Vehicle Repairs

Whether the need is great or small, there is power in prayer, especially when God's people raise their voices together.

Update: I am not up to $2,544.00. Yours stupid put gas into the tank rather than diesel. They don't think I ruined the fuel system, but I sure didn't help it. Sixteen years of a diesel truck and I did this. :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: Going to the bank this morning for a signature loan. Pray it goes well.
ouch! distracted fueling? that's honestly one reason I won't get anything but a gas vehicle, I'm afraid I'd do the same thing.

Oh man... that sucks beyond belief! Getting bit by your own hand hurts. Been there, done that, got the Tshirt!

Prayers up buddy that the credit union just happens to be offering a zero pct loan for their millionth customer and that's you today! Good luck!

Carlson1 where are you located?
I've done the same thing and it sure didn't cost 2500.00 to fix... I've also seen many ambulances filled with gas and put back in service with no damage.

The tank needs to be syphoned out, filled with 10 gallons of diesel and then syphoned again. Fill the tank with diesel,
Take off the old fuel fillter and empty it, replace and prime the system to refill the filter, remove filter and empty twice more... Install new filter and prime.. With all the priming, syphoning and dilution of the contamated fuel you shold be good to go.. That's what I did for my truck...

Also, If you have comp insurance on your truck repairs might be covered...

When I lived in Richmond my next door neighbor worked for Texas Farm Bureau Insurance as a Boss in the claims department.

He was always asking me about problems with diesel trucks and trying to learn about problems they received claims on such as injectors and the like. He is the one that told me they covered problems like gas in the tank, which really surprised me.

Just happy I remembered that little tidbit after all these years :)
