Running the vehicle with part diesel can damage the engine so remove as much of the fuel as possible. That means that the fuel tank has to be drained as completely as possible. Obviously, when draining the fuel tank exercise extreme caution because you are still dealing with highly flammable and explosive gasoline which can be set off with even a stray static discharge. Inasmuch as YourMechanic does perform many fuel system related services, they could dispatch a certified professional to drain the tank for you and also resolve any start up issues should they arise. Simply contact YourMechanic if you desire to schedule that.
