A few years back, I was at a petrol station in the UK, just off the M1 motorway. Starting pumping fuel in there, and this guy on the other pump is just staring at me starts to frown and then goes "are you sure your Mini (classic cooper, not that plastic BWM rubbish), takes Diesel?"
Next hour is spent trudging around desolate countryside next to the services, looking for some hosepipe. Somehow find a garden shed and "liberate" 4 foot of hosepipe to suck out the fuel.
Diesel does not taste good by the way. Oh, and neither does paying for nearly a full tank of Diesel, and then again a full tank of petrol.
And yes, EVERYONE at that patrol station found it highly amusing (except me).
