i think first you need to drain all the gas immediately, i think they might of actually got luck by mixing it 50/50 def. change the fuel filter(s)

I read on here somewhere some time that someone said its doesnt do as much damage as you think as long as you tackle the problem immediately. Def give that thing a full tank of fresh diesel.

Thats what i told him to do before he moves it drain the tank and change the filters just to be safe. But I didnt know what damage it may have caused or if there was anything else to do besides a fresh tank of diesel and new filter i know some people

Yeah I am surprised she was even able to drive it. My brother did this to my old truck, He left it idling at the pump and before he was done refueling the truck shut off

happended once, half tank of gas...drove about 5 miles and then realized what had happened (truck started to act weird), filled up with diesel and 2 quarts of two stroke oil, and ran like a brand new truck after that. Made sure to top it off with diesel every 100 to 300 miles are so after that until I was sure the gas was all gone.

on my other forum a guy had a similar situation and he just topped the tank off w/diesel every chance he had and it slowly mixed out the gas w/no problems.

I have also heard that you shouldnt change ur fuel filter (after throwing gas in the tank)for about 500 miles because gasoline will really clean out some of the crud in the fuel system...I dont know if its true or not
