    Well, you might not have to worry about it, but you sure have to pay for it if you or your spouse have a mental brainfart.

    I have brain farts all the time BUT my wife NEVER drives our truck and NEVER fuels the truck either. Most of the time I fuel her car for her as I hate the smell of unleaded and we own a Hair Salon and I want her as clean and fresh smelling as possible for HER customers. I am a Landscaper so I always smell like fuel or mulch or just good old fashioned hard earned sweat and she likes it!

    Some places like New Jersey have laws against pumping your own fuel, or having guns, chewing too loudly, ect. I just watch the people and give them the death look for grabbing the petrol pump. BTW - Jersey blows.

    Petrol? Do people in NJ say petrol? I had to call it gasoline after leaving Australia, so people understood me.

    My dad did that the first time when he first purchased my truck back in 95. It slipped his mind because my model is a c1500. the mistake never happened again.

    I have put a couple gallons of gas in my diesel before and came close a few other times because it seems that it might be too much trouble for every gas station to use the same color handle for different types of fuel. Black Diesel Green Unleaded or whatever floats there boat just so everyone could use a standard of some sort. I get used to green at one station for diesel go to the next and its black at that that one. Im sure that plays a big role in the fill up mistakes.

    My wife gets stopped by guys all the time when she's putting diesel in my Bronco. They can't believe it's got a 6.2!

    I read recently that a diesel can run on 30% gas with no noise difference or performance difference. They've lost their minds in my opinion.

    Dad built and installed a 6.2 in a guys Suburban a while back. It came back about a month later with a busted crank and all of the wrist pins out of it. He couldn't figure out what happened. After it was fixed the guys wife asked if "putting gas in it" could've caused the problem!!!

    Maybe 30% in a newer computer controlled diesel. But you wont get the power you had, and still think starting would cause some major rattle and possibly blow a head gasekt in a short time.
    One of the bosses sons at work once put a little over a half a tank of gas in an otherwise empty tank on a 99 F 350 joke. (never told us) 3.5 miles later the bosses wifes calls me and says somethings wrong with the truck. She brings it back, truck smells hot and sounds funny. Says it lost all power and suddenly got noisy. I go to work on it the next day when i get to it, try and start it and i thought all hell broke lose. It started, barely, man did it crack and rattle, and when i figured out what happened ( opened fuel tank and smelled gas). Truck still idleing i tried to back it up onto some ramps, truck didint have the power to start backing up the ramps, even when i slowly floared the truck. Pulled tank and drained, flushed fuel lines, new fuel filter Almost 10,000 miles since and no other problems (knock on wood).
