    Angry Stay in SCHOOL!!!

    So tonight I went to one of the local gas stations to fill up with "diesel"
    So the moron starts to fill the truck and as i was sitting there I could really smell gasoline. HMMM What the $%&@ I look and see what is going on,... the retard was filling me with gasoline, then he tried to make me feel like it was my fault. Needless to say he might be looking for a new job now that he had to phone his boss and tell him what he had done again. Yes I said again because as he was talking on the phone to his boss he said " I made another diesel mistake." The truck is now sitting at the GM dealer ship after being towed there. Guess we will see how I make out tomorrow AM.

    That happened to me in Costa Rica, the gas attendent put about 20 liters of gas in then said "no problem, I'll continue with diesel", I made him drain the tank. He put a hose in, then a rag around a compressed air hose into the filler tube and blew it all out.

    just an update the truck is still waiting for the tank to get drained. Talked to the manager and gave him the tow bill of $105. He phoned up to the gm dealership and only gave them the ok to drop the tank and put $5 worth of fuel in the tank. Works out to be about 3 litres of fuel. So I had to call the manager back told him how things are going to work. He is now going to put $20 in now. I'm to the point now that i just want the truck back. Good thing I never had to work today cause the also think the truck might not be done till after the long weekend.(Canada Day)

    Boy that sucks. But i got to work this am to find out someone did that just that to a 99 powerjoke. Bigger problem, had driven 3.5 miles, truck started to run like shit and smelled really really hot, i was told by the driver, So they drove the 3.5 miles back home. Not knowing this i fired it up and it sounded like it was gonna blow apart. Never heard an engine so loud in my life. Afetr dropping and flushing tank, and fuel system, and new fuel filter its running correctly again. Only thing now i have a leak from someplace around the back of the fuel filter housing. So that is tomarrows project.

    That's good to know that they will run on gasoline, just make it a 2 stroke mix to lubricate the injector pump. An accepted winterizing fuel is adding 5% gasoline.

    Default blew an engine this way

    back in January '01 got a tank full of gas , took of down the highway about 5 or 6 miles then pulled over . Realized something was wrong (lots of white smoke) .Towed to dealer ,they flushed the tank and whatever else was necessary, they started the engine and it seized less than ten seconds later
    right there in the service bay. Three weeks later I got my truck back.
    My brother in law works at this dealership and told me that when they took my engine apart the connecting rod bearings had been flattened. The gas stations insurance paid this repair (16,000 Canadian dollars, 10,500 alone for the engine).I found out later that the tanker truck driver had filled the underground diesel tanks with gas.

    Truck had 40,000 kms on the odometer when this happened
