Holden Colorado 2008: Blowback diesel

Asked by Robyn

I was filling my 2008 Holden Colorado RC with diesel when I got drenched with diesel as a result of blowback. I've been filling this car for many years and never had this happen. Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem. The Puma fuel station was new and had only been open three hours since renovation.

 It could be that they’ve replaced their pumps and the flow was too high for your car. Try tempering the flow next time you fill at that servo, and to be sure fill at another servo to see if it does it at other stations or it’s just related to the newly renovated one.
