Fuel Away could be with you within the hour.

Putting the wrong fuel in your car is more common than you think – in fact, 150,000 people do it every year in the UK alone. It's an easy mistake to make, and one that can usually be rectified on the road side. Thanks to our high technology equipment, we're usually able to completely clean your engine and top up your tank with 5-10 litres of fuel to see you on your way in less than 45 minutes. In the very few cases that draining the engine doesn't resolve the issue, we can provide recovery that will tow your vehicle back to your home or the destination of your choice. We offer wrong fuel recovery in Liverpool, Manchester and all over the North West of England.

Draining a petrol tank

We provide a 24/7, 365 day a year service, so you're always covered, day or night. We aim to be with you in less than 1 hour – which is usually less time than a recovery company will take to reach you on the road side – so that you can continue with your day as quickly as possible. We're also extremely competitively priced, providing an instant no obligation quote over the phone before any action is taken so you can decide whether or not to go ahead with our service.

Alternatively, if your engine does not require immediate action or recovery, we can schedule an appointment to the location of your car, be that at work, home, at a relatives or anywhere else, at a time that is convenient for you.

Lone female drivers will always take priority as part of our company policy to ensure the safety of all of our customers.

So what do we do during the fuel removal process?

If you've put the wrong fuel in your car, we offer wrong fuel recovery in Manchester or Liverpool, but we can also offer wrong fuel recovery anywhere in the North West or North Wales on a 24 hour, 7 day a week basis.
