I have an X3 diesel. Stupidly I put some petrol in the tank last night - 7 litres. I then filled up with diesel. It was then driven.Will I get away with it, has the damage been done, should I get it drained?
Thank you,
Alex Biddle.

I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
I would advise having the system drained and fully cleaned out.
Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
