Today I tried to put diesel in my Camry.

Wait.

Let me explain.

I usually get gas at a BP station near work, and all their pump handles are green. They have a dedicated pump for diesel separate from the gas pumps. The diesel pump handles are yellow.

So I notice on my way to work this morning that I have but a quarter tank left. And it's COLD out. My car is warm. I'm about to drive past a gas station, so why not fill up here so I can get back in my warm car, rather than drive my cold car to the station after work and get back in a cold car after standing in the cold.... yeah.

So the pump looks like the one way above. Three buttons for gas, one for diesel, and TWO nozzles. One I did not see since it's BLACK and mounted in a BLACK housing. I do see the green one, and grab that and press the "87" button. I swing it around and aim it for the hole in my filler neck. It doesn't go in. It DOES, however, spill a little bit of fluid onto the cup around the hold. WTF. I try to stick it in again. It won't go.... that's when I turn around and notice the light on the diesel button flashing.

FUCK.

I DUMB.

Hung up the GREEN DIESEL nozzle, and picked up the BLACK GAS nozzle and again pressed the "87" button.

Hey, it fit.
