Diesel fuel put into a gas engine how do I fix it


To solve the problem, drain all of the diesel fuel out of the gas tank and refill it with gasoline. (If possible open the fuel line near the injectors, place a flexible tube of some kind over the fuel line and drain enough fuel to allow all of the diesel fuel to be removed. Get as much of the concentrated diesel fuel out of the line as you possibly can before attempting to start the engine.) Then you would have to keep cranking the engine for a while to get the diesel out of the fuel lines and the injectors. Eventually the engine would start and run fine.

Can I use regular unleaded gas on my 2012 MZ C 250 1.8 lt car with out having problems ?


If your car was built to use diesel, my suggestion is to NEVER put gas in it, (and visa-versa). I understand that you could do serious damage, by accidently filling it with the wrong one.

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.

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...

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

Put diesel fuel in on accident pumped fuel out from fuel line in front of filter, filled up truck with regular fuel now runs bad and fuel pump is on continuous when running and pump ismaking loud noise


The diesel fuel is not a good lubricant for the pump and plugged the sock inside the tank replace the fuel pump and sock also pull spark plugs and clean I am sure it is running like ******* the diesel coats the plugs so they won't fire without being cleaned. Gas is much thinner than diesel and the gas lubricates the pump once the diesel washed off the bearings in the pump if most likely finished off a pump about to go anyway.17 years is a long time for new pump to last and in 92 they were not putting in the junk they are now in our fuels. If you need more help or want a price on the pump let me know.

Accidently put gas in 1987 300d turbo diesel. what do i do?


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.
