SOURCE: 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

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.

SOURCE: 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.

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.

I accidently put super unleaded gas.on my VW beetle 2002


That is not a problem it is actually recommended that you use premium 93-94 Octane fuel, if you put turbo blue (115) in it that would be a problem but 93-94 octane is the VW recommended fuel type.

2010 audi q7 shows on the board service 700km 30 days. what does it mean? what service is it?


It's the normal car service reminder due. Whichever will be reached first: 700 km, or 30 days. In other words after 700 km, or if you don't drive the car 700 km within 30 days, you should carry out the car maintenace: engine oil & oil filter, air filter, fuel filter, pollen & dust cabin filter, ...
Then you will need to reset the "Service due" message on the dashboard. For Audi Q7 made year 2010, the Service Interval Indicator can only be reset with the VAS 5051 or similar diagnostic tool connected to the data link connector of the car.

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.

Put unleaded in a diesel car


as long as you didnt put in more than 30% of the tank capacity,just fill to the top with diesel.then fill again when 1/2 empty.
you will have a hot start problem so try to let the engine cool before restarting and do not use it for stop/start trips until empty.also DO NOT use full throttle or climb steep hills in too high a gear.
just to clarify.....the us/canadian army use gas in the diesel tanks in arctic conditions to stop the fuel from freezing......there engines cost 1/2 $million ......

My 2002 Bettle TDI has very black oil after 5000 km Why?


City driving is about the hardest thing you can do to engine oil. If your primary driving is city driving it would be advisible to cut the oil change duration by a third to help keep it clean.
