Is it safe to come out yet? :poke:

Sorry Bake, just couldn't resist. Actually, folk fuelling up their diesel cars with petrol and vice versa is quite a big problem here. (I'm guessing you don't have so many diesel vehicles over there). I think I read that something like 200 call outs nationally a day for just one of the breakdown outfits (AA). RAC and Green Flag would be similar numbers I guess.

Much debate on the damage in causes to the car. My neighbour filled his diesel Mercedes with petrol, drove it 1 mile before he realised. Mercedes dealer wanted something like $2000 to clean out the system. He got a local garage to do the minimum for $200 and the car has been fine. If you run them too far though it can bugger up the fuel pump. I'm told if you run a diesel Discovery/Range Rover on petrol even for a very brief moment, then it's a new motor and a huge bill.

Diesel in a petrol vehicle usually just means a clean out. No damage.
In fact Abingdon Honda had a RC45 in one time that was running very rough and making clouds of smoke. Yep, you guessed it. :)
