2012 Hyundai Accent - Gas by mistake

Hey I put by accident 20 dollar of gasoline in my car and I drove for couple miles and it stopped is that can damage my car engine and how much will cost me to fixed thank you

Why was it an accident to put $20 of gasoline in the car? Is it a diesel?
And did YOU stop it or did the engine stop running?
Was the check engine light on before the car stopped running?

If you have a diesel, then get ready for a nice sized repair bill…
