What is your question?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
We rented a car in Germany from autoeurope. The wrong gas was put into the tank by us. The engine stopped working. We got another car. Four months later we just got a bill for 7000 dollars from hertz.
Expert:  Loren replied 1 month ago.

If you signed a contract to cover any damage you caused to the car then you would be liable. Hertz may be willing to negotiate the amount claimed.

Did you have a defense to assert?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
We bought insurance at the counter. They gave us the wrong car too. I am not sure of the exact wording on the paper we signed. Can I get back to you?
Expert:  Loren replied 1 month ago.

Sure.

However, I am not sure that insurance would cover using the wrong gas, but you can make a claim and appeal if they deny coverage. You need to check the terms of the insurance coverage.
