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, 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.

Just one time, and I actually didn't notice any difference in performance.

No, but one time a pump jockey put premium in my VW bug without asking me what I wanted. I was so mad I almost made him take it out and replace it with regular. ANYBODY knows that a bug doesn't need premium, and it was 34 cents/gal when regular was 28 cents/gal. :-)
