hi there,

im cam, a 20 year licenced tech.

though accidently putting this in is not a panic situation, driving with it in is.

It needs to be either siphoned out or towed to a shop to be drained. driving with it will ruin the injection pump and everything else.

a siphon hose and a couple of fuel cans will be alot less expensive than a whole new pump system.

it willl be a bit time consuming but it is neccasary.

once the fuel is out than fill with diesel to dilute.

If you do not feel comfortable doing this than i woyld spend the money and have it towed.

I wish i had a more positive answer, but this is the correct one

thanks in advance for a positive rating!

and good luck with your repair!

i forgot to add.

gas doesnt detonate like diesel does, so it will eventually stop running if you try.

diesel also has more lubricants in it than gas, this is where the damage can happen

diesel engines are alot tougher but the injection side is not worth the risk
