    Yeah, we had a genius do that at my station recently. I guess the diesel stickers everywhere aren't visible enough. Lol.

    I wonder if people get written up for that lol I would assume the amount of :censored2: you get from your fellow employees would be enough

    We've been told that any tows for a reason not directly caused by vehicle malfunction will be charged to the employee as an accident/incident.

    The word diesel has 6 letters in it. For some people whose intellect is limited to four letter words the word diesel is a word that is too big.

    Did he use a funnel? The hose shouldn't even fit in the def tank.

    It was a she and the DEF tank on those new Isuzu trucks is basically a jerry can with a 3" opening.

    DEF= Diesel Exhaust Fluid. The old Grummans will be phased out as all new Diesels are DEF equipped.

    Know a guy who put DEF fluid in the motor of a sprinter. Mixed it in to the oil. $13k screw up.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    Our recently retired mall driver ran out of fuel (twice) on road.

    There are at least 3 gas stations that have diesel on his area.

    I had a driver put gas in a diesel sprinter. Luckily he caught the mistake before driving far. went out, pumped into 5 gallon containers, dumped in some injector cleaner, filled with diesel and after 20 minutes of driving, all was fine.
