How long has it been driven after filled up with diesel fuel?

First step is to drain all of the gas out of the tank, what a waste of money eh?

Next step is to disconnect the fuel lines and rinse them out and change the fuel filter. From there you should be able to put in a few gallons of fresh gas and some fuel system cleaner and let it run.

Does it run?
