    Default I feel a right prat and now £220 lighter for the privilege!

    After constantly telling the other half DO NOT PUT petrol in the car and then begrudginly getting AA cover saying that Ive never needed it and its a waste of money............

    I put petrol into my diesel Vectra

    Thankfully the AA towed me home and have arranged for my tank to be emptied and system flushed out, filters changed etc.

    My other half is very smug now as Im the first one to use the AA card and I put the petrol in!!

    A very very expensive mistake!!!
    all my own stupid fault

    It's easy done - someone bought my 51 plate sri diesel and the first 10 minutes he had the car he put petrol in , even though I warned him over and over again .

    Just a little thought for anyone unfortunate enough to put petrol in their diesel car while inside the warranty period.

    I advise you to get a non VX dealer to drain and flush the system etc and change whatever filters need changing. If the work is done by a main VX dealer you may find that any future remaining warranty will be limited to not include items which they deem may have been affected by putting petrol into the car, that includes almost everything to do with the fuel system including diesel pump which costs a small fortune.

    In these cases if your cars still under warranty, I know from experience that not using a VX garage to do the work is strongly advisable. Better they do not know.
