Q: Need to take diesel out of car

asked by on

Added diesel instead of gasoline to car.

If you accidentally added diesel fuel to your gasoline I would recommend using a syphon to remove as much of the diesel fuel as you can, and then filling up the tank completely with the correct type of fuel. If you are uncomfortable using a syphon to remove the fuel, I would recommend having a professional technician, such as one from YourMechanic, do so, as a gasoline vehicle will not run with diesel fuel.
