Myria: What does the difference between the fuels do to a gasoline car? Forgive my ignorance.../not a car girl
Marcintosh: Oh forgot about the tank cleaning and the Haz-Mat issue- where to put all that useless poison?
foxyshadis: Abe Vigoda's Ghost: This would be more of an issue if gas was introduced into a diesel system.Don't all modern diesel engines come with knock sensors to prevent outright damage? Otherwise, yeah, good luck salvaging that engine, my mom's BF has lots of stories of new hires doing that.
LS1Bird: You can't even pump your gas in Jersey. I'm shocked, SHOCKED, that one of the professional gas attendants did this!
JacksonBryan: eKonk: I wouldn't expect this to be too big a deal for most cars. A bit more smoke/smell from the exhaust, sure. On the other hand, with all these new-fangled emissions controls and sensors, who knows what might happen to the cars down the road?It's big enough deal that most cars will knock and stall. Depending on how much was mixed and it doesn't take much to alter gasoline.Diesel is part of the kerosene world, like jet fuel (not AVgas), so it's flashpoint is much higher than gasoline.
