got bad fuel now lots of problems.

I bought a bad tank of fuel about 10 days ago... I have changed the fuel filters twice. today when I pulled the engine fuel filter and turned the key on there was a very delayed fuel overflow and wasn't like it had much pressure at all. the truck will not start on its on but with a very small shot of starting fluid it fires up but runs sluggish has a sluggish feel while driving... any suggestions???

truck info 2006 f350 6.o

2006 F350 4X4 Lariat... Just getting started with this one... afe air intake, edge juice platinum with attitude, coolant filter kit, high idle switch added, blue spring conversion Fan clutch switch, daystar leveling kit, zoodad, a few extra lights, custom gooseneck hitch and air bags on the rear

Well this is not my expertise but drain the fuel tank ASAP (I know it is a waist) change out the fuel filters again.... You might need to drain or "Blow" the fuel lines out.... If you have pics of the "old" filters that might help us out also... And any CEL or another lights on???

Then report back...

Where did you get the fuel from???
And I would let the filling station know also...

Test the fuel, if it's bad drain it, and check your fuel pressure.

6.0L diesel operating fuel line primary pump pressure 310-379 kPa (45-55 psi)
Key on, engine running 6.0L diesel 310-379 kPa (45-55 psi)
Key on, engine off 6.0L diesel 0-379 kPa (0-55 psi)

Let your insurance company know about the fuel.
