    • Small attachment to an iPhone that cost £288.00.   I know anything that relates to Apple can be very expensive, but what was the attachment ?   Did you return the attachment product in its original packaging ?   How often do you buy products from Amazon ?   How often do you return products to Amazon ?   Could Amazon believe you are buying products to simply try out for a period, with no intention of keeping the products ?
    • So I make a post and ask you some questions and you then go in and make a response which deals with something completely different and which ignores the questions which I have asked completely. I don't see how we can move forward on that basis
    • Thank you. First of all, this is not chronology so we don't have any sense of the timeline. It's still rather complicated – but maybe when you produce a chronology it will come more into focus. However, there are a few things that we can start to tease out. You say that you accepted £250 in an offer which was intended to reflect distress. Although you say that you accepted this offer mistakenly, it may well be that you have no further rights on this issue because of course it would have been up to you to understand the situation properly before accepting any kind of financial offer. However, it would be useful to understand the reach of this offer and so please could you post up the offer letter by uploading it in PDF format. You say that "high-volume messaging" is not explicitly covered in the terms and conditions – but there may be references to "fair use policy" and it may be an interpretive problem rather than looking for words which specifically match your situation. So it will be helpful to know what words Vodafone were relying upon and also what was the extent of your high-volume messaging. Did they give you any warnings. You say that they referred to terms and conditions which you did not sign. However, it isn't necessary to sign terms and conditions. We would have to understand more about the context – but generally speaking if there is an agreement which refers to terms and conditions from the outset and you then embark upon the agreement and use the services, then all the signs would be that you've accepted the conditions of use. Signed written terms and conditions are generally speaking only required in contracts for property or copyright or shares. You say that the contract was put in your sole name despite the fact that the company name was on the agreement. We don't have a chronology so we don't see how long this went on for and you don't explain why you didn't raise any objections to this – or maybe you did? You say that you have sent Vodafone and Lowell an SAR but "so far" you are waiting for a response. This suggests that you sent the SAR some time ago – but you haven't told us anything about when this might have happened. You are referring to obligations under the Consumer Rights Act but I'm afraid that these obligations refer to contracts between a trader and a consumer – and you are not trading as a consumer so these probably wouldn't apply to you. Finally, you are worried about expressing a claim in legal language. If you begin a small claim then you certainly don't need any legal language – and in fact that kind of approach simply gets in the way. Also, it seems to me that you are gearing up to bring a court claim – which is fine, in my book – but you haven't identified your cause or causes of action and you don't have a plan. I think we need to slow down and have a more careful and methodical look at the situation. Otherwise you're simply going to find yourself in trouble
    • Late to this, sorry - my wife claims contributory ESA and got her P60 about two weeks ago. Now I know she's overpaid on her tax and I'm just waiting for HMRC (the department I currently work for) to figure it out. They owe her about £150.

My wife has a 2010 Diesel Outlander.


She was very low on fuel, and brimmed it with petrol.


She then drove just shy of a mile before it splutted and came to a stop with her instant realisation of her mistake.


Quick call to the insurance company and they picked up the car and took it to a Lookers garage.


Lookers had it for 3 days, on the 3rd day drained the tank (via the engine bay) and replaced the fuel filter. They said the car was now all sorted, they added some fuel and some additive to the fuel to ensure smooth running.


I picked it up and paid the insurance excess.


That was around 60 miles ago - the tank was showing half full when the handed it back, and we drove on this without topping up.


The car MPG has dropped about 25%, it's knocking slightly and the engine management light has come on, and it smells of petrol fumes.


We phoned the insurance company, who have been excellent, and said they would transport the car directly to the garage to have it repaired.


They said if it turns out to be non-fuel related, they will cover the cost of transportation, but if it is related to the misfuel, the garage would have to pay for the transportation as they let the car go before it was fixed.


The garage have just phoned and said:


4 error messages

Fuel Filter Exchange - probably fuel related, they are going to brim it full of diesel and drive it for 40 miles (me paying for the diesel) they said there might be a small amount of petrol still in the system

Speed Sensor - not fuel related apparently although no problems before the misfuel

Air Flow Low - problem with the air flow meter (which they had to remove to get to the fuel filter) but not excepting any responsibility as not fuel related.

And cant remember the 4th


Other issues they have now noticed they hadn't before:

Leaking injector - Saying isn't fuel related.... not sure how it's not.

Exhaust slight blow - understand this isn't fuel related, but had an exhaust check only last month


I don't know what parts are misfuel related, and which aren't if I am honest.


I would assume the injector(s) now leaking are part of a claim, but they say they are not.


I am awaiting the results of tank of diesel going in and a 40 miles drive that should be happening now - however not sure how to proceed with the injectors and other issues that I believe could be fuel related.... would it be to get an experts opinion?

Just spoken to them again, the 4th thing on the list was the ambient air sensor.


They have filled it with diesel, driven it 40 miles, all fault codes now clear and driving as it should apparently.


They say the injectors look like they have been leaking for about a month, so not related to the misfuel - I have told them I will get a second opinion on this.

I had a Audi A4 1.9 TDI which I filled with petrol, it went about 30 miles before it lit up like a chistmas tree and died, it was taken to the main stealer and they promptly emptied my wallet of £800...... You are lucky you have insurance :)


If the injector had been leaking you will get carbon build up around it.

Pleased you have managed to resolve this robj1..will update your thread title.


Tip....I understand you can buy an insert which makes it impossible to put a petrol nozzle into a diesel car:wink:



We could do with some help from you.
