I accidentally put unleaded fuel in my newly purchased 2012

Customer Question

I accidentally put unleaded fuel in my newly purchased 2012 CG7 Captiva. I only realised my mistake when the engine started to surge but I pulled over as soon as i could. I had the car towed home and haven't started it. Apart from the obvious draining of the fuel tank, is there anything else I could do myself to rid the injection system of the unleaded? My previous vehicle was a diesel Landcruiser (not common rail) and it was a pretty simple exercise.
