i thought he was gonna bomb himself..
why not just make the shape of a nozzle different ? for example:\npetrol shape like a square\ndiesel shape like a triangle\n\nand also make the shape of little circular thing at the back of the car (dont know the name) shaped for that specific fuel.
Who remembers when petrol was this cheap

Why is the quality so bad?

The tester doesn't know much about diesel. Was he using summer or winter diesel? Winter is thinner to prevent gelling (which happens down towards -40 C) then you put in anti gel in the tank. I had a Jetta diesel and the owner's manual said you could use up to 25% unleaded gas in cold conditions to improve starting etc. So no big deal, 75% would no doubt provide lubrication for the pump.

nut case brits ....Diesel and gasoline are both petroleum

I went to a petrol station once to fill up, but then realised I didn't have a car...FML!
The other day I saw a woman trying to fill a tesla with gasoline at the gas station

the dislikers have done this in real life
Well you guys already drive on the wrong side of the road, with the steering wheel on the wrong side of the car. So I can only imagine that adding the wrong fuel, to score the all too elusive hat-trick, can only help add to the excitement! 🤣🤣🤣🤣
not alone, i accidently put diesel in my nuclear-waste powered DeLorean before

In some parts of my home country Australia it costs $3 per litre of petrol. Thats $2.40 usd.
Fuel for a quid a litre?!?! Woah that's cheap!

Now, since you're at an airport, try putting jet fuel into one of those cars.

One time my grandpa had an employee who would steal gasoline out of his gas cans and put it in his car.. after my grandpa noticed he decided to fill the cans with diesel.. the next day the employee came to work all pissed with his car sputtering and blowing smoke.. good lesson learned there

Boy oh Boy, do I have faith in old bangers!
The dislikers must be the ones who paid to have their fuel systems replaced.

What if you put Vin Diesel into a petrol car?

Men are three times as many drivers as women. It then stands to reason that more men would do this. Women are five times as likely to leave the nozzel in the filler spout and rip the hose off the fuel pump. I've seen several driving down the road with the nozzel sticking out of their car.
Electrophorus Electricus
Men are twice as likely to make the mistake because most drivers are men. So the stats are misleading.

Didn't they used to put petrol in diesels in winter to stop waxing?
I would think petrol in a diesel car would be the most damaging. Petrol is a stronger solvent as well as not being a good lubricant. It should also predetonate at the high compression ratios of a diesel engine. I knew a farmer who used to run diesel through the crankcase at oil changes in his old trucks. He ran it briefly and drained it out. It was supposed to clean the crankcase.
Gustav Meyrink
About ten years ago Autocar magazine tried filling some of their diesel long-term test cars with petrol, drove them until they stopped and \nthen they took them to the respective dealers.\nChrysler insisted on changing the entire fuel system from tank to pumps, injectors etc at a cost of over £5000.\nBMW flushed the tank and changed the fuel filter for under £400 and said if anything is amiss later it probably be an injector and to come back in that case.\nSkoda did the same as BMW for half the price.

used to put a little gasoline (petrol)... in my girlfriends MB 300D about 1-2 gallons per tankful ...car ran great, cleaned out the fuel system problems\nwouldn't go the other way though.. if i did i would just drain the system and everything should be ok ....burn off what comes out- screw the environmentalist BS

Guy looks like the reanimated corpse of Michael Shannon.
The only problem after putting in the wrong fuel was the hole it burnt straight through the engine

What about filling a Laferrari with diesel?!!!😂😂😂😂

A friend of mine accidentally filled 3 liters of petrol in my diesel, after which i topped it with 10 liters of diesel. Ran good when leaving the gas station, after 2 hour drive, let it sit for ~30 minutes and it didnt want to start so good. Had to pump the pedal and let off quite a bit of smoke, after which it started without any issues.

I once did that to me mate's Maserati, let's just say it didn't quite perform the same afterwards

Those old diesel motors can run forever, you don't get tat reliability with modern diesels.

Why men are more likely to fill wrong fuel:\nPrior to filling fuel, the witch in the passenger seat was nagging!
You know this was a long time ago when petrol was 99.9p a litre
I once very foolishly filled our almost empty S reg Diesel Land Rover Discovery to the brim with unleaded petrol and drove it 80 odd miles from Scotland down to Penrith before it conked out. After draining the petrol and refilling with Diesel it then drove the rest of the way home with no problem. There was no damage at all and the vehicle suffered no ill effects - we kept it for another ten years!
Mark Durl
just do what i do, actually look at the pump before you put it in. as a result, ive never made this mistake. just as well, my car is a newer model, even if i did the work myself, itd still cost me a packet to do the repairs itd need.
Mayor Fuglycool
Is petrol kinda like the PRO-PAIN for automobiles ?\n\nMayor Fuglycool

99.9 pence a litre. \n\n\nWhat garage and where?!?!?
Nanna Freeman
99.9p per litre... those were the days

That’s rubbish, statistics show that nearly all mistakes are made by women, just like the majority of all road accidents are caused by women, with the most common being a woman going in to the back of the car in front because they are not paying attention.\n\nLet’s face it, most women can’t even operate a cashpoint in under 5 minutes, it takes them ages.
I did that once on a hire car, they told me it was petrol and the paperwork said it was petrol so I put petrol in it and never checked. They agreed it was their fault and said they had a deal with the AA to syphon out the tank and fix the vehicle.

