got our Digi-T today (hoorah) drove to petrol station (400m)and filled up.The Mrs Loftythen takes me to work (5 minutes away). I jokingly said to her "it was diesel wasn't it", "aaaaaaaaaaargh" she cried before I said I was just joking. Then the little thing started jerking on acceleration , "stick it in warp factor mode" I said - that didn't work. 500m later it sounded likea clown's circus car and then we just got it off the road and it stalled we restarted and stalled and restarted and stalled etc. I had to show her the receipt from the garage to prove it was unleaded and not diesel that I put in.
We rang the garage and the suity man drove out with an overally man who lifted the bonnet and diagnosed a loose hose into the air filter - ooooops!!!
Some "PDI check that was" I said "yes" overally man said " I'd better ring all the people who were checked by the chap who did your car" .
We did not classify him as a chap , more like another four letter word beginning with c; laugh I nearly wept.
Happy now - it's a very comfy car to drive especially with all my dodgy injured bits - it's got a nice upright postion and I like the cut of it's jib.

I'm going from a diesel Lexus to a DIG-T...hope I don't put the wrong juice in...although I think you can put diesel in a petrol, but don't think you can do it the other way round as the nozzle's smaller isn't it? Anyway glad it was something simple and I hope to God I don't have someone I'll be "c"eeing next Tuesday doing the PDI on mine when I pick it up on Friday!

it's sleeping happily on the drive now - just waiting for a GT-R as company (it'll have to wait a bloody long time !)
