The gas/diesel was in a can from your Mum or you bought the gas/diesel at a gas station ?
The station needs to be responsible if you bought a gas/diesel mix from them.
You will have to have it towed to a mechanic. The lines and tank will have to be emptied of diesel and flushed out. The plugs will need to be changed and it could have ruined your catalytic convertor.
My daughter did a similar thing to her car.
Bad news - it can be a very expensive fix if the cat. convertor is ruined.
Yes, u definitely can add air to ur tires at any Walmart gas station, 7-11 gas station. And mor gas stations should have the air pump. If u don't know how to though, try to pump the tires so they don't look anything like flat. If u can't tell any difference between flat, and full, there's an image below. Whenever u press the throttle( the thing at the lady's pointing finger), it pumps the air. Some gas stations might have free air pumps, but almost all of them u gotta pay like a dollar or something. When pumping air, I wouldn't go more than 4 on a car like that. How to tell if u have 4 units( I'm not sure what the official name of those units is) or less, is when u let go of the throttle( and press the long end to the valve on the tire with ur other hand) there's gonna pop out a small thing out of the short end. It's gonna have numbers from 1 and up. U want ur number to be at 3, maybe 3.5, but 4 is the max I would go on a car like that. If it still doesn't make sense on how to use it, I think the gas station staff should have no problem showing u how to use it
Fuel not flowing to the engine. I had a Cutlass (for a week) that would shut down for no apparent reason. After being towed 4x, I told the garage to drop the gas tank and flush it out, since I thought it might be bad gas that the previous owner could have purchased. When I returned, they showed me a handful of small tinfoil balls that were floating in the tank. Whenever I accelerated, the tinfoil balls were sucked into the screen that protected the gas line from foreign objects being sucked into the engine. I knew it was fuel related but, I had to convince the mechanics. I'm sure you don't have tinfoil in your gas but, you may have a clogged fuel filter if you bought gas when the tanks at the gas station were almost empty. I'm betting your problem is fuel related, in some way. Find a mechanic you can trust. Good luck, John!
alot of manufactures say to use premium . its not etched in stone though try regular gas if the car runs badly then go back to premium also i would suggest to use stations like exxon/texaco/amocobp these stations add an extra additive to there gasoline that discount stations may not use.
Do you use only one gas station? Try another station / brand, it could be that the gas supplied to your station is off. I had a similar problem with my old Land Rover, then we found out that there was some illuminating paraffin in the gas. It didn't have a light to show a problem, but just didn't have power everytime I used a certain gas station. The dealer is now under investigation for diluting his gas to make some easy bucks.
Your best bet is to reinstall the maps, from scratch. This will ensure that all the maps are included. This guide should help you out: http://www.tomtom.com/support/solution.php?GID=1&PID=1682&CID=224-225&Language=1
