How can I ensure renters use the correct fuel for the vehicle?

When a renter pumps the incorrect fuel type into the vehicle, it can be an expensive claim and can sideline your RV until the repairs are made. This issue is most common with diesel vehicles.

What do I do if gasoline is pumped into my diesel vehicle?

Gasoline will damage the diesel engine and will need to be flushed from the system. This can be a costly repair and the RV will be unavailable during the repair process.  Avoid driving the RV, if possible, if this happens.
