    Default What a start for a new driver...

    Was in my local BP filling up today when this really upset girl comes running over to me. Apparently she had just passed her license and had got permission to take Daddys car for a drive. (First time out in it alone too.) She thought she would be good and fill it up for him before returning home.

    I looked over and saw a lovely, black late model BMW. I asked what the problem was, and she replied she had just filled it up with £30 worth of diesel. Apparently she didn't look at which pump she picked up, and should have put petrol in... Whoops what a way to start your driving experience and impress your father at the same time.

    Not quite sure what she wanted me to do about it either. If it was a little bit of diesel I would have recommedned she top it up with petrol and hope that flushes it all through. Not sure if that would work with a top of the range Beemer tho. As it was, I left her on her mobile in tears, trying to explain all this to her father...

    Ooops! Happens all the ferkin time. This young woman had her boyfriends Audi A4 she put a fiver of petrol in it, but it was a diesel. Told her to fill it right up with diesel and it'd be fine. But nooo she doesn't want my advice cos that would cost about fifty quid, she puts just a fiver of diesel in, goes off and breaks down at the busy roundabout outside, then comes in literally crying to us wanting a fix! Didn't wanna be mean, but really! Told u so...
    Guess what idiot here had to go and push it off the road in the lashing rain

    So then she waits about 2 hours and the Audi technician guy comes out and what does he do, takes it round again, and fills the tank with diesel, bet she wishes she'd just taken my advice lol

    Although I've never tried it, I'm pretty sure you can't get a diesel nozzle into a petrol car due to the size of the nozzle.

    Although that does mean that you can put petrol into a diesel.

    I was born in Christchurch but lived in Waikari. Unfortunately (!!), have spent 97% of my life over in the UK. However, I still retain my NZ citizenship and am currently looking to move back in the next 5-10 years. So although a kiwi, I'm probably more english than NZ
