The misfuelling prevention device

One for the road prompts motorist memory lapse

Munich is home to the world-famous Oktoberfest beer festival during, as the name suggests, the month of October.  A motorist in Munich went out for a few beers and could not find his car when he returned from his revelries. He reported the motor as missing to police in Munich and almost two years later it was returned to him after a traffic warden found it parked up around 4km from where the driver had thought he had left it.

His misadventure took place in December rather than October, so maybe that would have been a Decemberfest or Decemberfiesta? Either way, the police thought he had been a little fuellish.
