    Eek Yanky Tank puts wrong fuel in Veccy!!!

    I pulled into Charnock Richard Services today to get a paper and a sarnie and whilst I was in their a nice looking 57 plate black xp veccy pulls up behind. It even had the blacked out headlamps!

    Anyway goes in does me shopping and goes back to my car, anyway the guys looking at me and then says ' hey man what fuel goes in here'?

    What engine is it I asked and he said 'dont know', so looked at the back at it was a diesel.

    He then told me had put £2.50 of unleaded petrol in, just fill it full of diesel and you should be ok.

    He said our diesel's are so quite compared to the USA.
