Customer Question

I put diesel in a gas lawn mower
JA: I'll do all I can to help. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so we can help you best.
Customer: Well it's a brand new mower. I unknowingly put diesel in it thinking it was gas and I wouldn't start. I called a neighbor and he said it was diesel. We emptied it out.
JA: Anything else I can tell the Small Engine Technician before I connect you two?
Customer: No ma'am
JA: I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Small Engine Technician about your situation and connect you two.
