A CARELESS driver has accidentally bought the more expensive type of petrol.
Mother-of-two Susan Traherne inadvertently filled her car with ‘super unleaded’ because petrol pump designers have made that quite easy to do.
She said: “Clearly, given the choice between two types of fuel that would both make my car go, I wanted the cheaper one. Not ‘Mega Nitro Power Plus Bullshit Petrol’.
“But when you’re in a hurry sometimes you do really stupid things.
“It’s worst than putting in diesel by mistake because at least that’s pure stupidity rather than being manipulated by corporate cunning. I’ll be pissed off about this for at least three days.”
Recent data shows that no driver has ever bought super unleaded on purpose.
However garage owner Nathan Muir said: “Super unleaded is great, it makes your car go fast like a racing car.
“And for men, it can add two inches to your penis if you drink it.”
