Question about Husqvarna Garden

Fuel system Husqvarna mower

My wife put dirty diesel fuel in the mower and ran it until it quit, which did not take long. I drained the tank, lines, filter and pump. When I took the float bowl off of the carburator to drain and clean it, it was dry. What am I missing here? The machine still won't start. I have good spark and it will fire with a bit of gas in the throat,

In the carburetor, the needle and seat above the float are stuck shut most likely. Make sure the float will move up and down. you should get a fuel flow when the float drops below horizontal. If this does not happen you will need to blow through the fuel lines to clean them out.

I ran out of diesel put diesel back into the tank and my van won't start.peugeot bipper


when you run out of fuel , you fill the lines with air and until you bleed that air out of the system , it will never start
the procedure to bleed the system is contained in your user hand book

My wife put diesel fuel in the gas tank trying to help me. I have drained all the fuel put new fuel filter on and it still will not start. I think there must be diesel in the carburetor bowl. Is it...


squirt some gas in the carb and start it up it will only run for a few secs so quickly keep squirting gas in ,but not to much as to flood it and that should burn the diesel out and shortly it should keep running

I accidently put diesel in my John Deere riding lawn mower. How do I safely drain the tank. Or do I need to take the tank completely off? If so I need directions.


If you did not try to start it, you will need to siphon, pump or **** out the fuel tank. The last J.D. that I emptied the tank in I used a turkey baster to draw out the bad fuel. I guess you use what you got. Hopefully your fuel is pumped to the engine and the fuel line goes into the tank from the top. If so all you have to do is empty and replace with gas. If the fuel line drains the tank from the bottom and/or you tried to start it with diesel in it you will need to (after emptying the tank) remove the fuel line from the carb. and direct it to a container, remove the bowl nut of the carb. to drain carb. be ready to clean up a little spilt fuel catch if you can or have rags under and ready. Turn the ignition key for engine to turn over to operate the fuel pump and clear the line. Put a little gas in tank and flush fuel line by using fuel pump to clear. Change fuel filter and put everything back together. Remove and clean/replace spark plug. Test it. Inspect spark plug again if necessary.

John deere 2140 had gas put in it instead of diesal what going to happen


Don't run it until you've completely drained and flushed and refilled the fuel system, tank, lines, pump...
Don't run it! Diesel fuel is more of an oil whereas gas is more volitile... Avoid starting or running to prevent any damage to your engine!

Diesel in gas in a 2008 Yaris


I would recommend draining the tank, replacing the fuel filter, you will probably have to replace the spark pugs as well. You may want to also blow out the fuel lines if easily accessible. Put in new gasoline, a fuel system additive, and run it for a little bit (may get some smoke for a bit, and my be hard to start at first and run rough). Hope this helps.
