywhere else in and about London we will have a van within 20 minutes from you at any time, 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
