If it is a problem due to fuel,then as long as you have a receipt for the fuel and a reciept for the repair you should be able to claim the money back.

Thanks for that I filled up at a shell petrol station on the 23rd of Feb.and still have the receipt. Just have to find out if that petrol station had some of the dodgy fuel delivered.
