What does " on a limited basis " mean here?

Modern premium vehicles will feature anti-knock sensors, so even if you were to fill up with the wrong fuel, it wouldn’t do much, if any, damage to the vehicle’s internals on a limited basis.

Does it mean for a short period of time?

For one thing, it means that whoever wrote it didn't do a very good job of it.

The intended meaning seems to be "… it wouldn't do much, if any, damage to the vehicle's internals — as long as you didn't do it too often."
