Very quick question for you, we had an insured who recently bought a Mercedes sprinter van and it is a diesel, well you guessed it, they accidentally put gasoline in it during a recent trip. The vehicle had to be towed to a shop, fuel lines drained and prepped. He asked me if there would be coverage for this event and I advised, most likely yes for the towing and labor, but no on the damage or bills for the error of filling up with the wrong fuel. I do not see where that would be a covered cause of loss. Would you agree with this? Thanks in advance for the help!
