Tesco admits fuel error at Hayes petrol station
Surinder Rehal from Colnbrook was one of the drivers affected by a cock-up at Tesco fuel station in Hayes where diesel was mistakenly put into the petrol tanks last week.
Tesco says only a ‘small number’ of drivers will have been affected following an error on June 12 that caused petrol tanks at the forecourt to be filled with diesel, according to getwestlondon.
Surinder had filled up at the Bull’s Bridge Tesco Extra petrol station on June 12, then noticed something was wrong with his Mercedes 350Cdi a couple of days later, after driving to a wedding in Birmingham. He has been quoted a staggering £11,000 to put it right.
A spokesman for Tesco said:
“We are sorry for this mistake and the small number of customers affected. We are working with all customers involved and their vehicles. As soon as the mistake was spotted both tanks were taken out of service.”
The article reports that this isn’t the first time that Tesco forecourts have made this mistake.
