accidentally added gasoline to our diesel tank
OK, OK. Before you really slap me up side the head: we gave our diesel jerry cans (yellow, says DIESEL on the side) to pangas in Turtle Bay and told them we need DIESEL. But what they gave us was, of course, gasoline.
We discovered this after our crew put about a gallon of gasoline into the tank. We have a 46 gallon tank. If we were in a marina, I'd just have a fuel polisher empty the tank. However, we're sitting at anchor in Cabo San Lucas and don't want to start the engine until we understand what sort of problems it's going to cause. Right now, the tank has probably 20 gallons of diesel. If we can just dilute the gasoline with diesel, we can take the rest of our jerry cans and dinghy into the fuel dock and fill them up.
Anybody have any experience with this and what sorts of problems it might cause?
