ER Shell Vpower, filled her up ono it yesterday.. and never left the forcourt in my 2.2 ex
Arrh!!! Doh! sorry to hear that you made that mistake!.Yea Thought id treat her to some shell vpower diesel turned out to be petrol.. filled her right up and even shook the nozzel for all the last drips duh..
Bloody hell. Not good mate, sorry to hear thisyes started her up sounded so sweet at the push of the button, drove to the onsite hand carwash, and then the dreaded situation that she missed a heartbeat, followed by the lumpy tickover that came to the ultimate crescendo.. and died i glanced at my fuel recipet of 43L of petrol..
Sorry to hear that. It will cost quite a bit of money then. Shame I really do feel for you. I hope I never make the same mistake. At least like you say the garage was trying to be as helpful as possible but it ain't cheap to solve. You see as well you have just proved the point I made about the pumps not being labeled the same or not matching up like they used to. So did the garage have the pumps labeled up wrong as well. Arrrhhh!!Anyway enough of that. What next for your pride and joy? do you need to drain the system and clean the fuel lines etc..? or will you just get away with emptying the tank? Without being funny at least you are ok. I hope because mistakes can be made easily (Hope you know what I am trying to say). :wink:
yes the pump had the red handle...
the garage was very helpfull and supplied a telephone # for £140 i could have the petrol removed £60 petrol + £140 + £ 60 diesel expensive fillup
Don't think they were labelled incorrectlySo did the garage have the pumps labeled up wrong as well. Arrrhhh!!
In The end i phoned my dad, because that what dads are therfore to help...That's not a bad idea for getting some money back!
It was red, the first time i had used the stuff my mistake.Oh Man!!! - sorry to here this and hope it's sorted - without any lasting damage to your motor - soon.
Don't think they were labelled incorrectly
Diesel - black - always black even for V-Power Diesel
V-Power petrol is red
Normal unleaded is green
If they are labelled and coloured incorrectly there maybe a case against the filling station
