Re: Petrol in diesel contamination test
Posted to Technical Tips Forum on 1/5/2015

Something similar happened to a lady in this country , Alan - she pulled in to a full serve in Toronto , north of here , driving a Mercedes Benz , late model , she tells the kid to fill it up , he was new to the job , fills it with gasoline , she drives away , it ends up at the dealer , you know the rest .The dealer took the service station to court , they wound up paying for a new engine and a fuel system flush . It even had the words Diesel Fuel stamped on the cap .The new kid doesn't work there any more .
