Best Answer

I always ran my Volkswagen diesel in the winter one gallon of petrol to a tank of fuel. At this time diesel was not being made with anti freeze additive so lorries and early cars on diesel would fuel freeze in severe weather. I had two cars and both ran for 100,000 giving me no engine problems so a small amount will not bother a tank full of diesel or the engine