Try putting petrol into a hydrogen car \nIT'S 2018
Advice: Put petrol in a petrol car. Diesel in a diesel car. That'll work.
The Piano Man
Glad they’re more clearly marked in the US than that. Not all pumps pump diesel but the ones that do keep the diesel a significant distance away from the 3 gasoline nozzles (usually 87,89,91 octane or for you guys I think it’s AKI) and instead of a close color they’re painted a bright green instead of black and usually have a different color button to select it with a large disclaimer about diesel tax and sulfur content, etc. for once it seems like it’s harder for us to mess something up lol

I once put Diesel into my private jet to save money! I thought everyone would do the same. \nBut it never took off.......\n\n\n\n\n\n\nI’ll get my coat 🙂
Try Thinking For a change
hundreds of thousands do it every year - Really? Where did you get that piece of information? Sounds made up to me.
Putting gas in a diesel will do internal damage,... such as putting small cracks in the pistons. It will also cause scoring in the cylinders and fuel injector bodies. I rebuild diesels for a living... so I see these this type of damage quite often. Gas will damage similar to excessive use of starting fluid

ALL garages , without exception are dedicated expert RIP OFF MERCHANTS , ther sole intention is to extract as much money as possible from your pocket!! That said the only detriment to you, your life or your vehicle in putting the wrong fuel in is if you filled it full... I in that case you only lose the cost of the fuel and the inconvenience! Running the diesel on \

Did it last week put petrol instead of diesel. I have an x type. 15 down the road it started to sputter. My mechanic knew what had happen straight away. Drained the engine put diesel in. Cost me a few quid. Confidently. He told me every car he has done like this always runs better. So don't panic

10pm at night I put 15 litres of petrol in my old Astra van by mistake. Called a friend who said Don't Start it. He turned up with a lengthy piece of hose which he forced into the tank and sucked hard . We got most of it out then I filled it up with diesel. Lots of white smoke but it started because it still had diesel in the injectors. Kept the revs up and had a shaky 70 mile run home.

Men are twice as likely? Perhaps because men are 20 time as likely to be fueling the the car as women. DUH!
google shill
It works because all cars are actually already electric and run off of the free energy in the atmosphere
How can someone even make this mistake? Lol
I accidently added 22 gallons of unleaded to 14 gallons of diesel in my ford truck and drove it 30 miles. It ran fine for 15 and then started to lose power going up a hill. I realized my mistake and turned around and drove home. As long as I ran it gently it ran fine. I drained the tank and changed filters and refilled with diesel and it is running perfect. I assume the diesel in the tank was enough to keep it lubricated. I bought a large green diesel decal to put on the window where I stand to fuel. I have several other vehicles that run on gas and I simply didn't pay attention. I will now. But if you do the same don't freak out, just stop it as soon as you realize and drain it and you will likely be just fine.

If he did it with a new high compression diesel it would be a disaster
Wow , so Rick could have easily refuled the car with petrol , but Noooooo , he had to walk for 8 days

I am VERY glad someone has put one of these automotive myths to rest. My father was an automotive mechanic for over 30 years, and he used diesel, (in small amounts), to clean carbon deposits out of a gasoline, (petrol to you Brits), engine. He trickled it into the carburetor while the car was running, and it did the trick. The Wynn company at one time sold a product they called Wynn's Tuneup. It was one half pint of diesel in a small can, (it sold for $2.00 a can at a time diesel was going for $0.15 a gallon). You put it into a full fuel tank, and it helped remove carbon deposits. Water will do the same thing, but you must slowly trickle a pint or less through the carburetor while the engine is running, (just like my father did with diesel). With all of the sensors on modern cars, I don't know if the master computer would let the engine run under these conditions, but it works fine on older cars with carburetors and analog, (mechanical), ignitions. \nPS: Any professional mechanic who tells you that you MUST replace the entire fuel system because of mixed diesel and gasoline is a crook and you should have nothing more to do with them.

This is a great idea for a video and for public info Thanks for posting and great job fifth gear,,,,,,,,,cheers.
I once put 10Lpetrol in my 2008 diesel Captiva/ Didnt start the car. Towed it to garage. I was advised to top up the rest \u003e60litre tank with deisel and to top up again at half tank. All good. This was a couple of years back.
Once I put Electricity in my Hydrogen Mercedes once. I now lack eyebrows
theres another way but some people wont seek it
What's petrol?? Is that Euro gas?? What's the difference is it 110 octane??
A friend of mine put petrol in a diesel car . His brother was a mechanic , all he did was drain the tank . Put fresh diesel in it and it was fine !
