Rock bottom of the motorhoming trip
If you think we’d been through enough in these few days, you're wrong. Because we are not there yet. Saturday, on the way from Le Tilleul (a small village near Étretat) to Bruges, I fuelled Diesel. But into the water tank! Now you might wonder: how? In the hustle and bustle of a busy gas station in an foreign country and as an inexperienced motorhome owner you do crazy things.
The man in front of us at the gas station also seemed to have some 'fuelling problems' which prevented him from fuelling right away, and, to be fair, the water tank cap really looks like a blue fuel cap and I didn't see an alternative place that looked like a valve or hole where the nozzle should go. "Well, then in the water tank!" I’m sure my actions will be talked about for a long time.
Now, I sound a bit jolly and laconic, but I was anything but when I found out what I had done. And I am still disappointed that this has happened to me. But then I think for a moment about a good friend of mine (sorry Dad! 😉) who once fuelled petrol into a diesel car: it can always be worse! Well, I know one thing for sure: that this will not happen to me again.
Wondering how you can solve this? In this video from our parent company it is explained step by step (only available in Dutch)
