    Default Car like running out of petrol or electricity when running

    Could anyone help me with my delima about my car? My car wont start when cold. When I get it running in the middle of the day (which is hotter than morning) it idles fine but when I drive it it seems to be loosing power or fuel. I eliminated electricity 'cause I change everything.

    I'm not really sure if this is caused by a fuel restriction between tank and carby or a moisture or wrong type of fuel in the tank. What happens if a diesel is put in a unleaded car? I'm asking these 'cause the last person that used my car is an idiot - well more dumber than me. I'm on the process of elimination right now, the last thing i do is to flush the freaking fuel tank.

    Thanks for your help

    CHEERS

    you would know if there was diesel in the car instead of proper gasoline. The car would bairly run and it would literally look like a smoke bomb was going off all the time. HUGE clouds of smoke.
