      you dont need to replace the tanks or lines... just drain it. run some gas though the system and she will get back to work as normal... that for gas... diesel depends on the size you and time.. you may have done some damage...

      Was 16 years old, wasnt paying attention and put diesel in my 66 Ford Mustang. I thought I blew my head gasket so I rebuilt my top end of my engine, took all weekend. Fired it up and knew it was major. My grandpa said call your uncle who know everything about cars. Uncle said immediately, "drop the tank boy, you put diesel in it" and politely hung up. Moral of the story is the diesel nozzle fits nicely into a 66 Mustang and pay attention. :)

      0:38? propaganda? again? men do this more than women? feminist bullshit! men fill cars up many more times than women, the ratio wouldn't even be close? so statistically he totally talking shit. and at 6:01-ish he rudely pushes his assistant out the way like a 16th century peasant? what a tossa!

      Could the sparks of been ground up metal from the fuel pump/cylinders burning, what do you think YouTube "experts"?

      Edit: maybe he hasn't changed the oil in a while and it mixed with the petrol when he put it to a high rpm in the emissions test. The burning oil would explain the thick black smoke and the sparks were burning metal fragments already in the oil.

      I once drove a car on pure moonshine I had about 12 gallons of it and I got it luckily. I was in the woods with some friends and we stumbled across an old still couldn't believe that we found it we didn't want to drink something that strong so we thought we'd have a fun time and use it for gasoline and hell it worked.
