    get adapted to vs get used to

    " I got used to wearing these slim fit jeans."

    OR

    "I got adopted to wearing these slim fit jeans"


    Guess you would not use the second sentence in this contex?

    But I might say "get my car adopted to disel fuel"?

    OR

    "I got adopted to the current circumstances."

    No, "adapted" is the word you want. Your second sentence is not very good or natural English, you could say "I adapted to the current circumstances".

    So I should use ''got used to" in the secon sentence,right? The fist one is good?

    You could use "got used to". "I got/had my car adapted to diesel fuel" is a correct sentence. I'm not sure it's possible to do though.
