You need to drop tank and empty it. clean insides with clean dry rag. No smoking, droplights or any flame source nearby when working!!! Change filter. Some water may remain in injection system. use dry gas in new fuel to mitigate effects.

Disconnect the fuel inlet line at the fuel injector supply rail and bypass the fuel pump relay, make sure u have a container made of plastic to catch this gas in or a grounded to car metal one, do it outside, there is always a grave danger of explosion from gas fumes when u are doing this, if u know the gas station who sold this fuel to u make them pay to have it drained.

I think someone put the wrong fuel in it and now its close to empty I've got to drain the tank on it and I don't even know where the draian is or should I just flip the damn thing over?


tipping the car over damages the paint work and will still not drain the tank better to disconnect the hose from the fuel pump and turn the car on
collect the fuel in a container
or you could just fill that tank with the right fuel and the contamination will be diluted right down to very little problem
pity you could not mention what the wrong fuel was as any petrol grade fuel ( all octane ratings including e-10 mix) will not damage a vehicle and if it was disilene for diesel engines then the mix will only cause it to smoke lightly if at all when mixed with a full tank of petrol
again you never mentioned the engine type so if it is a diesel engine then you have to get the petrol out of the tank by the method suggested

Accidentally put unleaded fuel instead of diesel in 2013 D22 drove approx 10k


Drain the fuel out and flush the fuel lines and the filter. Failure to purge the unleaded fuel from the system can destroy the engine due to severe pre ignition.

Hi... Mec C200 W203 2007 model it cut off when petrol is on half tank but when full no problem. .I have changed the fuel filter thinking it might be faulty but that didn't help. .I checked the return pipe...


Check valves may be faulty in the fuel line. Your gauge may not be working properly, showing 1/2 tank when it is actually empty. Have you checked how many miles till it stops? Also try this link.

Drain Diesel from gas tank


No easy way, if you can get an electric pump, or a pump attachment for a power drill. Remove the fuel line, either at the fuel filter or the fuel rail, connect the pump with a bridging piece of hose, and let the pump do the work. Refill with a couple of gallons of petrol. Vehicle might smoke a little till all traces of diesel are gone. Diesel in petrol is not as bad as petrol in diesel. As you did not run the engine very little diesel will get up to the engine. Good Luck.

If the car has had contaminated fuel in then you can just take the fuel pipe off and leave the ignition on the fuel pump will pump the fuel out, if the tank has debris in it then you will most likely have to remove it completely.

Faulty petrol gauge


I had same problem with petrol gauge bouncing around all over the place, full tank, half a tank and nearly empty in the space of 10 miles.

I knew that if I filled the tank I would get approx 200 miles for half a tank so I did that for a while and just kept topping up. Audi testing it and the fuel sensors in the tank had to be replaced. I'm afraid its the only permanent solution!
