Hi all i hope i could get some advice.
After a major loss of power and the emissions warning light coming on i have had a diagnostic on my 07 1.6 sxi astra.
Large motoring organisation have advised that it is due to contaminatefd fuel. I called the supermarket as i had filled up monday and within 10 miles this occured and they have basically said they have no other reports so they would not accept liability.
Nowthe engine has been looked into further and the issues are consistent with silicone damage and i am looking at a large repair bill before the CAT has been looked at.
Now i am having analysis results of the fuel returning Monday however the supermarket in question so far aren't budging.
I am unemployed and just cannot afford a bill of this size so here i think are my options?
1. Obtain the results which if they are confirmed then pursue the supermarket for the repairs(i have an appointment with CAB Tuesday in case).
2. Is it possible to claim on insurance in these instances?
3. Pay(not a clue how yet however will need a car for when i get a job) and then pursue the supermarket via small claims.
I appreciate your responses.
