    Default tescos diesel

    Any one had any problems with thier car or van after filling up at Tescos wick in the last two wks? My mate filled up and his car only done 6miles before konking out. A machanic drained the fuel tank and said the Deisel smelled like paraffin. just wondered if any one else has suffered the same?

    Was your Moggy 1000 converted to use unleaded?

    I am a stubborn sod and after six months of complaining about the Tesco tyre pumper upper not working, I now get my fuel elsewhere.

    Get through around 150-200 litres of Tesco diesel every week, have done for the past 2 years. Never had a problem with our cars.
