The service station had to close.

At least seventeen vehicles were damaged and broke down after their drivers had filled them with diesel rather than petrol at a service station in Palma on Saturday.

One of the service station's tanks for petrol was filled with diesel by mistake. This wasn't noticed until drivers began reporting the problems. The service station had to be closed as a result, and management say that the supplier is responsible and that claims will need to be made to its insurer.

Whoever the motorist paid for the fuel i.e. the garage is responsible for any subsequent damage. They are simply trying to pass the buck

So,pay the garage for your fuel,they do no checks on what is delivered,so obviously will not sign for anything.Anybody could deliver to this garage and deliver whatever they want,not their problem if anything goes wrong. All the vehicle owners should have their vehicles delivered and put on the garage forecourt until they come to their senses and accept responsibility,at least that would stop this garage selling any more rubbish.

I wonder how long it will take to receive compensation? Will it cover all the costs of draining tanks and fuel systems?. What further damage may occur at a later stage to the cars engines?
