The Beast in Isreal...Presidential Limo broke down
 
Fox News reporting the Presidential Limo was fueled with diesel rendering it out of service. Report disputed by Secret Service. "Diagnostics ongoing"...

Great shot of it on a wrecker. Wish I had captured it.

Local news has the opposite: Gasoline in a Diesel: If that's true I bet it went Kaboom!!! :applause: :applause:

I can't see the Beast being Diesel ?

It's on a truck chassis, not that far fetched...

If it is true, someone is in a pile of poo poo,mistakes like that do not occur,especially since he is in a very volitail area,and his security must be having nightmares,

I'm a little surprised they'd use local fuel in a Presidential vehicle.OK,it probably has the fuel economy rating of an M1A2 Abrams tank,but you'd think the transport plane that carries The Beast and the backups would also carry some Beast-specific fuel.This isn't the first overseas vehicle fail for POTUS.:rolleyes:

Seems to be incompetence on the level of the Jimmy Carter White House...
