HELP - UNLEADED IN A DIESEL

2011 Volkswagen Passat • 10,000 miles

I have put 3 litres of unleaded in a 2011 VW Passat Bluemotion and then topped up with 60 litres of diesel. It's done 300 miles with no problems and i've topped up with another 30 litres of diesel.

Has any damge been caused or is likely to be caused, or have I been lucky?

Pretty late to be asking now. I'm betting there IS damage that could have been avoided if it was drained instead of driven.

If there was anything to be concerned about the engine would have ran wide open for an undetermined amount of time. Diesel has higher compression ratio; 19: 1 so it requires less combustable fuel. In other words, DON'T DO THAT ANY MORE!
