HAVE YOU CHECKED THE FUEL LINES WHERE THE FUEL PRIMING PUMP IS CONNECTED FOR ANY CHAFFING THEY ARE COMMON FOR CHAFFING BESIDE THE FUEL FILTER WHICH WOULD EXPLAIN WHY FUEL IS RETURNING TO FUEL TANK.

When you say you filled it with petrol and then it ran for two days. Do you mean you ran it on petrol for two days or you had the petrol drained out of the tank and had the fuel filter changed without running the engine with the fuel in it and then the problems started after two days of running.

If I put diesel in my Ford Fusion 2008 instead of regular gas, is there a chance that the fuel pump shut-off switch kicked in? Because when I go to start it the engine cranks but does not start. Help!


Diesel in petrol car This is far less common as the diesel nozzle is physically larger than the petrol filler neck on most cars.

Do not turn over the engine!

Diesel in petrol can cause serious damage - particularly to direct injection (GDI) petrol engines.

You will need to flush the fuel tank and the fuel line system.

Since Fiesta diesels are a pretty new release I would take it back to the dealer under warranty, assuming it is still under warranty. It may be a blocked fuel filter, or contaminated fuel as it sounds like it is starving. Being so new I doubt that'd be the case, unless you've accidentally put petrol in it?? My daughter filled her new diesel up at the petrol bowser on the second fill and paid quite a fee to have the system drained and reprimed with new diesel fuel.

Can i use biodiesel in a 1.4 tdci ford fusion


when mr deisel invented the engine he used peanut oil (diesel fuel wasnt invented)you can use biodiesel in any diesel engine although the makers(ford etc)will tell you NO(they dont want any warranty problems).
the only downside is biodiesel will clean lines/tank and any free floating bits will clog filters.some fuel lines will need to be changed {LOOK UNDER BIODIESEL IN HAWAII) marine engines in the islands use only biodiesel as it is NOT poisonous to marine life.

Ford Focus Deisel chokes on acceleration


Hi mate.

This sounds like a fuel problem.

Some one may have have filled up with petrol. If so you will have to drain the feul tank and change your feul filter.

If only diesel has been put into the tank then carry on as follows until you solve the problem.

Change your fuel filter and air cleaner for a start.

Check your timing.

If you still have the problem, then have your injectors cleaned and reset.

If the problem is still there then you will have to have the fuel pump reconditioned.

You can also check your leak off pipes between the injectors to see if they are in good condition.

I trust this will help you.
