If you're asking what will happen if you put gasoline in a diesel engine, the engine will be destroyed if you run it on gasoline.
Yes, never put oil formulated for a diesel in a gasoline engine.
Yes, petrol/gasoline will severely damage a diesel engine.
Gasoline in a Diesel vehicle will do some serious damage to the engine.
Don't know how much gasoline was put in or how much diesel was in the tank before gasoline was added but if you didn't run the engine after the gasoline was put in and you drained it, you should be okay.
Gasoline engine is an internal combustion engine where a diesel is an internal compression engine. Gasoline is highly flammable and explodes when an electrical spark is applied to it where diesel explodes when it is put under pressure
If it is a car that has a diesel engine, it won't break down...But if the car has a gasoline engine, you risk causing a lot of damage if you put diesel fuel into the tank instead of gasoline (aka gas or petrol) fuel... If that is what you were asking about, please see the answers to the Related Questions shown below.
If the engine is a diesel use diesel fuel. If the engine is a gasoline engine use unleaded gasoline.
Diesel engines have a much higher compression ratio than gasoline engines. Therefore, you need to drain all the fuel you can out of your tank and fill it with diesel. Gas in a diesel engine will go boom, and destroy your engine.
Flex fuel does not mean you can use diesel. It means the engine can run on pure gasoline or on E85 gasoline. If you put diesel in this vehicle it simply will not run. Diesel can only be used in a diesel engine.
Who told you it is harmful? It is only harmful if it is a Diesel engine. If it is a petrol (gasoline) engine then Petrol is what it takes to run.
Diesel in a gasoline engine will not harm the engine other than that, depending on how much diesel you put in the tank, it will simply not run. It may clog the fuel filter or injectors but will do no other damage. Drain the tank and fill it up with gasoline if you put in over a couple of gallons.
Can you? Sure you can. Should you? NO! A gasoline engine will not run on diesel. You will end up having to drain the tank, flush the fuel lines, replace the filter, and possibly the injectors.
Only if you put diesel in gas tank.
NO!!! It's not the same kind of engine. A diesel engine has glow plugs, a gasoline engine has spark plugs. A diesel engine ignite the fuel by compression, the gasoline engine ignite it with spark plugs.Some people add a SMALL amount of gasoline to their diesel fuel in the winter when the temperature falls below -20 deg celsius (5 deg below zero F), to prevent the diesel from turning waxy.
If you put gasoline in your diesel engine, first be sure to keep the engine turned off. If you have already started the engine, turn it off. Then, drain the fuel tank, remove and replace the fuel filter, and fill the tank with diesel. This should fix the problem.
If it is a car which has an engine that runs on regular gasoline (gas or petrol), and as long as its engine doesn't need the "high octane" type of gasoline - such as certain sports cars - then it should run just fine!But if the car has a diesel engine, you risk causing a lot of damage if you put gasoline fuel into the tank instead of diesel fuel... If that is what you were asking about, please see the answers to the Related Questions shown below.
Yes, if a sufficient quantity of gasoline went through it. Knock in the engine from detonation is going to be the main problem, which could ultimately render the engine useless.
Put diesel fuel in a gasoline vehicle and it will not run at all.
You could damage the Engine because Gasoline is potent than Diesel
Empty your tank out, drain the fuel lines, as the gasoline will damage your diesel engine.
Never put gas in a diesel car. And never put diesel in a gas car. An engine is built to handle one and not the other.
What happens is you must remove the petrol immediately. Petrol or gasoline will destroy a diesel engine.
definitley diesel its a much more effecient engine and surprisingly burns much cleaner than gasoline especially in performance if you put 5grand into a diesel truck your lookin at close to 30 mpgs or more as to were a gasoline engine would be getting only about 8
It does not have any sort of fuel type sensor, putting gasoline into the fuel tank of a diesel Mercedes will likely destroy the engine.
