I accidentally put regular gas in my car instead of the premium

Resolved Question:

I accidentally put regular gas in my car instead of the premium is just one tank going to hurt it?

No one tank full of regular should not be a problem, its nothing to worry about.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
You're positive? I shouldn't try to get the gas drained out or anything?

I am 100% sure, if you are still worried about it you can add some octane booster that is the only real difference. Pretty much any gas station has this in stock.
