SOURCE: Draining fuel tank
My son in law had exactly the same problem, he called out his roadside assistance, what the did was to take him to a garage, they used a small pump with a pipe to get down into his fuel tank thro' the filler, pumped it all out and refilled with diesel, they may also have changed his fuel filter, no problem. jonbangor

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.

SOURCE: Unleaded Fuel in a Diesel Engine
THERE is 2 ways to do it 1 take the tank out and drain it OR get a small 12volt pump as they fitted to a lot of English cars (Morris Minor Jag ) etc and fit a small fuel pipe 3/16" to both in let and out let and put the one with arrow to tank into tank and other end to a fuel drum (about same size as tank)and plug into 12v battery and let tank pump dry,
When you refill tank with Diesel add 1 ltr of petrol to full tank of Diesel it starts and runs 30% better.
If your dad tried to start it on petrol then undo INJECTOR pipes and spin over till Diesel comes out before you tighten injectors feed and starting engine.

Testimonial: "Quite helpful, think we might take the tank completly out, but whats the easiest way?"
DRAIN IT! - you don't need to wash it out or anything, snice a little petrol in a diesel engine will clean the fuel pipes of any sediment and wax, it's actually a done thing to put a litre or two of petrol in a tank of diesel for diesel engines...
