    Oh Mike, I am so, so sorry to read about your sister. That must have been a dreadful shock for you, and then to top it all the wrong fuel: that is very easily done and given the level of stress you must be under it is no wonder it happened. I wish you well, take as much time as you need but rest assured, I (and a few others) will be thinking of you. DD

    I'm so sorry to hear about your sister's death, Mike. You had a dreadful shock, so your mind was probably on other things when you put petrol in the car by mistake.

    Hi Mike,
    I am so sorry to hear the sad news about your sister. What a terrible shock for you all.

    I hope because you have not driven the car they will be able to drain the tank and flush the petrol out for you.

    The very sad news about your sister I am truly sorry for you, can't imagine the grief.

    As for diesel in the car, I did it last month to my husbands company car that was only three months old petrol in a diesel, knew not to start it but cost about £100 plus fuel wasted. My husband took it very well guess he used to living with a wife who makes daft mistakes!! X
