I saw the question about gazole vs diesel in France however I had a slightly different experience pretty recently and was wondering if you could help me.
We rented a car (Lexus RX) and were told that it takes diesel. Everything was fine while we used diesel supreme or something like that. However, we stopped at a tiny gas station which only had two SPs and gazole and were told the same as you're saying here - that gazole and diesel are the same thing.
Five minutes into driving our engine shut itself down and now the rental company is trying to charge us for misfuelling even though at the gas station we were specifically told that gazole works.
Any thoughts what could have been wrong?
I thought that it might have to do with the fact that the car is a hybrid, but would that make any difference if gazole and diesel are the exact same thing?
