A mechanic has stepped in to save a couple’s engagement party after a blunder from the bride-to-be’s father.
Ross Davidson was working at a Sydney car garage when he got a call from a distraught Bianca Alchi.
The bride-to-be told him she had borrowed a ute that had accidentally been filled with the wrong petrol, Yahoo reported.
The vehicle had stopped running and Ms Alchi desperately needed it to pick up a few more decorations for her engagement party the next day.

As Ms Alchi explained, she had enlisted her father to help with the last minute preparations.
She had borrowed the ute and tasked him to pick up the remaining decorations.
‘I had to pick up the flowers from the markets and deliver some to the cake store, then we picked up heaters and decorations.’
But her father, who was unfamiliar with the ute, accidentally filled up the diesel engine vehicle with unleaded petrol and the vehicle stopped running.
That’s when Ms Alchi anxiously called up her local mechanic Mr Davidson to tell him what had happened.
Mr Davidson told her he thought it would take all day to fix the vehicle and that there was nothing he could do to speed up the process.
Moved by Ms Alchi’s distress, he then offered her a lifeline.
‘He said, “I don’t do this for anyone but you can borrow my ute,” and he lent [it] to us,’ Ms Alchi said.
‘He made sure we knew it was unleaded,’ she laughed.
His act of generosity did not go to waste, with Ms Alchi managing to finish preparing for the big day on time.
