Okay well I have learned a very important lesson this past week! I have morons for friends! A buddy of mine borrowed my car to run some errands while I was on duty, well, he decided to fill my gas tank up as a little thank you but the problem is that he stopped at the pump, and started to pump fuel. Then after about a half to one gallon of DIESEL was pumped into my car he realized it and stopped the pump and then proceed to fill the car up with Super unleaded which is what I run in it being in Germany and their fuel sucks anyways. My question is how horrible is it to leave it or should I just drain the gas tank and fill it up with Super unleaded again? I haven't drove it since the incident, I have only started it and let it run for a while and everything runs fine, I just get a little smoke for about thirty seconds after I start it but it stops and doesn't smoke anymore at all. The car still seems to run fine while in Park, but I haven't driven it though. Any thoughts, should I kill my friend or is this a little harmless mistake. Thanks :confused:

It won't really hurt anything, but you might wanna add some fuel system / injector cleaner. Perhaps an octane boost even. Or just keep it topped off as you drive. It's not too big a deal. It's MUCH worse to put gas in a diesel engine than the other way around.

1/2 to 1 gallon shouldn't cause any problems... It'll be quite diluted with the other 17 or so gallons of gas.

ex girlfriend filled her dad's dodge V-10 dually with diesel. Said, "it sounded like a diesel" He got a new truck from it.

You, you'll be fine. Slap your friends for me.

Thats what I do to every car once a year.
Its one hell of a fuel injector cleaner.
It won't hurt a thing.

Hey, thanks for the info, it is hard to believe but as some one stated, unleaded in a diesel is worse! Some moron in my unit rented an Audi and instead of putting diesel in it, drove that thing forty miles back to base with unleaded fuel in it! Needless to say it won't even start now, and the repairs or around 500.00 euro! any ways, thanks for the info. :D

you mean i can pump in about half a quart of diesel into my full tanks of gas and it will clean the injector without harming anything? cat save? sure cheaper than fuel injector cleaner.
