Here's one for the books. We flip all of our fleet of trucks annually for our foremen and this year we went with 2020 Ford F-250 diesels that we just took delivery of them in March. One of our foremen needed to add DEF to his and accidentally put 2.5 gallons of DEF in the fuel tank. He drove it about 200 yards before it shutdown as the fuel gel'd up. Had to have it towed off site to the dealership to have it looked at and the bill came out to $8040 to drop the tank, replace all lines, pumps, etc. The truck had only 4200+- miles on it and the foreman confessed he just F'd up and put it in the wrong filler which is clearly marked with blue or green filler caps. The only saving grace to his story was that he was working the late shift of a 72 hour factory shutdown and did this at 3:30 am. :rolleyes:
OUCH!

I will see your foreman ruining a fuel system and raise you an employee driving an International 10 wheeler with engine issues and warning lights 19 miles back to the home base because he didn't want to pay $400 to have it towed........$28K Cummins bill. That is all I have on the story so far but I am sure I will hear more.

Found out he was adding coolant to it for a week and not telling anyone. He couldn’t figure out why there wasn’t a leak under it so he just added a little each morning.

The next thing out of his pie hole is going to be "that's not my job, I don't get paid to do that" :LOL:
