New insurance product addresses the risk of mis-fuelling incidents

The firm, a specialist in roadside specialist recovery services, has designed the product in partnership with Andeva Underwriting Agency.

Under the standard package for private drivers, Auto Fuel Fix’s specialists attending the scene drain the contaminated fuel and ensure that the vehicle can be restarted to continue its journey with minimum inconvenience, waiting time, costs and further damage. In the extremely unlikely event that the vehicle may not be restarted, it is recovered to a repair garage at no charge (if within a 30-mile radius).

The firm added that the product can be tailored for fleet users, with bespoke packages to make it mutually convenient.

“Our mission statement is to get motorists up and running as quickly and painlessly as possible,” said Auto Fuel Fix MD Bruce Compton. “We’ve been established since 2009 and official records show that mis-fuelling is consistently responsible for widely-spread inconvenience and costs. Our brand new product is designed to address the reality of thousands of breakdowns on UK roads by offering our services for £20 a year, per car. Our near-100% success rate in getting affected cars back on the road guarantees peace of mind.”

“The alternative, of course, is to pay for a costly recovery service, garage repair fees, having one’s car off the road for a few days, and a final bill for anything between £3,000 and £5,000,” added Compton.
