    i had this problem when i had my megane!
    i was abit confused!
    then my car smoked like hell.. cos it was diesel in the pump!

    The shell delivery driver, put diesel in the Vpower tank and vice versa!


    lets just say there was alot of unhappy customers at that garage!

    Because diesel is a ******* of a liquid, and gets everywhere. Someone with a high vehicle fills up, turns round to put the pump back in the holder and diesel runs out of the nozzle everywhere. Usually over the petrol nozzle. Or they get it on their hands, then transfer it to the door handle if the shop.

    The diesel smell is one of the many things I don't miss about having a diesel car. Even with nitrile gloves you'd end up stinking of the stuff.

    Interesting. I'll wind my neighbour up with that. He delivers V Power around Liverpool and told me it can't be cross contaminated because of some fancy monitoring system Hoya use.
