What happens when engine oil and gasoil are mixed?

The mixture of engine oil and gasoil can be damaging for the vehicle's engine. Gasoil isn't designed to lubricate the engine and its mixture with oil reduces the latter's capacity to lubricate the engine's moving parts. This can cause excessive friction, overheating, and damage in the engine. Therefore, it is important to avoid this mixture and, if it accidentally happens, completely drain the fuel tank and take the vehicle to a repair shop for its inspection and repair.
