Had about 4 gal of diesel in tank and someone put 5 galons of gas in tank. Drove a mile and stopped for not sure how long. Went back out to start and would not start.


it all depends on how much diesel remained in the tank before the gasoline was added, and how new and sophisticated the diesel engine is. In a 2007 or newer clean diesel engine, any amount of gasoline will probably damage the sensitive emissions control components (DPF, OxyCat and SCR) and system. In older engines with much less sophisticated and "touchy" emissions systems, a lightly diluted (say 90 percent diesel/10 percent gasoline) mix would probably pass through with little or no detriment. It might simply cause reduced engine power, perhaps a bit more noise, and possibly a sharp warning from the emissions sensors that detect something other than pure diesel exhaust. It's high concentrations of gasoline that spell real trouble. Whether a modern clean CRD diesel or an old indirect injection unit, burning straight gasoline or highly diluted diesel fuel will almost certainly result in catastrophic damage to the mighty diesel engine.

Hi there ive got aproblem with fuel tank ran low 3 litres in it car exelerates in neutral but looses power in gear ive changed fuel filter and filled up with diesel do i need too bleed fuel pump or filter


all veedub have self bleeding systems, if smokey, try a fuel additive redexe/wynns to see if you get any improvement first.check filter is still clean after 100/200 miles,pipe may have got bits in it.... (i put a gallon of petrol in 10 gallons of diesel and the difference after was amazing,although you have to be gentle,no hard acceleration/heavy loads for 200 miles)

Draining fuel tank


My son in law had exactly the same problem, he called out his roadside assistance, what the did was to take him to a garage, they used a small pump with a pipe to get down into his fuel tank thro' the filler, pumped it all out and refilled with diesel, they may also have changed his fuel filter, no problem. jonbangor

Hellie11-

Well, I came up empty handed in my attempts to get detailed tech information on the 2.5 turbo-diesel, but I do have some ideas based on my general diesel experience and from your description of the problem.

Diesel fuel is VERY prone to pick up contaminants and especially water... most diesel configurations have some sophisticated filter systems to help deal with this... but good maintenance calls for the occassional adding of a can of diesel fuel conditioner to the tank, to help remove water and contaminants. In severe cases, the entire fuel system has to be torn down and cleaned, including draining and flushing of the fuel tank... and ALL filters should be changed.

Since they force flushed diesel through the system and got you running again, I am inclined to believe you have a dirty fuel problem. I would recommend they again flush your system, but also drain and flush clean the fuel tank AND change the filters... Have them capture some of the old fuel from the tank in a quart glass jar, and have someone examine it for evidence of contamination... water will separate and collect at the bottom (unfortunately, water does not separate from diesel as well as it does gasoline... that's why fuel contamination is such aproblem!)

And since the problem didn't come back until you refueled, I'd make sure the new diesel fuel you get be checked BEFORE you put it in the tank!!!

Finally, get in the habit of adding fuel conditioner periodically to help keep this problem from coming back too soon. Ask one of your mechanics about that, or collar a truck driver and get his advice on the subject!

Good luck Hellie11, don't be shy to ask for more help or post a comment, and if you need, you can e-mail me directly at wldbil49@yahoo.com.
