If your car is not a Diesel, YES! It will harm your car. Diesel fuel is less refined than conventional gas. It has contaminants and water in it. You may end up with carburetor problems, and if you have fuel injecion you may have a very costly fuel injector repair on your hands. Please only use the fuel recommended for your car. Most cars nowadays have that printed on the inside of the gas tank door where the cap is.
