Mate of mine has just accidentally put a bottle of performance oil supplement into his fuel tank. I've told him to just get a bottle of engine fuel injector cleaner and run it till empty, will it do the engine any harm, its a BA XT sedan.

HELP US

i think more important than injector cleaner would be an octane booster..

oil will decrease a fuels octane and may result in the engine pinging. (hopefully the knock sensors etc will be able to correct for this)

id throw a bottle of octane boost in there and just drive it carefully and gently til the tank is emptied.

Ok seen as thwere is only under 200ml's added to the tank, we've just added a bottle of pro strength octane boost and on advice from a mech been told it won't do any harm, the additive is an engine cleaner not oil thickener and will be fine, just dont do it again.
