Re: Wrong fuel in car - Swiss garage response.

View Post
Some stupid, stupid, stupid idiot forgot he was driving his daughter's petrol car, not his own diesel car, and managed to put 8.5l of diesel in with 26.5l of unleaded. So about 25%. Drove a further 5km before realising.

I... I mean, he... ok, I admit it. It was me...

I called my travel insurance, and through them talked to a garage. Of course, we're on holiday and have to move out of our holiday apartment at 10am tomorrow. A guy should turn up tomorrow morning at 9am. The car is in the apartment block car park.

I know the tank needs to be drained, refilled etc. I'm just wondering if anyone has had experience of this in Switzerland. I know in the UK it can be done in situ; do they/can they do that here?

can be done situ in any Carrozzeria
