    My husband drained the gas tank by the gas line out of the tank and the carburator until it was clean gas. He then put the lines back on and sprayed starting fluid in the carburator and it still wouldn't start. Help again

    Drain the tank and carburetors. There
    is usually a plug on the bottom of the float bowls of the carbs that can
    be removed for draining. If not, after draining the tank, tip the bike on it's
    side. This will usually let the fuel in the carbs run
    out. Refill with recommended fuel and run for a while. Diesel fuel is a
    heavier fuel
    than gasoline, i.e. it isn't as refined as gas and requires higher
    temperatures to burn than gas. Once diluted there shouldn't be any
    residual effects.

I have accidentally put petrol into my turbo deisel forester, it now has 30 % petrol in the tank, will this cause any damage and will I be ok if I start to run down the fuel and add more deisel ?

Yes, this can damage the engine, do not run the vehicle. You need to drain the tank completely, as well as drain the lines and may even change the fuel filter.

Deisel fuel finished and it wont start now

Sounds like it needs the fuel pump primed. Try bleeding it as close the motor as you can.

Filled tank with gas and now my van wont run well or even start sometimes

If this happened right after the fill up then perhaps you put in the wrong octane or perhaps deisel... Some gas stations have older tanks which can be filled with water. Change your fuel filter and also confirm that the fuel pump is up to par and not failing.

Can't understand why after changing oil the engine would cosume up to 21 quarts of oil without moving truck there is no oil on ground or coolant please help

Where did you put the oil? Did you check it? Or just keep filling? You didn't put it in the gas tank did you? Gotta know these things.

Have put petrol into deisel car 35litres addedinto tank with about 25litres of deisel already in

You need to drain the tank and fill it back up with Deisel. Also, if you ran the car make sure and change the fuel filter. It may start a little hard and sputter at first but it should be okay. These accidents happen once in a while but it shouldnt hurt as long as you dont run it with the petrol in it.

Hope this helps...

Ford focus 1.8 turbo deisel 1999.

do not understand you what you mean. assuming your car was ok before you changed f/filter you need to bleed the fuel system of air. esiest to do would be to loosen fuel line at the injectors and have assistant crank the engine while you observe for clear fuel leak without any air bubbles from fuel line.tighten fuel lines and start engine. might have to repeat a few times. good luck.
