Not had a diesel near the house since she had her company Mondeo,and then a 307, thankfully.: But yes, I filled her Mondeo with petrol, well we had a petrol UNO and the Lannie Thema, so it served her right, she got me to do it because she said it was 'smelly'. Never let me fill it up after that!

I put 60p of petrol in my 156 2.4 and was standing thinking "there's something not quite right here" when I realised what I was doing. Not a lot of petrol so no damage.

Re: Have you ever put petrol in your diesel?

I voted yes, although it wasn't actually "my" diesel car - I accidentally put £5 of petrol into a diesel hire car a couple of years ago before I realised my error, then topped it up with another £35 of diesel. I told the hire car company - they said it happens all the time and that it should be okay. Another reason I'd never buy an ex-hire car!
