I 've gone and done the dreaded mis fuel!!
I'm not after any advice and definitely no scaremongers please! I feel bad enough, and what is done is done.
I just wanted to make a 'mini diary' and keep you informed of how I get on.
Put 16 litres of unleaded into her - she was on empty. I was on my way to work and had an important meeting 1st thing. All I could think of was to top up with diesel, I squeezed 48 litres in, and off I went, only two miles and all was ok.
No problems but only done a further 25 miles - keeping revs low and not putting foot down.
Now done 72 miles - squeezed some more diesel in (£7.22)
Sunday 8th - today
Another 75 miles and another £9.00 worth of diesel.
So far all has been OK, absolutely no difference to the way she is driving, (there is a difference to the way I'm driving though - no radio on, no revs, just like the local vicar!)
Now I'm not stupid enough to think that I've got away with anything just yet, but fingers crossed.
I wouldn't do it again the stress is unbearable
I would recommend getting the tank drained, but really I had no choice.
I'll keep you posted.
