Water in Fuel

Asked by Lornita Papworth

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

HOPEFULLY you have a receipt showing the date and time you bought the fuel and, armed with the report from the dealership, go to the servo and show them they have a problem that may affect other motorists, and go to the fuel company and seek compensation for the cost you have incurred.
