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?

Never put diesel in it, so I'm guessing I'm golden!

No. and especially not diesel for gas -- how can you miss the green nozzle & larger filler?

No, but you need to watch the pumps. Some stations get sneaky and reverse the order of the fuel grade buttons. Normally it is a left to right sequence of Regular, Mid and Premium. I have seen a few places where this order is reversed. If you don't catch it you might fill up with the expensive stuff.
