What to do when you put gas in a diesel motor?

Siphon it all out. Petrol (Gas) and diesel mix incredibly well so it is impossible to siphon off just the petrol, you need to remove the whole lot and then full it up with diesel.Depending on how old the car/truck is, it will respond differently to having petrol go through it. Newer direct injection/common rail/turbo diesels will not like having petrol run through them at all, and might mean replacing both the high and low pressure pumps(Diesel acts as a lubricant for these and when petrol is run through them it washes all the lube away) and the turbo etc. Older diesels might get away with running a bit of petrol through them, but again it is recommended removing all the petrol and just putting diesel in.Even putting a small amount of petrol in a diesel tank will dilute the lubricating power of diesel and may damage parts.In short, when you put petrol in a diesel, grab yourself some hose and siphon it all out!

Have got petrol in diesel citroen Picasso what do you need to do?

I have a 52 plate Picasso and my slightly dimmer half put 20 pounds of petrol in my diesel car. There was about 5 - 10 pounds of diesel already in the tank. I simply syphoned the tank with a hose and a bucket. doesnt taste nice i know, then filled it with diesel and a fuel treatment and ive had no problems since. this was a year ago now. Its not usually bad this way round as truck drivers put a small amount of petrol in their tanks to stop them freezing in the winter. its when you put diesel in a petrol engine that you've got a problem.
