After telling my wife she can't drive my truck cause she might put gasoline in my diesel, I am the one that ended up doing. I realized it after putting 17 gallons in the tank. So it looks like the fix is to drain the tank, but many are telling me it may have an anti-siphon tank? Does this make sense? Any good ideas for how to drain about 23 gallons of mixed fuel? And once i get it out what do i do with it?

Thanks in advance.

If you only added a few gallons, you could add a quart of 2 cycle oil to help dilute the gas, but that much gas, best to remove as much as you can. Probably a good idea to add a few ounces of 2 cycle anyway, because there will still be some gas mixed.

Only way to know if it has a anti-siphon is to see if you can insert a hose in the fill neck.

ok. If it is anti-siphon, drop the tank?

I don't think it's anti siphon. Although I forgot what the lip looks like at the last part of the fill tube. Dropping the tank isn't bad. I can have the tank out of mine in about 15-20 minutes. I know it doesn't make you feel better but this would be a great time to install a sump. Good luck

I've never put gas in my truck but I have been able to siphon fuel from my 09.
