SOURCE: Contaminated fuel

Your best bet is to contact the station where the fuel was purchaced and demand that they pay to have the tank removed and cleaned.Plus ,gasoline can cause internal (diesel) engine damage. The engine should also be tested for damage,especially with regard to cylinder compression pressure.

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.

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.

What to do when you put diesel in a 2001 toyota corolla


Yes, you must drain the tank. Running with diesel may damage the engine and the catalytic converter. The fuel line and filter should also be cleared of diesel.

This car has a cover over the fuel tank underneath, and the service manual I have shows no drain plug on the bottom of the tank, so it will have to be drained at the top by removing the fuel pump, or by disconnecting the fuel line at the engine and running the pump until it is dry.

You may wish to hand this job to a mechanic. Try a mobile mechanic van that comes to you so the car does not have to be towed.

You must drain and refill the fuel tank. Some of these systems use optical sesnors in the injection pump and can be damaged not to mention the damage to the pistons and valves. Great trucks. Drain the tank.

I accidently poured 5 gallon of road desiel in my 06 hybrid. how do i get the diesel out?


Well, the good news is that filling a gasoline engine with diesel is not as bad as using gasoline in a diesel engine. There is likely no permanent damage.The bad news is that you're probably looking at several hundred dollars (perhaaps up to $500) to drain the fuel tank and engine and
flush the fuel lines. If the diesel gummed up the spark plugs and filters, they'd probably need to be replaced, but those are minor costs.
First, you won't be able to easily drain the fuel tank. I don't think
they put drain plugs on the tank as most imports do. The best way to
get the fuel out would be to remove the fuel line, extend it with a
rubber hose or something, and run power to the fuel pump. The best
place to do this would probably be at the fuel filter. The electric
fuel pump will pump enough fuel out of the tank to allow the engine to
start. It would be a good idea to run the tank dry, fill it with
another gallon of gas or so, then use the pump to remove that
gas/diesel mix also. Fill up with gas and you'll be fine.
As to replacing parts, or aving parts destroyed by the diesel, I don't
think that will happen. You might wanrt to change the fuel filter,
but even that wouldn't be mandatory.
Since your car is fuel injected and the fuel runs in a "loop" (the
injectors get fuel pessure from the in tank fuel pump, and the excess
pressure is fed back to the tank) any residual diesel will be flushed
out of the lines almost immediately. Just run the fuel pump with a
bypass without starting the engine, just like you did to drain the
fuel. As it runs it will circulate fuel through the loop and clear
out any diesel in the fuel loop. The engine should then start up
immediately.
One downside you MIGHT experience: the "honeycomb" catalytic
converters used by Jeep and many others are quite sensitive to
clogginbg with carbon, oil deposits, etc. Although in all probability
you haven't done any damage to the cat. conv. this is a good reason to
get as much diesel out as possible before attempting to start it.
If you take it to a shop and they want to drop the tank, etc. I'd
suggest to them using the pump to drain the tank. Like I say, I've
used this method many times with great success. You should be able to
find someone to do this for $100 or so. (Maybe less).

Unleaded gas in a diesel fuel tank


do not worry about draining it, pour about 6 to 8 ounces of engine oil in it, and top it up with fresh fuel, it will be fine. The only way to drain the tank is to remove it and turn it over.
