2014 Chevrolet Cruze - Diesel in my gas tank

I put 0.9 litre of diesel in my car by mistake but I mixed it with 47 l of gas so will my car ok or it will cause damage

That’s the equivalent of 0.24 gallons of diesel in 12.42 gallons of gasoline…drive on, you’ll be fine. If you’re really worried about it, you could refill when you hit a half a tank, but I don’t think that’ll be necessary

Please tell us how you did that . The diesel nozzle is not supposed to fit a gas filler tube.

Because OP said litre’s, I’m assuming they’re overseas…I don’t know if the nozzle is bigger for diesel overseas like they are in the US

Good point , and this is the 4th or 5th post like this in the last few weeks.

I would like to see at least one comeback to tell us how they manage to get diesel in a gas tank.
