Petrol in a Diesel car!

Father stops at the gas station to fill up his Jeep. Some time ago, the Jeep that long ago used to be Mother's, that they sold to Elize and her husband, came back to Father when Elize and her husband sold it back to them again.

Petrol in a Diesel car!

"Diesel?", asks the pump attendant.

"Yes please; fill her up!" replies Father.

And the attendant fills up the Jeep.

Suddenly Father notices something.

"Is that Diesel you're putting in?"

The pump attendant grows cold with panic. Oh no!

He's been filling the car up with petrol!

What happened here? He specifically asked, and got a specific answer to fill the car up with Diesel.

They get the manager, and this pump attendant is in a panic. Because what happened here, is the same thing that happened yesterday! The pump attendant accidentally filled a diesel car up with petrol. Whichever way he became confused, has just transpired again because he just did the same thing.

Anyway, that is their worries. Fortunately Father has the sense not to start up the car, so the petrol doesn't get taken up in the system. But it is in the tank.

Fortunately there's a workshop in a part of this petrol station, and they have a tow truck to tow the car to the authorized Jeep repair shop.

There they undertake the big task of taking off the diesel tank and emptying all the petrol out of it. They also replaced the fuel filters and some pipes, which Father considered a bit overkill, but rather be safe than sorry.

And so, when Father finally came home, he has something to tell Mother and Marzeus, as they watch the sunset from the new West Wing patio.
