Hello and welcome to just answer. Sorry about that. At this point you will probably need to have the van towed to a garage so that they can get the vehicle up on a lift. Then the 2 options will be to remove the fuel filler neck at the tank. Then a siphon hose can be inserted into the tank to remove the diesel. The other option would be to remove the fuel line at the fuel rail on the engine and use the fuel pump in the tank to pump it out into a container. I have done it that way before. They can jump the fuel pump relay to keep it running. Note that it is not as bad to put diesel into a petrol vehicle. Putting petrol into a diesel vehicle can be bad. You can destroy the injection pump.
I hope this helps!
Hello, just checking back to see if you received my answer.
I see. Is there anyway that you can have someone come out to where the van is and do this for you? If so, then they will need to bring with them some sort of fuel container to pump the diesel fuel into and then dispose of it safely.
