If someone put sugar in gas tank and you havent tried to start it then your OK you just need to drop your gas tank and flush it out . If you tried to start it and it got to your engine then you have a major problem like getting a new engine

Sugar in gas tank


Sugar in the tank will cause no harm as sugar does not disolve in gas. Drain it out asap.

Someone sugared my gas tank. i have a chrysler 300 m. i flushed the gas tank and now its sitting in my yard. I never turned the key over at all. I noticed it right away. How long do i have to wait for it...


First off it is a myth that sugar will destroy an engine. Sugar will not dissolve in gasoline. Depending on how much sugar was added it could clog the fuel pump sock filter. You have drained the tank, so add 5 gallons of fuel to the tank and start the engine. It will do no harm whatsoever. You may have to change the fuel filter a few times if the sugar clogs it but otherwise no harm will be done.

Sugar in gas tank


if it still starts then your ok.remove gas tank and dump fuel.clean out any sugar on bottom of tank.go throuh the fuel pump hole. use a water hose if needed then let it dry.fill up tank and just run it it will be ok. what sugar does to an engine [and never mind myth busters, they are wrong] ive seen it 4 times, someone in town was having fun with sugar in the tank.anyways with enough sugar in gas tank the sugar disolves in the fuel.then engine,especially the valve stems get hot and sugar becomes a molten goo on the parts,valves,pistons,cylinders,fuel injectors.only the hot parts seem to be effected. then when you turn the engine off the sugar cools and becomes hard like a piece of hard candie.the valve stems are now locked into valve guides and cannot open or close,it takes alot more driving to damage pistons and rings only a little sugar is injected on every intake stroke and its aimed right at the valve stem.one mile of driving i dought will cause problems. beware that if the sugar was poured it dry you will need to flush out the filler neck.if it was dry then very little got in the tank anyway,unless you put gas in it after sugar was added

I cannot put gas into the tank of my 98 honda accord. it backs up. I think it is the flap in the tube. Could sugar have caused this


sugar in tank goes to bottom and clogs the rest of the fuel system. If you are thinking sugar...... than it's possible that someone could have put anything in the filler to block it

I empty gas tank and put new gas. could it be something is clogged?


It is a myth that sugar will mess your car up. Sugar does not dissolve in gas, it will just sit in the bottom of the gas tank. You will need to drop the tank and have it cleaned, and replace the in-tank fuel filter, but anything upstream of the fuel filter will be okay.

2001 Nissan Maxima- runs rough, stalls when idle


Timing belt could have skipped a tooth.

Horrible vacuum leak could have started. Listen for suction noises when you raise the hood.

Someone could have poured sugar in your tank.

You could have put diesel in your tank instead of gas.

Could be a bad MAP sensor, TPS sensor, etc.

Need more details to be precise.
