New service for misfuelling

The number of motorists who put the wrong fuel in their car has doubled over the last 10 years.

It is estimated that at least 150,000 drivers misfuel each year – one every three and a half minutes – generating around 7.5 million litres of contaminated fuel.

Now the AA has launched a national service - AA Fuel Assist - a roadside service that drains, flushes and replenishes vehicle fuel systems on the spot.

The AA is investing around £1.7 million in AA Fuel Assist, which retrieves the contaminated fuel and ensures that it is recycled through a waste management company.
