Re: OOPS! Diesel Tank Full (FULL) of Water
For me, all the fuel comes out, the tank gets dried and then refilled. How much remaining diesel was there? You could recover the fuel by filtering it outside the tank. I would probably do that just to avoid finding somewhere to dispose of the hazardous material. It isn't just catching the water before it may get to the engine, its the potential for rusting and bacterial growth that would worry me. Water settled to the bottom of the tank, could be there forever.
