Have you ever pumped the wrong grade of fuel into your car, or has the station pumped the wrong grade into the pump. Only to find out that the gas you were supposed to get was diesel or vise versa?

Makes no difference unless you put Diesel into a gas tank or gas in a Diesel tank.

In todays cars the computer will automatically adjust to the octane level !!
