Accidentally filling your Diesel Truck with Gas can be frustrating. The potential damage to the diesel injection system can cost thousands of dollars. We have had several of these scenarios come through the garage throughout the year, and when we can repeat these procedures with success (sometimes not the case)…a feel good for us and the owner of the vehicle for sure!
In this video, we reveal tips on what you can do to help avoid replacing expensive fuel system components like the injection pump, injectors, and fuel pump/module.
Removing the filter and water separator along with completely draining all remnants of the gas is crucial, as gas can be very abrasive to the fuel system.
We have had great success with BG Products in terms of cleaning and conditioning the injection system. BG has helped us on several occasions and we would recommend it if you're in this situation.
When you're up against the possibility of thousands of dollars in potential damage to the fuel system, we hope this video can help you. We were able to give the client great news as they did NOT need big money repairs, as they were told elsewhere. A big win for us in the Garage for sure!
