Sounds like she drove up to the wrong pump. Diesel and Gasoline pump nozzles are different diameter so you don't put in the wrong fuel.

Tom is correct - for many years stations have had different nozzles for gas and diesel. This safety feature prevented your wife from accidentally making a very costly mistake.
