    I always thought the nozzles in the petrol pumps couldn't be inserted into a diesel car as they're a bigger size.

    Phone those lovely women who are not married ,who come out and drain your fuel tank .
    They are called Miss- fuel
    As RBH says the nozzles are different sizes so should not fit the hole
    But I know I'm guilty of trying to put things in the wrong hole .
    But what ever you do -
    Don't believe the hype
    Don't stop believing
    Don't believe anyone who says the cheque is in the post

    It's the other around, diesel nozzle doesn't fit in a petrol car as it's larger.
