gas in my deisel

One of my employees filled my 7.3L with 24 gallon of unleaded! He ran it for about 4 miles as it started to chug and blow white smoke. The only reason I know it was gas was from the slip he gave me. Now what should I do?? How can I drain the entire system?

Thanks for any help...

you need to replace the fuel filter...and also dropp the tank out of it and completely drain the fuel....you cant have any more than a gallon of gas left in it when you fill it back up......put twenty gallons of diesel in it and drive it to the nearest station and topp it off....then go hot rod it for twenty miles or so and you will be fine......make sure to use the yellow drain lever to drain the fuel bowl when you replace the fuel filter.......Marc

Thanks man! Atleast I saw the gas slip before I brought it to the dealer to have them check it out. I am sure they would have had a few laughs.

I didn't know it was that easy of a fix Marc! By the way, can you explain exactly what gasoline does when put in a diesel engine?

I put gas into a dodge cummins before, about 20 gallons. I took off but noticed that it was running funny, and figured what I did. I drove it to the next gas station, filled up with diesel, and 2 bottles of 2 stroke oil, and it ran fine after, but I topped it with diesel every second day until I was pretty sure the gas was gone. no damage that I could see, engine is still running fine, this was 3 years ago. (was my brothers truck)

Go to you tube and watch this video.
YouTube - GAS IN THE FUEL

This guy say it is pretty easy to get the gas out. And It wont really hurt the engine. Good Luck.

Was it a BP station? Diesel at BP is a black handle and the rest are green
