2000 Toyota Camry Q&A
2000 Toyota Camry Question: Plz Help- there was diesel fuel in my tank...
10 days ago, I got gas and then went to a near-by store. When I left the store, my car wouldnt start. I had it towed to my repair shop, who said the fuel pump needed replacing. After they did that, it still wouldnt start, so they did elec/wiring stuff etc, but still would not start. They spent hours + 10 days trying to find the problem (+ me with no car). Well today, they finally called and said that there was DIESEL FUEL in my tank and not gas. I called the place where I got the gas and they said that no one else had called with any problem + they referred me to their Corp. Office, who also said no one else had this problem. I went back to check the exact pump I used that night. There are 2 diff nozzles, 1 for diesel + 1 for gas. But, the Diesel button was so clearly marked and far away from the gas buttons, that there is no way that I hit the wrong button, for diesel. I get regular always. The only thing I can see that I might have done was to grab the diesel nozzle, yet still hit the regular gas button. Plz help...what would happen if you put the diesel nozzle in yet pushed the regular gas button? Would it give diesel? The gas station said that there are 2 separate underground tanks.Any knowledge would be appreciated for this. thanks - Ladyinamansworld

On aug 16th I mentioned taking it to a dealer. I stand behind my suggestion 100%. ten hours to diagnose incorrect fuel is absurd....forget about how it got in there .... I could've driven to your place diagnosed and fixed it in that time. SORRY. - ziptie12
