If you have put petrol in a diesel car, then you need to act quickly.

It’s a common mistake to make. If you put petrol in a diesel vehicle, the most important thing to remember is not to try to start your engine. Starting your engine will circulate the mixed fuel around your engine, which can cause damage.  You see, petrol is much more volatile than diesel, and your diesel engine is very carefully balanced to work with the correct fuel. Petrol contaminated diesel will explode at the wrong time, possibly doing severe damage.

The only way to safely operate a diesel car, van, truck or piece of equipment which has had its fuel system contaminated with petrol is make sure no traces of contaminated fuel remain in the injectors, or in the engine itself. This is particularly vital with diesel engines, as the fuel also lubricates many parts of the fuel system. Petrol (or diesel contaminated with petrol) is nowhere near viscous enough to serve as a lubricant. 

This can cause engine wear, and seriously reduce the life of your vehicle.
