DJ’s costly mistake

09 September, 2014

Radio 2 DJ Chris Evans was late for his breakfast show last week after putting diesel instead of petrol in his car.

According to the Daily Express, Evans was filling up on his way to work. He only realised the mistake when there were ‘huge flashes from the bonnet and huge plumes of smoke’.

After realising his mistake, Evans called a cab to drive him to the Radio 2 offices. The newspaper report did not state which of Evans’ many cars he was driving at the time.

It’s estimated that as many as 150,000 drivers put the wrong fuel in their car each year.
