hi there,im cam, a licenced diagnostic tech.If you havnt started it yet, thats a bonus, as you will just have to drain the tank.you can siphon the fuel out till the tank is empy, than fill the tank as mutch as you can to dilute any other petrol.if you have started it, this will require a more extensive drain, as the fuel filter must be replaced after the tank, the fuel lines and injection system must be drained and flushed.
