i had quite a weekend....saturday a girlfriend and i headed out for a road trip to go shopping....we made a little pit stop for gas about half way to our destination.  it was an unusually difficult process pumping gas....i was in the middle aisle of the gas station, everything was touch screen...it said select fuel, there was one button so i pressed it.  it took forever to pump so i only got a quarter of a tank. well, we got back on the road and immediately my car started acting funny.....like we were dragging someone.  we pulled off the interstate and examined the car...no one was under there (thankfully).  then, i confessed to my friend how difficult it was getting gas....well, to make a long story short- i pumped my car full of kerosene.  yes, apparently they now have it in the middle aisle of gas stations.  our girls trip, halted quickly as we headed very nervously to the closest toyota dealership 45 minutes down the road....they spent the next 6 hour removing it from my tank.  apparently it's not a good idea to use kerosene in your car.....it will put a huge damper on your shopping trip, your wallet, your husband won't be happy, and it will make you the butt of jokes for quite sometime!  just a little warning guys :)

Man what a bummer! I probably would have done the same thing, so don't feel too bad!

That's awful! I drive a diesel bug, and I'm always really nervous about using regular gasoline. Sometimes people will come up to me and make sure that they know I'm using diesel. Anyways, I hope they were able to fix it and I'm really sorry that it happened.

ohh noo! (I'm laughing a little) but really an honest mistake! Hope your car is okay~~ Seriously, who uses kerosene?? ;o)

Why oh why do we need kerosene at a gas pump? This, honestly, sounds like exactly something I would do. What a complete bummer! I bet they won't forget this story at the dealership either! Thanks for the laugh!
