I have accidentally put petrol into my turbo deisel forester, it now has 30 % petrol in the tank, will this cause any damage and will I be ok if I start to run down the fuel and add more deisel ?


Yes, this can damage the engine, do not run the vehicle. You need to drain the tank completely, as well as drain the lines and may even change the fuel filter.

Is there an easy way to drain an X trail fuel tank


No easy way really, the best way is to get hold of an external electric petrol pump, put this inline before the diesel lift pump (With plunger on top in engine bay) and run a hose from this into a container, you then supply power to the pump and wait for it to drain, Make sure you tow the truck to a gas station and fill it completely with diesel to dilute any remaining residue of petrol to avoid engine damage and make sure you don't rev the vehicle as soon as you start it, leave it to idle for ten mins or so to avoid injector damage.

Tank almost empty and husband put diesel in our 2001 rav 4 petrol car. car drove for a little while and has stopped and won't start. what needs to be done to rectify problem. thanks


luckily deisel in a gas engine will not wreck a motor but you have to take the tank off and drain it completely. when full of gas again may burp a bit but in no time purrs like a kitten....luck that wasnt a diesel with getting gas put in it that will wreck a diesel if you start an run it if no start same u can drain it off.flush tank ....but with a gas engine a little diesel will probably black smoke a little but should clean more than harm...thanks for using fixya.

I mistakingly put some diesel in my petrol swift


You don't say how much diesel you put in or how much petrol was in tank in the first place. If the amount of diesel is less than 5 % of the total then you may try filling tank with petrol and keep topping up to dilute the diesel. The best fix would be to drain fuel tank completly and refill with petrol. If tank has a drainplug , this will be easy but if no drain plug you will have to remove tank from vehicle to empty it.

Have put petrol into deisel car 35litres addedinto tank with about 25litres of deisel already in


You need to drain the tank and fill it back up with Deisel. Also, if you ran the car make sure and change the fuel filter. It may start a little hard and sputter at first but it should be okay. These accidents happen once in a while but it shouldnt hurt as long as you dont run it with the petrol in it.

Hope this helps...

Ford fusion 1.4 tdci will not start unless the hand pump is used


HAVE YOU CHECKED THE FUEL LINES WHERE THE FUEL PRIMING PUMP IS CONNECTED FOR ANY CHAFFING THEY ARE COMMON FOR CHAFFING BESIDE THE FUEL FILTER WHICH WOULD EXPLAIN WHY FUEL IS RETURNING TO FUEL TANK.

Petrol in Diesel engine


do not do anything but have it taken to the dealer. there are a multitude of things taht need to be changed and replaced. it's unfortunate that this is happened , but your only option is to have the certified mechanics repair the damage. hope this answers it for you. Remember in the future that a deisel nozzle is always a little larger than regular gas nozzels. please rate this...thanks
