Anyone read the Darwin awards -- one of them was for a doof that was trying to steal gas by siphoning it out of an RV and got the sewage tank by mistake.
I remember that one - it made me chuckle out loud

I think the car will be fine though - they'll remove the gas tank and fill it up with regular gas

Funny thing though is a Diesel will run (not well it knocks like crazy) on conventional Gasoline

Sucks to be in that situation though, Good luck to the guy, and Nice of you to be turn around for him

Should have asked for her number after helping her out
