You're absolutely fine. Go one step further and sling a quart of motor oil off in the tank and get on down the road. I ran bio fuels for years and years. One trick when running waste veg oil was to top off the tank with a couple gallons of gasoline.

My good friend added DEF into his diesel tank. He was spaced out as well he says (at the time going through a divorce) so he had good reason. He drove the truck without a hiccup for 20 miles. I went over and helped him drain the tank, put new filter in and never had a issue since. That was 3 years ago and 30,000 plus miles. Maybe he was a lucky one.

You should be fine. It'll help keep your injectors clean. Keep filling that tank every chance you get to dilute it as quickly as possible.

For the life of me, I never understood why the nozzle shapes are not completely different in both size and overall shape. Like make a diesel receptacle oval shaped where at its narrowest a round pump for unleaded still couldn't fit. Then the oval diesel would also be too wide to fit in a round unleaded. Seems simple enough and would save some grief. Anytime a buddy borrow my truck I explicitly beg them to not do me a favor and fill it. Just to be safe

Completely Agree with you !!!

Oh, and not so much for me but my wife using my truck which doesn't happen often but worse is my 17 year old daughter and she has a gas card. I tell her every time do not fill up my truck unless you call me on the phone while your getting ready to fill it. Scares the heck out of me.

Do anything you want besides trying to start it !

You turn the key you will hear a big pop and a plume of smoke , that's your engine giving up the ghost .

Call AAA and tow it to the dealer. Put a sign on the steering wheel to not try to start and get it all drained and flushed out with diesel.

For the life of me, I can't figure out how someone could screw up diesel & gas.

Bottom line, if it costs me 1 penny more to have a different nozzle just because less than 1% of diesel owner accidentally fill up with gas, no thanks. That's the same logic people use to justify no casino's in Texas.

I made it home
Runs fine
I'm shop now getting new filters

Hope this turns out with a happy ending. I've heard the 6.7s are real picky about fuel, and if the pump gives up, it's a BIG repair bill.

Some of you have been sold a bill of goods on this topic...and some actually paid it.

You were never in any danger. If you'd gotten closer to 50/50 you could dump a quart of atf in it and change the filter a couple times.

I've had some employees do this....one was in a brand new Mack.

Sounds like you're going to be fine. I remember the look on my dad's face when my mom called him from a pay phone in 1995 telling him the truck lurched to a stop a few miles from the gas station and she thought she filled the tank with gas on the brand new 95 7.3 powerstroke. He and my uncle drover out with 1 empty barrel and 1 barrel of diesel. They drained the tank and refilled with diesel, somehow got it started. Ran rough for a minute or so, then just fine. Went on to put over 100K miles before trading it in with no problems.

By no means am I judging either, just to be clear. Stupid crap happens to the best of us. The first year I had mine, I would double check which pump was in my truck before starting pumping. I still remember getting halfway through a fill up and panicking that I accidentally put in gas.

Sounds like you got your figured out, good to hear.

My trusty diesel mechanic wouldn't take my money. He does all the work on my company 7.3s and 6.4s. He said it's fine. He put two bottles of Lucas additative and said have great day. Running fine.

This is what I was afraid of. I have never trusted dealership service.

I was told once they don't make money on selling cars, the money is in the service.

I was not about to let them justify major repairs without hearing it destroy first lol.

I bought my first diesel in 09 and was worried to death about putting gas in it. At 10k miles I had the fuel filter changed and on the way home stopped to fill up while at the pump the wife called and told me to hurry home she needed to leave. I get fuel go home and the next morning truck will not start. I was in a panic called dealership get the long story about the gas not covered blah blah. They towed the truck off and I took the wife's car to the gas station and reenacted putting fuel in it just to easy my mind.

it was a collapsed fuel filter.

op glad it all worked out.

MY FIL did this to his tractor a few weeks ago. 2 gal of gas in a 10 gal tank. I called a mechanic friend and he said add a little atf and fill with diesel. The Deere never missed a beat.

Ran fine all day. Glad I took some of the advise and took a chance.

Dale, what is ATF (certainly not what I'm used to...) and exactly how does it counter the 50/50 mix with gas.

I actually see this becoming a bit more common with all the new E85 pumps showing up that look like diesel nozzles...not sure if E85 would be any worse over unleaded.

I don't think I will ever get another diesel unless I could cover the delete...that whole def & the problem I continue to hear are awful. Really think they jacked up a good thing. Last one I had was an 05 with that engine everyone hates, but I thought it was way better than the 02 everyone said was the best diesel Ford made??

Anyway, I'm driving a 2011 6.0 Chevy with 288,000 miles...the company gave it to me last year with 180k and I have done nothing but regular maintenance. Now, it's a straight up dog on the giddy-up, but have to say I'm really impressed with it's durability. Been a great vehicle for the job application. I'm the only sales guy with a 3/4 ton & already commented to the boss I doubt the 1/2 ton would work with the big trailer & the long bed is a must. No idea what they will put me in next.

You were never in any danger. If you'd gotten closer to 50/50 you could dump a quart of atf in it and change the filter a couple times.

I've had some employees do this....one was in a brand new Mack.
