The following sites have done some research albeit from media sources

Wow. So it's not just Microsoft and AOL and cancer spam, there's petrol spam too!

In both diesel and petrol Pajeros (and most other makes) excess fuel is returned from the injector pump / fuel rails to the tank and will eventually heat the tank up quite noticeably. In Diesels the excess fuel circulation is used to cool the pump and the excess flow is several liters per minute.

So if you are pumping diesel one day avgas the next where does the flushing fuel go. Mixed in I suppose and so diluted it does not matter ? Hi octane (cetane) diesel !!

Just goes to show that the email is spam, as there's never just one pipe in fuel-pipelines systems & all the different products are piped separately in separate pipes! What governs what is pumped, is simply 'supply-demand' & capacity to store it at either end! (Notice the typo where someone failed to correctly convert all the 'gasoline' references to 'petrol'!)
The links to the other About webpages are interesting to read;

One point they refer to is the issue of filling up at the servo just after the tanker has refilled it not causing problems but I experienced bad fuel this way (stalling towards the end of an off-road trip 20+yrs ago), plus my latest purchase of a J-top wouldn't have been if it wasn't for some bad diesel!
Lately I've noticed that many older servo-tanks are being dug-up to be replaced (or the servo closed-down), with polymer-lined tanks that won't corrode/contaminate fuel. As they've made late model vehicles more fuel-efficient, they've also become less tolerant of poor-quality fuel.

The fact that the initial blurb mentions "petroline" in the text just screams "find/replace" Gas for Petrol. So it was originally written for idiots in the USA who are suckers for this stuff...

Of course it's 99% bull$hit, why do people believe everything they read without question ??

never seen flushing fluid used on a tanker and I've just spent seven years running tankers.
