STOP DRIVING DUMP THE ENTIRE CONTENTS OF THE FUEL TANK REFIL WITH DIESEL PURGE THE FUEL LINES REPLACE THE FUEL FILTER

PRAY IT'S OK

If you've done this and still have problems, the petrol has attacked various seals in probbaly the injector pump and or injectors. Could now get expensive. (Note that in cold countries, a 10% petrol addition is allowed to prevent waxing, so you may have got away with it?)

Some oils can be used in both petrol and diesel engines. If it states diesel oil on the container it is not recommended as some diesel oils contain detergent.

If you put petrol in a diesel vehicle do not start the engine. Petrol will do serious damage to a diesel engine. You must drain all the petrol out and flush the fuel lines.

You avoid it by looking carefully at the fuel pump and making darn sure you are using the diesel nozzle which is larger than a petrol nozzle.

petrol and diesel are fossil fuels so if you put fossil fuels in your car it should run

The primary difference between a petrol car and diesel car is the consumption rate - diesel and petrol are refined from mineral oil using differing methods. The result is diesel engines having a lower fuel consumption rate than their petrol counterparts when installed in a vehicle of similar mass. CO2 emissions are also lower in a diesel engine than they are in a petrol engine.

User Avatar

It won't, even a mixture of gasoline and diesel will not work. May I add that running petrol in a diesel will destroy that diesel engine.

User Avatar

The diesel battery is bigger as it take a lot more to get a diesel engine going. Best bet is to charge the diesel battery using the petrol, connect the 2 and leave the petrol engine running.
