WRONG TYPE OF FUEL USED

2007 Nissan Van

Engine Mechanical problem
2007 Nissan Van 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic

My son put 5gallons of diesel fuel into a gas vehicle with just less a 1/4 tank full. He drove it for 3 miles and stopped, and when he came out the car started but would not accelerate. Besides draining the tank and filling up with the proper gas before restarting it will anything else need to be done to get it road worthy?

Hi there,

Just change the fuel filter, and keep it topped up to dilute the diesel, it will smoke for a while but you wont do any damage.
