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?

Well if you are getting Diesel it certainly is NOT gas. If your car runs on regular filling with premium hurts nothing except your wallet.

Same if you car runs on premium filling it with regular also will not do any harm. In all modern cars the computer will adjust for the lower octane.

In fact an auto racer always dumps regular in his Corvette without any problems, there is a writeup somewhere on the web.

Once, I pumped premium into my wife's car; it's a force of habit since premium is recommended for my car and that's what I use.
