Today we live in a society of "Zero Tolerance". The trend is to terminate whoever makes any mistakes. The truth is, however, that we all make mistakes, especially when starting a new job as you state is likely with this guy. I've made mistakes. That's right. Don't laugh. It's happened on very rare occasions. I fix the problem, make it right and move on. The company made the mistake good it sounds, by even giving you an extra 50 gallons. What recourse would you suggest? BTW, the summer blend should burn through. Are your glow plugs working? Even when we factor that so many workers don't care, the rest of us are still not beyond mistakes. We do our best, and when we fall short, the best we can do is make it right, which it sounds like they did.

That aside, I also realize that this board is as good a place to vent of some frustration before taking a chain fed machine gun to the fuel company and dealing old school with them as any place else. Don't get me wrong. I do it to. I've come on here and let my frustration with someone or something type itself before I hit the post icon. A few weeks ago I was angry, or such that Lowes didn't tell me up front that they didn't carry the chain for my very expensive chainsaw before I spent $400 on the biggest saw they had that day. Like you, I was just venting, so I suppose I shouldn't get hyper critical when someone else does. Good luck with your skidsteer. Perhaps you can park it overnight in the shop. Like I and the guy right before me said, it should still burn in the skidsteer.
