Not familiar to your set up but as with any system encluding motor cycle. Get a hose and syphone all that you can out and fill with the proper gas. Start it up...it might be a little harder to start but once you get it started it will clear. I once had a guy fill my car with diesel...supposedly gas and I drove the car a long way then kept stopping up with gas. worked fine....sure did clean the engine.

Do what was mentioned above and also replace the fuel filter after cleaning the tank. Depending on the model, you may need to replace fuel injectors and sensors in the fuel system if they were damaged. I would also recommend disconnecting the fuel line at the engine and purging any contaminated fuel prior to trying to run the engine. Start by emptying and cleaning the tank and work your way to the engine from there.

Metopes the tank, clean tank, add clean fuel into system, then do it again.

Diesel fuel doesn't need assistance to ignite, and it has a thicker consistency than gasoline. ... You need to fix the problem immediately, as the longer diesel sits, the more damage it can do to the fuel system, engine and injectors. Next, use a siphon pump to remove the diesel from the tank and fill it up with gasoline.

I put diesel in my F-150 unleaded gas tank and now it won't start.what do I do


I hope you've flushed the fuel tank after the mistake. There could still be diesel in the system, and diesel does not evaporate like gasoline. Diesel will, however, burn off if the engine is hot enough, so you need to get your engine started.
1 Fill your tank with the proper grade gasoline.
2 Try to get the gasoline through the system as far as possible - loosen the feed pipe as close to the carburettor or injector system as possible, switch on the ignition to get the fuel pump to displace any diesel in the pipe (remember to place the end of the pipe into a container so you don't spill the stuff on the floor). Otherwise just suck at the end of the pipe (not recommended) until the gas comes through.
3 Reattach the fuel pipe, then prime the engine with ethanol - also called Quick Start or similar.
Spray the Quick Start into the air intake while cranking the engine. It should start, even for just a few seconds. Repeat this a few times until the engine starts then let it run until the smoke from the exhaust stops. It is not the end of the world to have diesel in a gas tank, much, much worse is getting gasoline in a diesel tank!
This is a first aid remedy, hope it helps.

Used the wrong gas


Open the gas fill door, remove the gas cap and smell the gas fill tube area. If it has a kerosene like smell then you may have filled it with diesel fuel. If so select your favorite garage to drain the tank and flush the fuel system to remove the diesel.
This vehicle should run on any type of gasoline so I suspect the fluid you put in was not gasoline.

Had about 4 gal of diesel in tank and someone put 5 galons of gas in tank. Drove a mile and stopped for not sure how long. Went back out to start and would not start.


it all depends on how much diesel remained in the tank before the gasoline was added, and how new and sophisticated the diesel engine is. In a 2007 or newer clean diesel engine, any amount of gasoline will probably damage the sensitive emissions control components (DPF, OxyCat and SCR) and system. In older engines with much less sophisticated and "touchy" emissions systems, a lightly diluted (say 90 percent diesel/10 percent gasoline) mix would probably pass through with little or no detriment. It might simply cause reduced engine power, perhaps a bit more noise, and possibly a sharp warning from the emissions sensors that detect something other than pure diesel exhaust. It's high concentrations of gasoline that spell real trouble. Whether a modern clean CRD diesel or an old indirect injection unit, burning straight gasoline or highly diluted diesel fuel will almost certainly result in catastrophic damage to the mighty diesel engine.

I recently put in 1 gallon of diesel fuel in my car when it was almost empty and then later had an accident and car . slid in ditch but no impact. Yesterday it started after putting alittle gas in but...


Let me understand; put diesel fuel in a car designed for gasoline? If so your looking at a whirl of other issues. Diesel fuel is not as combustable as gasoline and requires much more compression (almost double) then a gasoline vehicle, also diesel fuel is more oily and will gel up in cold temps which is why there is a heater on the motor to warm the fuel before entering the combustion chamber and third the engine needs to be pre warmed (glow plugs) to help ignite the diesel fuel. I would start by flushing the engines fuel system/tank and hopefully the injectors/fuel pump werent damaged/clogged. Its prob smoking because the fuel isnt igniting 100% and its like burning oil, it doesn't combust/explode like gasoline it just burns black due to incomplete combustion.

I accidently poured 5 gallon of road desiel in my 06 hybrid. how do i get the diesel out?


Well, the good news is that filling a gasoline engine with diesel is not as bad as using gasoline in a diesel engine. There is likely no permanent damage.The bad news is that you're probably looking at several hundred dollars (perhaaps up to $500) to drain the fuel tank and engine and
flush the fuel lines. If the diesel gummed up the spark plugs and filters, they'd probably need to be replaced, but those are minor costs.
First, you won't be able to easily drain the fuel tank. I don't think
they put drain plugs on the tank as most imports do. The best way to
get the fuel out would be to remove the fuel line, extend it with a
rubber hose or something, and run power to the fuel pump. The best
place to do this would probably be at the fuel filter. The electric
fuel pump will pump enough fuel out of the tank to allow the engine to
start. It would be a good idea to run the tank dry, fill it with
another gallon of gas or so, then use the pump to remove that
gas/diesel mix also. Fill up with gas and you'll be fine.
As to replacing parts, or aving parts destroyed by the diesel, I don't
think that will happen. You might wanrt to change the fuel filter,
but even that wouldn't be mandatory.
Since your car is fuel injected and the fuel runs in a "loop" (the
injectors get fuel pessure from the in tank fuel pump, and the excess
pressure is fed back to the tank) any residual diesel will be flushed
out of the lines almost immediately. Just run the fuel pump with a
bypass without starting the engine, just like you did to drain the
fuel. As it runs it will circulate fuel through the loop and clear
out any diesel in the fuel loop. The engine should then start up
immediately.
One downside you MIGHT experience: the "honeycomb" catalytic
converters used by Jeep and many others are quite sensitive to
clogginbg with carbon, oil deposits, etc. Although in all probability
you haven't done any damage to the cat. conv. this is a good reason to
get as much diesel out as possible before attempting to start it.
If you take it to a shop and they want to drop the tank, etc. I'd
suggest to them using the pump to drain the tank. Like I say, I've
used this method many times with great success. You should be able to
find someone to do this for $100 or so. (Maybe less).

Hellie11-

Well, I came up empty handed in my attempts to get detailed tech information on the 2.5 turbo-diesel, but I do have some ideas based on my general diesel experience and from your description of the problem.

Diesel fuel is VERY prone to pick up contaminants and especially water... most diesel configurations have some sophisticated filter systems to help deal with this... but good maintenance calls for the occassional adding of a can of diesel fuel conditioner to the tank, to help remove water and contaminants. In severe cases, the entire fuel system has to be torn down and cleaned, including draining and flushing of the fuel tank... and ALL filters should be changed.

Since they force flushed diesel through the system and got you running again, I am inclined to believe you have a dirty fuel problem. I would recommend they again flush your system, but also drain and flush clean the fuel tank AND change the filters... Have them capture some of the old fuel from the tank in a quart glass jar, and have someone examine it for evidence of contamination... water will separate and collect at the bottom (unfortunately, water does not separate from diesel as well as it does gasoline... that's why fuel contamination is such aproblem!)

And since the problem didn't come back until you refueled, I'd make sure the new diesel fuel you get be checked BEFORE you put it in the tank!!!

Finally, get in the habit of adding fuel conditioner periodically to help keep this problem from coming back too soon. Ask one of your mechanics about that, or collar a truck driver and get his advice on the subject!

Good luck Hellie11, don't be shy to ask for more help or post a comment, and if you need, you can e-mail me directly at wldbil49@yahoo.com.
