Hell and high water

Asked by Lornita Papworth

AFTER filling the tank of my Peugeot 308 HDi recently, the on-board sensors indicated they'd picked up water in the fuel and filters. A check at a dealership found the ratio of water to diesel was at least 10 times the acceptable limit. How does the consumer go about taking on the supplier of the fuel?

A HOPEFULLY you have a receipt from the servo showing the date and time you bought the fuel, and armed with the report from the dealership showing the water content, you need to go to the servo to show them they have a problem that might affect other motorists. Also, go to the fuel company involved and seek compensation for the costs you've incurred.
