An even bigger mistake is gasoline into a DEF tank. A former co-worker managed this, somehow, at a station that has DEF at the pump. Pretty sure the gas nozzle is too large for the DEF filler neck on a Ram 4500, but that didn't stop this bonehead. He's the type that could never work long enough anywhere to pay down his damage claims.I am in Texas and the only colors I have noticed are Black or Red for Gasoline, Blue for E15, Yellow for E85 and Green for Diesel. That being said I was in a rush one day, not paying attention and a diesel nozzle will fit right into the unleaded filler hole on the 2011 Pathfinder. I caught my error before pumping anything. My mom on the other hand put a gallon or two of diesel into the same vehicle before she noticed her mistake. It burned the diesel/gas mixture and never caused an issue. I have seen both a Sierra and a Maxima pumped full of diesel.
The really expensive mistake is DEF into a Diesel tank. Seen it multiple times on Fords and Titans where both fillers are in the same fuel door.
