I used by husband's truck today; drove about 1 mile when I realized, in absolute horror, that I had just pumped unleaded gasoline into his truck. I pulled over, had the truck towed, etc...no word yet from mechanic. Has anyone had similar occurance? I did not drive over 35-40 miles per hour; is it likely that severe damage was done?

You should be ok...how empty was the tank when you filled it up? Seeing that you made it for a short distance and shut it down before it started making a lot of noises or died on it's own I don't think there would be much damage. Although, it depends on how much gasoline was mixed in and how much diesel was left in the tank.

gas tank was on "E"; low fuel indicator was on when I fueled up; there was no knocking or smoking, but I do think truck was about to stall; truck just didn't seem to be running properly
