Gas in diesel

Thank God this was not me - posting for a friend

Guys,

Stupid me, I loaned my F250 Diesel out to someone who doesn't have a clue what the difference between Diesel and Gas is.
They filled it up with Gas, and ran it until it stopped.
I had it towed into the shop.

Anyone have any idea what I am in store for?
It is a 2008, so I hoping that there is some sort of sensor in place for this kind of thing.

oh daaaayum.... that sucks... lemme see what I can find I the tech files

can't find anything, but talked to Marc about this at DITD briefly... he said you will need to empty the tank, change the fuel filter and flush the fuel lines - basically get ALL the lines and anything that can have gasoline in it and replace it or flush it. then refill with diesel and try to start it back up.

that is where my knowledge ends hopefully a Tech will drop by soon!

Pretty much what I was going to say.

Hope your friend already had kids, because you owe him a 65 yard field goal kick in the balls!

Does the warranty cover mistakes like this.

I have put 2 gallons of gas in my tank before by mistake. It was 430am I was on my way to hunt. I was probablly still half asleep. I was not even thinking until I smelt the gas. I immiediately shut the pump off. Then I noticed it was only 2 gallons. So I grabbed the diesel, turned the pump on and filled that tank as full as I could go. I had diesel all the way up the filler neck. My truck has no problems. But then again I didn't run my truck on straight gas.

Youre probably looking at new injectors. Someone vandilized my moms truck and put gas in it and ruined three injectors. Side note she claimed it on her insurance and they paid for it.

Man if its a 2008 your are in for a ride.....I don't even know where to begin, they would have to replace fuel pumps, that alone means taking the cab off the frame of the truck... it will look something like this....

then take into account injectors, fuel lines, and whatever else......you might want to take lilred's advise about insurance.....let us know what happens, good luck
