They'd stopped after inserting petrol in their new Mercedes E-Class, and the car was close to half an hour's drive away. I arrived at their position and smiled to myself while I listened to the wife telling her spouse off for actually being so confused. "Precisely how could you actually manage to fill the car up using the wrong fuel?" she demanded of him. I wanted to clarify that this goes on frequently in Shropshire and that it's truly nothing at all to be concerned about, but he in spite of everything got his ear bent by his missus. Unlucky chap. Anyhow, I removed all of the contaminated fuel, gave the fuel system a flush and gave them some proper fuel.
