Gasoline in Fuel
I was told to just fill it up with as much diesel as i could get in the tank. The guy that told me this works at a Diesel shop in Blissfield Mi. The shop name is Mid-Michigan Diesel. They build pulling engines and do nothing but diesel he told me as long as it is under half a tank it would be fine. If it was half tank or more then I would have to drop the tank and drain it, Or pump all the gas out and refill with diesel. I opted for the Fill with Diesel and drive it. My truck ran pretty good for about 5 tanks after that. I asked the same mechanic what will be hurt if i do run it with the gas diesel mix. He said as long as it is 60% diesel or more it will only clean the injectors. I have to agree with him I think all did was clean my injectors. Like I said in my first post I got 137,000 miles on my truck and I did this when I had about 90,000 miles on it. I have had no problems with my engine at all. Oh by the way it makes a differnce on the Octane level to. I did it with the cheap stuff 87 octane. He said if it was 91 or 93 octane then it is a bigger problem because the gas will break down the diesel.
