Video: Diesel Pump Anxiety

Forget range anxiety. Whenever I pull into a gas station with a diesel-powered car, I cringe and wait for the inevitable admonishment: "Wait! That pump is diesel!" exclaims the gas station attendant over the intercom. Imagine his surprise when I explain that I'm in the right place with my Chevrolet Cruze, Volkswagen Jetta or Audi A8.

Apparently Audi has also picked up on this trend, and has taken it to hilarious heights in a new ad. Watch the video above.

This has never happened

I picked up on something the very first time I saw this ad... namely, the "hey lady!" part. I thought it was pretty telling that they chose a woman as the vehicle's owner.
I'm male, and I've never owned or filled a diesel car before, but I suspect that being female is MUCH more likely to garner comments from attendants and bystanders.

Perhaps a diesel vehicle gender-bias social experiment is in order for Cars.com staff?

I've always associated Audi's with diesels so I find this ad a little odd. Would have worked much better as a Cruze ad.

Well, the first time I had a major attack they put me on xanax but it messed with my head really badly and I had memory issues. My discharge papers noted that while medicated by it I had little to no acknowledgement of externally inflicted bodily harm/pain. What I do remember is waking up the next day with a swollen ankle and multiple bruises that hurry like hell from walking into things or just letting the car door close on me.
Later, someone recommended me this treatment, and I’m very grateful with it, i can go anywhere i want without problem, no anxiety, no panic attacks, i'm a new person. Read this article, it helped me a lot : panicsolutionkey.com
