I accidentally put diesel in my tank???

Asked by Jun 02, 2019 at 05:52 PM about the 2015 Lexus RX 350

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I accidentally put diesel in my tank. It was my third time filling up ever (just
started driving) and I just stupidly assumed it was the right one. So I filled up
the tank (almost completely with diesel), drove less than half a mile before the
car stopped. It's at the dealership now, and they can't do anything until
tomorrow. How bad will the damage be?

Probably no damage except to your wallet.
