An official limousine awaiting President Barack Obama's arrival in Israel broke down Wednesday. The Secret Service has indicated that the mechanical malfunction was because of the type of fuel used.

According to reports, the vehicle had been filled with gasoline instead of diesel fuel, which caused the engine to seize. Luckily, several identical limos are usually sent ahead of most presidential visits, and a quick swap was made. 

No word on whether or not  the fool-hardy driver kept his job.
