What is Misfuel Insurance?

A Misfuel insurance policy from Financial and Legal will cover the cost of draining a customer’s fuel tank if the wrong fuel has been used– either in situ or if necessary, the vehicle will be towed to a nearby garage.

What do we cover?

The fuel tank will be expertly drained, and we will even provide some fuel to get customers on their way again. 

Points to consider

The RAC estimate that around 150,000 motorists in the UK each year accidentally put the wrong type of fuel in their cars. It can be easily done if you are in a rush or in unfamiliar surroundings, for example. It is a far more common occurrence than you might think.

Putting diesel into a petrol vehicle can cause damage and inconvenience but putting petrol into a diesel vehicle and driving off can be catastrophic for the vehicle. Repairs can run into thousands of pounds and may involve replacing the whole fuel system. 

Aside from the inconvenience of putting the wrong type of fuel in a car, it can be expensive to get the fuel tank drained before continuing a journey.

It may be that a comprehensive motor insurance policy covers misfuelling but not all do. Some will require an extra monthly premium to give misfuel insurance cover. 

It is worth a customer their checking policy documents to see if a motor policy covers misfuelling.

True Solicitors

“Having been with a larger insurer we seemed to have become stagnant in waiting for decisions and also experienced a lack of innovation. The Financial and Legal team and their personal approach means we can now sell products with the confidence that we are providing our clients with maximum security and protection.”
