Idiot requires help... (petrol in diesel tank)
Registered because I have a (relatively simple) maths problem and I can't work out how to calculate it.....
I basically put a load of unleaded in my car without thinking.... (it's a diesel car) and I'm trying to work out the percentage of petrol left in the tank after adding 3 top ups of diesel.
I've tried to calculate it in Excel but I've become confused (not hard for me).
Can anyone give me an answer and a simple formula for this problem? The details are below:
My tank was literally empty.
I put in 16.74 litres of petrol (before realising).
I then topped the tank up to full with 35.53 litres of diesel.
The car seemed sort of alright.... I then drove and kept topping up the tank to full with more diesel.
I put in a further
- 6.56 litres
- 8.30 litres
- 7.04 litres
What percentage of petrol is still left in my tank?
If anyone can answer this I'd be most grateful.
Thanks in advance
