Re: Diesel Engines and Supermarket Fuel

Funny I should come across this and how they try to blame anything..

My Mums partner owns a 2011 Renault Scenic 1.5DCi.

Its only done 14k as its just used mainly for shopping etc and that as only EVER had Shell fuel put in it as that fuel station is just down the road from them...

Yesterday while going to visit his Brother it started to cough and then came to an halt. RAC man came out and connected it up to a diagnostic and it came back as injectors

Renault today have confirmed that it does need a couple of injectors, and at 14k too

I was always led to believe that supermarket fuel cam from the same refinery as Shell etc anyway??
