Car Misfuelling Insurance

What does this policy cover?

ALA Misfuelling Insurance covers the cost of assistance if your vehicle has been filled with the wrong type of fuel.

Using the wrong type of fuel isn’t unusual, with up to 150,000 cases every year. Most commonly this happens where a diesel car is filled with petrol – it can be stressful, inconvenient and costly to rectify.

This product can be bought independently without the need for an ALA GAP Insurance policy.

Cover Features:

With ALA Misfuelling Insurance, if you misfuel we will:

  • Arrange and pay to have your fuel tank drained and cleaned
  • Take you (or someone permitted to drive your car) the vehicle and up to 6 passengers to a garage to carry out the work
  • Refuel the vehicle with up to £10.00 of the correct type of fuel

Additional features include:

  • Cover available for up to 12 months
