Have you ever pumped the wrong grade of fuel into your car, or has the station pumped the wrong grade into the pump. Only to find out that the gas you were supposed to get was diesel or vise versa?

No, except when the recommendation was to use premium and I used regularly and never saw a problem with that car's engine at all.
