An Auckland woman who tried to take petrol from a North Shore service station did not get very far.
The 27-year-old pulled up to a Birkenhead BP just after 1pm yesterday, thinking she was filling her car with petrol, but in fact it was diesel.
North Shore police say the woman tried to speed away, but only made it 100 metres down the road before the engine seized. She will appear in court on Monday charged with theft.
