You will need to drain feul tank to start and get rid of contaminated feul.You will most likely have to replace spark plugs and oxygen sensors because they will be fouled.Diesel is too oily to burn in a gas engine.

I think I put the wrong grade of gasoline in my 2005 Toyota Corolla. How do I drain the fuel lines?


Depending on the grade of fuel you used just run it down to empty and refill with correct grade, as long as you did use diesel or racing fuel youll be fine, and unless your hearing any odd noises like a pinging your fine, I also wouldnt suggest using fuel injector cleaner it doesnt really do much unless you use it reguarly

(TOYOTA SURF 1990 TURBO DIESEL) No diesel coming out of fuel pump


If it has glow plugs or an intake heater you will need to disable the circuit. Then you can use a small amount of ether to spray into the air cleaner.!!! If you spray too much and/or Dont disable the circuits you can damage the motor!!! When you spray the ether, if the engine starts and stalls then its not getting fuel. This could be related to the fuel pump, injection pump, the fuel system loosing its prime(fuel line leak), fuel shut-off valve or solenoid. If it doesn't start then it could be related to your timing, valves or maybe compression.
