How is this news?
 
2013-03-20 11:29:15 AM  
This will really add fuel to the fire.
 
2013-03-20 11:30:26 AM  
If Obama had already been inside when it broke down I imagine there would have been many LOLz amongst panicking security personnel.
 
2013-03-20 11:31:28 AM  
THANKS, OBAMA!
 
2013-03-20 11:31:48 AM  
Just wait; we'll see "Obama is such a snob he won't pump his own gas like Romney does" with the picture of Romney at a gas station a few days after losing the election and his SS detail.

This is Obama's 1970s Oil Crisis.

They filled it with gas, it takes diesel
 
2013-03-20 11:32:40 AM  
Did tardmitter read his own article?  The limo requires diesel, the agent filled it with regular unleaded.
 
2013-03-20 11:32:53 AM  
Headline and story disagree.. CNN says it should have been diesel.

FTFA: The official limousine awaiting President Barack Obama's arrival in Israel malfunctioned after its driver refueled it using gasoline rather than diesel fuel, an official said Wednesday.

How did they do that?

Diesel fuel nozzles won't fit in gasoline recepticals.  At least here in the states they won't.

I dunno, I think what is supposed to be the top level security force on the planet goofing in such a manner is worthy of news.
 
2013-03-20 11:34:19 AM  
So, the driver pumping the gas was a woman?

*ducks*
 
2013-03-20 11:34:37 AM  
So Biden is out of the country, Obama is out of the country and a fresh limo is being flown in.

My spider sense is tingling.
 
2013-03-20 11:35:12 AM  
how the hell do you fill with diesel.  Diesel spigots should be larger than gasoline, so that a diesel pump will not be placed into a gasoline car.  The opposite makes little sense, as gasoline will still combust when compressed.

I remember seeing a greatest race episode where idiots put diesel in a truck designed for gasoline.
 
2013-03-20 11:35:14 AM  
The regular SS fueler had to be replace with a scab due the Sequestration. This is the just the beginning...

It would not have been greenlit had the correct fact been stated

Fire that guy. He put a security risk on the prez, due to being a numbnut. He doesnt deserve his job.

/runs on diesel
 
2013-03-20 11:38:15 AM  
I'm surprised that thing doesn't run on diesel.  It's heavy as a tank.
 
2013-03-20 11:38:33 AM  
Just more propaganda for electric cars.

It runs on diesel. The SS tried to fill it up with petrol. Subby is a short-buser.
 
2013-03-20 11:40:24 AM  
I'm not sure which is worse.

Tardmitter or half the Tardcommenters

/owns a diesel VW
 
2013-03-20 11:40:29 AM  
From what I've seen, cars with Diesel in them are usually very fast.

tricycleracer: I'm surprised that thing doesn't run on diesel.  It's heavy as a tank.


It does. Several news outlets and subby are confused. So confused that they may not know what to put in their own car.
 
2013-03-20 11:41:22 AM  
They should have called Ethyl.
 
2013-03-20 11:41:23 AM  
This is a bad couple years for the SS. That guy's getting kicked of the Presidential detail.
 
2013-03-20 11:42:12 AM  
Hmmm I wonder who made the engine.  Surely they did not keep the Duramax POS from the suggested Kodiak.

An accurate headline as always here on Fark.
 
2013-03-20 11:43:16 AM  
So they don't bring a store of diesel with them? Enough for even a heavy car is nothing to the fleet of planes that would accompany AF1.

Or at least pre position the stuff.

They seem to be going the "discount route" for agents and their subsequent bad decision making lately.
 
2013-03-20 11:44:24 AM  
Now we are going to resort to bashing the Duramax?  You must be a cummings nutcase.
 
2013-03-20 11:45:24 AM  
It runs on a heavy duty truck platform and diesel power train.  As for the confusion over the nozzles, often times the Secret Service brings its own fuel, The Beast doesn't just pull into a gas station.  Someone might have drawn from the wrong fuel bladder, although I'm not sure why they'd have a gasoline one.  Maybe they filled it up with AvGas or whatever they brought along for the helicopter.

It's almost like the "hot chick" phenomenon of late. All submission titles are now suspect.

CSB time:

In 1999, Pres. Clinton visited Tucson, AZ.  I was a firefighter at Davis-Monthan AFB, which is where Air Force One would land.  Several days prior to arrival, the Presidential Limos and a bunch of other vehicles arrived via cargo plane, and were parked in the stalls where our trucks normally resided.  Hours before AF One arrived, I was approached by a Secret Service agent who requested a roll of Scotch tape.  He explained that the presidential seals attached to the doors of the limos were static clings like those often used on windows, and they were not sticking due to the dry conditions.  So, for several hours President Clinton drove around Tucson with my Scotch tape stuck to his limo.

Also, a minivan full of gregarious snipers borrowed some ladders to assist them in taking positions on rooftops surrounding the flightline.  "Hi!  We're the snipers!  Y'all got any ladders we can borrow?  We gotta get up on the roof!"

Was that the visit where the president stopped the limo so his doc could help an injured cop?

They fit poorly.  I put about a gallon of diesel in my sister's car before I figured it out.  Her car was OK.

I was gonna go the opposite angle and say that we need to get them MORE hookers and blow. In their off-time, of course.

It's a GMC Kodiak driveline and chassis.  It's a diesel.
