Hello and Welcome to Justanswer, My name is Steve and I am here to try and assist your with your question

You put diesel in a gas engine fuel tank?

hI sTEVE, i PUT 6 LITRES OF PETROL INTO MY CAR A2 DAYS AGO, IT SEEMS OKAY?

Steve :

If it drive ok, then I would change the fuel filter after the tank of fuel is run out of the gas tank.

JACUSTOMER-s307yeg8- :

I DRIVE A LOT OF MILES, WILL IT BE OKAY

Steve :

You are probably ok 6 liters is not that much as long as the tank was then filled with proper fuel.

JACUSTOMER-s307yeg8- :

IT WAS, THE TANK WAS 3////////////4 FULL

Steve :

Then you will be ok. If you are really concerned about it then drain the gas tank and replace the fuel filter.

JACUSTOMER-s307yeg8- :

Sorry to drive you mad, but do you think I get away with it?

Yes you can get away with it. I would just drive it and see what happens. If it starts running bad the engine then. Drain the gas tank and replace the fuel filter.
