Al Ain petrol station shuts after petrol vehicles filled with diesel

A petrol station in Al Ain was shut after vehicles were filled with diesel instead of petrol on Tuesday night.

ABU DHABI // A petrol station in Al Ain was shut after vehicles were filled with diesel instead of petrol on Tuesday night. The resevoir had been filled with the wrong fuel, reported the Arabic-language newspaper Al Ittihad, the sister paper of The National.

The Abu Dhabi National Oil Company offered drivers of the damaged vehicles car rentals at the company's expense until their vehicles can be repaired.

The company said that it was human error and the petrol station at Al Yaher has been temporarily closed.

Such mistakes are extremely rare, Adnoc said in a statement released on Wednesday.
