    Although I doubt brillo has, it never ceases to amaze me the number of people who misfuel their car. Potential Darwin winners if you ask me.
    No one would normally ask you. You can't even tell the difference between a parody thread and a normal one.

    Get a long straw, stick it up your bum, fart into the tank, and the gases reliably turn diesel into petrol, so I've been told.

    How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don't think

    I thought there was plans to alter the shape of the fuel nozzle so it will only fit that type of car?

    Actually a sensor would be better, anyone trying to put in the wrong fuel should trigger a loud alarm 'Stupid w4nker alerrrrrrrt'.

    I did this in my old mk2 Golf (petrol) 15 years ago I was in a hurry and the pumps were both black (not green/black for petrol/diesel) so like a div I stuck in diesel and off I went. After 10 mins it would judder and then conk out.

    Gave it 5-10 mins it would start up and run okay but 15 mins later same thing would happen. Did this a number of times before I realised what I had done!

    Added more petrol and it did conked out once more then ran sweet after that.
