I agree.

I'd like to hear as Paul Harvey put it, "the rest of the story".

Wow!! What a shame. I can see one person putting the wrong fuel in, but there had to be separate drivers, did they both do the same thing?

I'd take one for a good deal, with no concerns. My '07 Dodge Cummins got a bad batch of fuel one fill up and blew up after 90 miles. Complete tank cleaning, new tank pump, new high pressure pump and new injectors. That was at 7K miles. Now have 130,000 with no problems.

Here's a picture of the 2 brothers that were driving those rigs.

I bought a new diesel ford super duty some years back and the prep guy filled it with gas. I drove about 200 feet from the dealership when the truck stalled.

They drained the tank, filter and fuel lines and filled it with diesel. Never had a problem after that with the engine.

Other than embarrassment and expense for the driver, the coach will probably be fine.

Are you close enough to the story to clarify "locked up"? Running gasoline in a diesel should run hot, but did they seize? Ignite? Melt anything?

Almost sounds like the makings of an urban legend.

OK Here's my story and I'm stickin to it...

Went up to Freightliner of Chattanooga this past Saturday to get some paperwork out of my coach. Unfortunately it was locked up in the body shop since it was not winterized and we could not get access. On the way back to the main building we drove by the two DutchStars and I commented how nice they were. The service writer laughed and made the comment that they were both there because the drivers had filled them with gas instead of diesel and then driven them till the engines locked up...his words not mine.

On Wednesday I went back to F of C to pick up my coach and I took a closer look at the two Dutchstars and it was obvious that they were both new units and in transit...draw your own conclusions
