You need to drain the tank and refill it with diesel. The engine will run a little crappy for a while but it should be fine after you purge out all the gas.

    Did you drive it long enough to stall the engine? If so you might have to crank it a while to get it going again.

You have to drain you fuel tank completely, and refill with diesel only.
Hopefully it didn't already cause too much damage to the glow plugs and engine in general.

Accidently put diesel gas in my mercedes, what do I do.


Drain the fuel completely, replenish with gas, then flush out the entire fuel system... Diesel does not work in gas engines. Hate it when this happens...

Just filled the gas tank in my 2006 f-350 turbo diesel super duty (6.0), started the truck and the guage showed a full tank. Drove down the road about 1/10 of a mile and the guage dropped to dead empty...


A loose connection on the sending unit could cause the problem but also moisture in the tank in cold weather could also be a factor in which i would add fuel line antifreeze to a full tank of fuel..........Hope this helps you out.

I run out of gas and and drove 3 miles and it cut off and want start back. Its not the alternater or does it have a fuel air bleed valve or a fuel swithc.


Put some gas in the tank. Only cars from the 50's have what you are looking for. If you like driving something similar to an old airplane, then VW never had a manual fuel switch although it had a a fuel vent for diesel engine to purge air from the system. Starving the engine of fuel will cause ECM to store misfire codes and light up an MIL in the dash.

I went and put unleaded regular gas into my 2005 Volkswagen Jetta drove home and when I went to start car again, it will turn on for about 5-10 seconds and turns itself right back off!! PLEASE HELP!!


Are you sure you did not put diesel in by accident or E-85? The VW will run on regular gas(not recomended) but diesel or E-85 gas is Bad for it. The E-85 can clog up stuff. You will need to drain and flush the fuel system, a new pump might help and all filters as well. Sounds like you got E-85 or Diesel by mistake. If this is helpful, please leave feedback. Thanks, SP

Hho no mpg increase on turbo diesel


Hi, try to hook up the hho gas hose into a vacuum line of the crank case (with t-connector) NOT directly b4 the turbo. That might help. Its not getting enough vacuum to "pull" the gas from the cell. How much hho production do you get right now? Greetings, ****
