Default Help, how do I drain 75 litres of Petrol from 2012 Diesel?

Just made a very silly error and in a rush and being tired put 75 L of petrol in my diesel 2012 model. I havenít started of course and Iím about to get towed home on a flatbed. Whatís the easiest way to drain it all out? I do have a pump that I can use down the Filler neck get a lot of it out but how do I get the last bit out? Not sure if I can get down the feeling but it seems to be more open on a diesel them on a petrol car as there is no little flat there that I can see?

I think they removed the drain plug from around the NS model. Possibly see where the lines come out from the tank to get the last bit out once you have the bulk out. In my unqualified opinion I would be fine with anything under 2 litres left in there if the rest of the tank was filled with diesel and there was no pure petrol in the fuel lines before trying to start it.

Access the tank through the in cabin hatch and pump all of it out into a sealable container. Or call a specialist misfuel rescue company. If you do it yourself make sure your outside the fumes are not good for you.

I wouldn't worry about the last 1/2L, once its diluted with 85L of diesel it will be fine. Just fill up again when it get to half a tank and she'll be right!

In front of the drivers rear their is a hose with a clamp on it. Take off the wheel and just drain the fuel out of the hose that goes into the tank.

Thumbs up

Only other addition to above draining everything out would be to add 500ml of 2 stroke oil to the tank prior to filling with diesel. One of the big issues with petrol is its lack of lubricity and the high pressure in todays crd diesels. The 2 stoke oil will eliminate this risk and be dilute enough not to cause any issues
Good thing you realised it early enough not to start her up so all the petrol is still only in the tank
