Gasoline in a 2009 6.0l diesel E350 - How bad, what to do?
One of the crews filled about 3/4 of a tank of gas. So, about 3/4 gas, 1/4 diesel. Then they ran it from the filling station to the crew station. It was about 5 miles, and the thing started sputtering when they got to the crew station.
It is a brand new 2009 6.0l, with about 5,000 miles on it. Why couldn't they do this to one of the old trucks with 300,000 miles on it??
Any how, what should I do to try to get it running again. Obviously if they had shut it down at the pump, I could have towed it to the shop and drained the fuel tank, changed the filters, and added a cetane booster and that would probably do it. *Now* I have gasoline in the head fuel rails, and all the way to the injectors. I can still do all that first part, but what do I do about the fuel in the heads?
More than that, do you know if the gasoline would hurt the new injectors in the engine?
Thanks, guys, for any information you might be able to provide.
