Accidentally put unleaded fuel instead of diesel in 2013 D22 drove approx 10k

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.

Chainsaw wont stay running Runs 30sec to about 1 1/2 min seems to be starved for fuel

Initial carb setting is 1 full turn out on both low and high side and retry. If no difference, then turn the low side out and additional 1/4 to 1/2 turn CCW. If that makes no difference, then it's time for a carburetor rebuild.

This is oviously fuel starvation, the first thing to do before speding too much time on it is to replace the fuel filter in the fuel tank, hook the hose out with a piece of bent wire, pull the filter off and replace, as a quick test pull the filter off, let the fuel hose go back into the tank, make sure the tank is full, now try. Do not leave like this you must fit a new filter.

Empty the tank completely. The additive you put in with only a gallon of fuel is not combustible and won't run. Bleed the system, after replacing the filter and refill the tank with fresh fuel by cranking and open all injectors one at a time, starting with the one closest to the injector distribution pump, until you get clean fuel from each injector. It will start and run shortly. Never put any additive in the tank without the tank being full of fuel after the additive is put in. All these additives, like I said, are non-combustible.
