a full tank of GAS in a 06 f355 6.0

Help, I'm sitting on the side of the road right now.
I am real tired and realy sick, i stopped to fill up at shell, tthe bronze gas pump handle was yellow or so it looked in the light, (has a very strong hps lamps above) anyway, i put 125 liters in the tank, tank hold 142 i think. drove 5.6km 4 miles and the truck started running like ****. i pulled over and shut it off and looked at my recipet.
I got a buddy on his way with new diesel (150liters) and a pump and siphion to empty the tank into another tank.

What is my best course of action?
how do i purge the gas safely?
how do i drain the system?
should i tow it?

if gas got to the engine your gonna have to replace some injectors. IF it didnt, just drain it out and put diesel back in it.

Good luck man

You might be okay on the injectors. Drain that **** outta there and put some GOOD clean fuel in it. PUt a whole jug of that PM-23-A Cetane boost an performance improver in the tank.

I had an econoline once that had been filled from 1/4 tank to full with gasoline, then driven from full to about half and it didn't IMMEDIATELY need injectors.

Disconnect the fuel line after the pump, run the fuel pump with a hose on it till the tank is dry.

Best way would be pulling the tank and washing it.

Change the fuel filters.

Pray.

Glad it worked out for you without having to shell $$$$ to fix your rig. I was just grimacing while reading what happened.
