You will always remember the first time you had to pump gas outside of New Jersey. And now you will also remember the unfortunate experience of this Jersey Girl.
The other night I was browsing Instagram, and the gem of a page New Jersey Memes shared this User TikTok @nessybabyyy fill its tank for the first time. The results were unfortunate, but hilarious.

As you watch, keep these questions in mind. First, how did she not realize she was using diesel? The pump is clearly distinct from gasoline ones – and it’s so much more expensive! Second, when did she realize she had done something wrong? Was it when she first started pumping or did she notice something was wrong when she tried to turn on her car? And third, did the gas station charge him for the diesel?

If you were also wondering why an entire tow truck had to save it from this situation, JD Power says:
Since diesel fuel is thicker and denser than gasoline, the fuel pump will have a hard time moving the diesel / gasoline mixture through the system. In addition, diesel will not be able to pass easily through the fuel filter. Instead, it will clog the fuel filter. And no matter how much diesel then goes to the engine, the fuel injectors will be clogged, rendering them unusable.
It sounds awful. But don’t worry, @nessybabyyy. I’ve also had my share of embarrassing gas pumping moments. I was in Texas once and spent maybe 10 minutes trying to pump my gasoline until I asked for help from a man next to me (who was from New Jersey! ) was under the fuel pump when you removed the nozzle.
Do you have a mind-boggling horror story? I would like you to tell me about using the chat function on our WOBM 92.7 app!
