Gasoline....

So, an idiot "office guy" at the shop I work at had to do a little delivery and our E350 cube van was a little low on fuel. Despite the "Diesel Fuel Only" on the dash and cap, he put in $25 of regular unleaded and headed on his way. Didn't take long befor the truck had NO power and billowing white smoke. None of us knew why it was acting funny but we managed to get it to one of the guys houses to work on it befor it died and refused to start. After pulling the fuel pump in hopes of diagnosing the problem (it sounded like a dying cat as it ran) we discovered the gas. Where do I go from here? We've already used the fuel pump to drain the gas out of the tank and put in 10gal. of diesel but no go.

Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
Holley fuel pump, in tank mods, crappy riding leveling kit, DP-F6, 5 Gauges+Edge CS in dash, CB radio in Dash, over 100 goofy little mods
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

I'm sure you will have to bleed the system. It should start once its purged. Just pray there is no damage all though thats a long shot!

So how do I go about bleeding, purging and priming the system? I'm quite fluent in sbc hotroding but I'm fairly new to the diesel scene.

I realized he probably f-ed it up bad, how to I go about fixing it? I can do anything as long as I'm given a little direction. I'm trying to get out of $110 an hour shop labor. Please help me.

You should be able to drain it all from all the lines and put diesel back in it and be ok. But that depends on how long it ran with the diesel gas mixture

I would put a bottle of sea foam in the filter bowl

What I’ve heard is Gas won’t really hurt your engine. Just will not run. Drain the gas, Prime the system crank crank crank till starts. Be careful not to burn up starter. Good luck

did not do any damage thats a folk tale , drain the tank , if its an e350 with tank behind the axle , it has a plug in the bottom, drain the tank, put fuel back in it , cycle the key with the drain valve open to push gas out , after pushing fuel for a minte , close drain valve and start truck , will take a minute but engine will start, run rough for a second and smooth out and run fine , seen this a hundred or more times
