East Coast - Diesel & Gas Pumps Nozzles Confusing
CHERSTER, VIRGINIA -- I recently stopped at an East Coast station in Chester, Va for diesel. I have had this truck for over 4 years & I am perfectly capable of spotting pumps with diesel. This particular station has all of his unleaded pumps with green nozzles & on the last two pumps there are two nozzles....one green & one black. To my misfortune, I realized that the black nozzle was not diesel after I was stranded on I-95 several miles later. The tow truck driver was the one who figured out what had happened as soon as I told him how the check engine light came on, truck became sluggish then quit. He asked me if I had recently gotten fuel & told me to look at the receipt to see if I had pumped unleaded. He says this happens quite frequently & even happened to one of their tow truck drivers. His company alone gets several service calls a month for this same problem. Evidently complaints to the State of Virginia have not rectified this misleading situation.
