Seat Ibiza TDI engine failure due petrol misfuel on busy road in Preston City Lancashire.
The driver of this SEAT IBIZA turbo diesel came to an abrupt stop at traffic lights on a busy Preston cross roads shortly after fueling the car.
Passer’s by stopped to help push the vehicle clear of the crossing after the engine failed to restart.
The driver wasn’t sure of the reasons as to why the engine had cut out until further investigation was carried out by her partner who arrived on scene shortly afterwards.
After multiple attempts to start the engine had failed, a quick inspection of the car’s filler cap revealed a strong smell of petrol odour emitting from the hatchbacks filler neck.
It was then that WrongFuelMan was contacted via telephone.
