Warning to everyone. Stupidly without realising it I put £8 of unleaded petrol into my beloved car. DROVE IT....... Now have a whopping £9,700 bill from Mercedes. I called them out as I thought my car had broken down. Cue coronary and fainting spells :shock: :( :(
Irony of it is that I have never let any of my Doods in it in case they cause any damage!!!!!!!

Oh good lord :shock: Will the insurance cover it?

Oh well, at least you have your health, your doods and hopefully a gsoh :)

Sorry, trust trying to get a smile from you.

OUCH!!! :shock: :!: :!: :!: :!:
That seems like a hell of a lot...???? Have they got the decimal point in the wrong place??? I'd expect £900, not £9000!

Oh I can believe it... if you normally burn diesel. We don't have that model in diesel here (gas only), but driving a diesel Benz myself I know how fast the bills can get cranked up.

This shot yesterday afternoon when I arrived to see my engine spread all over the shop... two days of labour to repair a minor oil leak. Happily, this is warranty work for me, but I feel your pain nonetheless!

oh Nat did that except it was a full tank of petrol - she drove it about a mile then did a quick stop and it wouldn't start. Luckily I think in total it only cost about £300 for a drain and the engine wasn't damaged.

Your Merc is beautiful and I am very jealous but a 9K bill.

Wow - was that a new engine? My diesel car has a specially shaped filler so that you can't put petrol in. I've never tried to do it but it's hard enough to get the diesel nozzle in - it needs a wiggle. Such a simple idea but it seems to be effective.
