  1. Hi. Thanks for the replies. mtskull is correct I'm afraid. With a modern common rail diesel petrol can cause a lot of damage. I did drive my transit back home, which was only 5 minutes away, and subsequently read that that was the last thing I should have done. I emptied the tank as much as I could by disconnecting the filler hose, filling a bucket with the fuel and decanting it into drums. I siphoned out the very last bit that was below the filler connector on the tank. This was on the street, as I don't have a garage, and I'm sure that 2 out of every 3 passers by would stop to tell me of the time that they did the same thing to their diesel. Anyway, I filled it back up with diesel and it started 1st time and seems to drive fine. When the tank was half full I brimmed it again and have had no issues since. Apart from 65 litres of mixed fuel that I need to get rid of.
  2. Hi. As the above title states. I have around 65 litres of diesel mixed with petrol which is free to anyone who wants it. A friend of mine suggested that it might be worth offering it to collector's as old diesel engines are capable of using contaminated fuel so here I am. I estimate a 60/40 mix of diesel/petrol with a bit of gear oil mixed in for good measure. Basically I half filled my 2015 transit with petrol during a particularly special moment of brain deadness.I emptied the tank into 3 drums, one of which had a litre or so of hydraulic oil in the bottom. I'm based in Bath, England and don't mind delivering within a 100ish mile radius or meeting up halfway if anyone is further away.Hopefully someone will have a use for it.ThanksRick
