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.

3:1 gas/ diesel in 2011 kia what can I do to remove it?


This site may have all your answers:
http://www.autobytel.com/car-ownership/maintenance-repair/accidentally-putting-diesel-in-a-gas-car-104029/

Basically do NOT drive the car and have the gas tank drained or talk to a mechanic.

Accidentally putting diesel in a gas car If you know that you have accidentally put the wrong fuel in the car, then don't compound the mistake by driving the vehicle while trying to think about what to do. Instead, call your mechanic immediately. At this point, the damage isn't permanent. If you drive and continue to drive, at one point the vehicle will stop and you will still have to have it towed.

There are two things you can do to try to fix the damage:
1. Try to clean up the damage yourself - have the vehicle towed home if it's not there already, and get as much of the diesel fuel out. How? By siphon if you can or any other method that you have available. Once you have as much of the diesel out as you can, fill the tank with the correct unleaded fuel that you normally use. Try to start the vehicle. It could take several attempts but it will start and it will smoke - a lot. It will continue to smoke until the last dregs of the diesel make its way through the system. It might run a little rough until everything is cleaned out. How it runs will depend on the proportion of diesel fuel relative to gas left in the tank.

2. Alternatively, have your vehicle towed to where your mechanic is and have the fuel tank drained of all the diesel fuel by a profession. They are also likely to flush out the whole fuel system. If the diesel stays in there for too long (and who knows how long is too long for your particular vehicle), it could ruin the fuel pump, lines and injectors. It is also possible that the diesel could have gummed up the spark plugs and filters. If this is the case, they will probably need to be replaced. Getting a professional to do the job will cost you anywhere from $100 to $500 and possibly a little higher depending on the extent of the damage.

http://www.jeep4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service

i have the KJ pages here. (line # messed up)
Two different procedures may be used to drain fuel
tank: through the fuel fill fitting on tank, or using a
scan tool.
The quickest draining procedure involves removing
the rubber fuel fill hose (7) (Fig. 25) from fuel tank
fitting.
As an alternative procedure, the electric fuel pump
may be activated allowing tank to be drained at fuel
rail connection. Refer to DRB scan tool for fuel pump
activation procedures. Before disconnecting fuel line
at fuel rail, release fuel pressure. Refer to the Fuel
System Pressure Release Procedure for procedures.
Attach end of special test hose tool number 6541,
6539, 6631 or 6923 at fuel rail disconnection (tool
number will depend on model and/or engine application).
Position opposite end of this hose tool to an
approved gasoline draining station. Activate fuel
pump and drain tank until empty.
If electric fuel pump is not operating, fuel must be
drained through fuel fill fitting at tank. Refer to following
procedures.
(1) Release fuel system pressure.
(2) Raise vehicle.
(3) If equipped, remove fuel tank skid plate.
(4) Thoroughly clean area around fuel fill fitting
(6) (Fig. 26) and rubber fuel fill hose (1) at side of
fuel tank. After cleaning, loosen fuel fill hose clamp
(2) at tank.
(5) Before removing rubber hose (1) (Fig. 26) from
fitting, note hose orientation while referring to marks
(3) and (4).
6) Disconnect rubber fuel fill hose at fuel tank fitting
(2) (Fig. 27). Using an approved gas holding
tank, drain fuel tank through this fitting.
Tank Removal
(1) If equipped, remove fuel tank skid plate and
tow hooks. Certain equipment packages will also
require removal of the trailer hitch. Refer to Tow
Hooks, Trailer Hitch or Skid Plate in 23, Body for
removal/installation procedures.
(2) Disconnect and separate fresh air tube (6) (Fig.
28) quick-connect fitting.
(3) Disconnect air tubes at front of NVLD pump
(9) (Fig. 28).
(4) Disconnect NVLD pump (9) (Fig. 28) electrical
connector.
(5) Disconnect fuel pump module electrical connector
jumper. This is located near front of fuel tank.
(6) Support tank with a hydraulic jack.
(7) Remove 4 fuel tank strap bolts (10) (Fig. 28) (2
at front of tank; 2 at rear of tank), and remove both
tank support straps.
(8) Carefully lower tank a few inches.
(9) Continue lowering tank while guiding remaining
hoses and lines through plastic isolator sleeve (3)
(Fig. 29).
(10) If fuel tank is to be replaced, remove NVLD
pump and fuel pump module from tank. Refer to
Fuel Pump Module Removal/Installation procedures.
end , tank out.

What would be wrong if it runs and fills the oil up with desiel ?


No idea of what your saying

If you put the wrong product in the motors
crankcase,drain it out & add the correct oil

If you put diesel fuel fuel in a gas tank,then you
have a big problem & will have to remove the
tank & clean it & change the fuel filter

Diesel Fuel in the motor oil will ruin the motor
after about 20 miles on the road from lack of
lubrication

I would guess you know all that I said before you came here

Car cuts out


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.

I accidentaly put diesel fuel into my 2000 Acura 3.5 RL, the tank is 18 gallons, it was at about 2 gallons when I filled the tank with 4 gallons of diesel, I got the car towed back to my house, what steps,...


Very easy! Get a siphon and get all of the fuel out through the fill hole. Then put 5-10 gallons of good fuel with a can of Seafoam this will help to dilute any remaining diesel that is left. Start and let idle for at least 10 minutes. It may run rough for a little bit but will clear up and you will be ok! Good Luck!
