What happens to your gas car if you accidentally put in diesel?


Did you accidentally put diesel in your gas car and did you find out just in time before driving away from the gas station? Then Jake advises you to call a garage. Have your car towed to the garage so they can remove the fuel from the tank, clean it and replace fuel filters if necessary. Jake explains: “Time is of the essence.
