To run cooking oil in your Mercedes you have to have a complicated system, it he just dumped it in the fuel tank you got big problems. You will have to start by removing the plug on the fuel tank and draining all the fuel, you will then have to replace both fuel filters and bleed the system, and at some injector cleaner for diesel.
