    Love this commercial every time I see it.

    Was sure this thread was going to be about buying a Miata though.

    It actually happened to me the first time I went to fill-up my new diesel.There was a homeless double amputee guy wandering around the station.Once i started filling up he came rushing to me to warn me I was filling diesel.I am sure he didnt see that commercial ever.I gave him $20 to buy a good diner.

    Happens to me almost every time I fill up my Passat.

    Drove it from San Diego to Fontana this weekend for a Chump Car race. Used $20 in fuel. 250 miles at 51 MPG

    Reminds me of a funny old story. In about 1991, I bought my (now ex-) wife a Volvo 940 Turbo wagon. The car required premium (then 92 octane) gas. One day she drove into a self-serve gas station, and some bozo, who was either trying to be a nice guy, or maybe trying to hit on her, insisted on pumping the gas into her car. When he got done, she realized that he put a full tank of 87 octane into her turbo-charged car. Nooooo, you phuckin' idiot . . .

    Another old story this thread reminds me of. Long time ago, like about 1983, I had a girlfriend who owned an Audi 5000 sedan. She went to a mechanic's shop to get a tune-up. I assume that he thought she was an idiot because she was a young, attractive woman.

    The mechanic asked her if the car had a 4, 6 or 8 cylinder engine, to determine the price of the tune-up. She told him it had a 5-cylinder engine. He looked at her with a straight face that and insisted there was no such thing as a 5-cylinder engine . . . lol
