Drivers who put water-contaminated diesel in cars at Applemore Tesco told to contact store

Motorists who put water-contaminated diesel in their cars at a supermarket petrol station have been told to get in touch with the store.

A raft of drivers took to social media this week to complain about problems with their cars after filling up with diesel at the Tesco station in Applemore.

One said: “Just went in there on way home from work, two [broken down] on right in front of tyre area, three cars’ bonnets up. One on way to roundabout broke down and three on bypass broke down. Awful for them all!”

A spokesperson for Tesco confirmed the contamination: “Some of the diesel pumps at the petrol filling Station at our Hythe superstore are currently closed whilst maintenance work is conducted after rain water leaked into one of the fuel storage tanks last weekend.

"We apologise for the inconvenience caused and ask any customers who have concerns after refuelling at this site to contact our customer services team.”

Those affected should ring Tesco on 0800 505555.
