Driver raises fuel quality concerns
A DRIVER is concerned a bad batch of diesel has been sold around Colchester.
Andy Jones had the fuel filter replaced on his Ford Mondeo during a routine MoT, but was shocked to find several other cars of different makes and models were being repaired for the same fault at his garage.
Mr Jones, of Ford Street, Aldham, said: "It was the third breakdown this year and I do a lot of miles so it was not a nice feeling. But when they said it was the fuel filter and could be a bad batch of fuel I am now hoping it is."
Mr Jones said he could recall which petrol stations he had used but did not want to name them without further evidence.
