Hi Im David, if in fact there was purple fluid in the fuel, the only possible solution you have is to replace the engine, fuel filter, and flush out both fuel lines.... you may also need to have the tank drop and thoroughly cleaned out...

what's the ballpark for a thorough computer diagnosis.
Expert:  david craig replied 4 months ago.

every place is different. anywhere from 89 to 150......but i dont think it will be needed if it sounds that bad.
