Question about 2001 Ford Windstar
My son filled my tank with E85 fuel and now the car will not stay running. (2001 Ford Windstar) It ran fine all day yesterday, but today it will barely start. Once running, you have to keep the gas pedal almost all the way to the floor and it's sputtering hard. If you take your foot off the gas pedal, it immediately dies. Should we drain the tank? Will the engine be OK?
Siphon out as much of the E85 as you can and fill the tank with good gasoline and drive it like you stole it for a while. You can't drain a tank without removing it and the fuel filter isn't going to catch anything in the E85. This is what I would do anyway.
