Unleaded in my diesel Alfa

Hi all

I put a wee drop of unleaded petrol in my alfa 156 jtd. Is this a problem? Am I gonna wreck the engine by mixing diesel and perol? Any advice greatly appreciated

Looks like you will be OK as long as you dilute the petrol by filling up with as much diesel as possible.

A thirsty 147

if its just a wee, just fill her up with diesel and it will be ok.

actually, on older diesels (I had 1.6 VW Golf), people used to put a 0.5 liter of petrol in the full tank to minimize the chance of diesel getting too thick on very cold weather. This worked perfetly fine. I know this is JTD, injection is sensitive, but I think it shouldnt be a problem, as the petrol is even more free of impurities than regular diesel.
