There will be a bung in the bottom of the tank but i advise you get it done professionally, because they'll have to check and test alot of things as putting petrol in a diesel engine can cause alot of damage internally. you probably shouldn't even drive it to a mechanics shop because the more you drive it the more damage it'll cause.

Hi I mistakenly mixed unleaded with diesel in my navara when I drain my tank do I have get all the fuel out


assuming that it should have been diesel then clean out the fuel lines and replace the filters and a few litres of petrol in the tank will mix in with the diesel
if it is a petrol and you put in diesel then it is not so critical as the diesel will mix with the petrol and the oil in the diesel will act as upper cylinder lubricant so up to 5 litres left will be ok

What do I do about diesel fuel in an unleaded tank and engine


Drain as much as possible diesel out of the tank and fill up the tank with unleaded petrol. Initially the engine will be difficult to start and maybe run a bit rough but will improve quickly. Diesel will not damage the engine but will have a affect on the first start and running of the engine until all the diesel is washed out of the engine.

Drain the fuel out and flush the fuel lines and the filter. Failure to purge the unleaded fuel from the system can destroy the engine due to severe pre ignition.

I mistakingly put some diesel in my petrol swift


You don't say how much diesel you put in or how much petrol was in tank in the first place. If the amount of diesel is less than 5 % of the total then you may try filling tank with petrol and keep topping up to dilute the diesel. The best fix would be to drain fuel tank completly and refill with petrol. If tank has a drainplug , this will be easy but if no drain plug you will have to remove tank from vehicle to empty it.

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.
