I think that diesel in a gas motor is not really "harmful", especially since its been diluted. However, I have heard of gas RUINING diesel motors, there actually was a lady sometime ago that pumped gas into her VW. It was at a walmart gas station, they had the pump marked wrong.

As a side note, when I had my cbr600, I went to fill it up with torco (race fuel) around here, well here its in big above ground tanks, I pull up, start pumping. Wait a minute, torco is not RED, its pink. It was freaking Kerosene!!! The dam gib store had kerosene in the torco tank for winter. The tank was still marked TORCO.

Hope your truck is gunna be all right. I love diesel, Ive been missing my old diesel gmc.
But besides that, I think it would be a good idea to run fuel injector cleaner for your next full tank.

why do I think Pooleo is lying about "mis marked gas pumps"? In all of my 27+ years of driving all over the US, I have never found or heard of a gas pump being "mis marked"
between diesel and unleaded gasoline.
yet, he mentions pumps being mis marked at a wal-mart, some kerosene, being stored in the wrong container, and his Mom putting unleaded in her diesel VW.

Where did you get that information? Have you tried it?
I have a hunch you just made it up. Why?

I don't think he meant it in the "both fuels do not chemically mix" but as in "these two things shouldn't be together and could be bad news".

That's quite an interpretation. Guess you work for the Psychic Network?

There's nothing in your link answering my questions or stating that diesel and gasoline don't mix. On the contrary your link states "...Gasoline mixed in diesel fuel will inhibit combustion in a diesel engine and diesel fuel mixed in gasoline will ignite too soon in a gasoline engine."

Since you don't appear to be playing with a deck of all 52 cards, maybe you need to keep your expert advice to yourself.

Dude that sucks about your mishap. I hope everything's ok with your truck. On a side note like everyone said, get a bottle of lucas fuel injector cleaner.
