VW is offering certain customers a friendly and potentially cost saving reminder.
Volkswagen is replacing the fuel tank covers on more than 200,000 of its diesel vehicles sold in the U.S. and Canada.
Dealers will put on a new fuel cap with yellow "diesel" lettering for free.
The move is designed to remind owners to fill their tanks with diesel and not gasoline, which could damage the engine.
This comes after the company received reports of many drivers filling up with the wrong thing.
