I'm not excessively inclined to running Sundays, and a week ago was no different. I'd just departed home following a tasty dinner prepared for me by the wife, and I was off to help a fellow because he filled the incorrect fuel in his new VW Tiguan. He was located in Stainforth hence I was there soon. Just as I drove up right behind the car and got busy draining he told me "Thank God! I foolishly had my mind on other stuff and failed to ascertain I had put the wrong fuel in my petrol car. Have I inflicted any kind of problems through starting it?" I revealed that generally there probably should not be problems and also that I would personally remove the contaminated fuel as soon as possible for him. As expected I got the fuel drained from the vehicle and filled up with some suitable fuel, and then one more content motorist was able to continue his ride without fuss. The gentleman could not stop saying thanks to me, and that is what makes working on Sundays in South Yorkshire that little bit less painful to me!
