    So how much did you put in. I don't think it will do any harm, its to prevent the valves burning out as the early cars had soft valves. your car has solid hard ones so I would not worry to much. go to bed have a good night sleep .

    It will lubricte the valve seats, which dont need lubricating! I dont know if it will attack any plastics on the fuel system! but i would suggest you burn it off on your trip tomorrow, then brim the tank from empty!
    The worst thing is that it may harm the cats in the long run perhaps you can check this.
    My opinion anyway!

    I doubt it would do much if any harm at all. I would be more worried if the car I was driving ran on lead and I forgot to put the lead replacement in.

    All lead replacement does is prevent the unleaded petrol destroying the valve seats. I wouldn't worry too much.

    I would just drive it and and just top up your tank after a couple of days. Its the same as people putting petrol in diesel to stop it from freezing if you done do it all the time it does no harm.

    If it starts misbehaving stop driving m8. But do as sb1uk says - keep topping up where you can. Eventually you will dilute mixture.
