Oh dear...  

A trail of motorists have been left stranded today after allegedly filling up their cars from a diesel tank containing water at a Tesco petrol station in Bristol in the UK.

Videos shared on social media show several broken down cars and vans on the forecourt, on a nearby roundabout, and on the road from the Tesco to the nearby M23.  Witnesses initially believed the diesel and petrol pumps had been mixed up before a Tesco spokesman revealed the issue was actually water being found in a faulty pump. 

One bemused motorist warned locals:

"Don’t fill up from Tesco in Eastville. They have mixed up petrol with diesel at the pump. They’ve put the wrong fuel in the pumps.
