X2!!!!!! The color of the pump handle is NOT a good way to know you are pumping diesel. We have seen green, yellow, and black. Once we pumped 30 gallons of regular gasoline into the diesel truck. Very fortunately, DW noticed before we got back into the cab to try and drive away. The station said it happens frequently at their station, and handed us a business card of someone who knew how to remedy the situation. In less than 30 minutes, they arrived with a van, and inside the van was a food quality 55 gallon drum marked every 5 gallons, and an electric pump and hose. They fed the hose down the filler pipe and sucked out all 38 gallons that was in the tank. We dumped 5 fresh gallons of diesel in from a container and drove to the diesel pump, filled up, and drove on. They charged about $50 and kept the fuel which they planned to separate and use. They also brought two bottles of Motocraft diesel fuel conditioner. We used one full bottle on the first fill, and half the next bottle on the next two fillings. Truck never missed a beat, and has 98,000 miles on it now. Needless to say, this was an expensive refueling stop.
