    My trusty assistant added gas fuel stabilizer to a 5 gall can of diesel fuel. I caught it before it went into the tractor. Ideas????

    You are probably in uncharted territory. I would call the manufacturer of whichever product you used and see if they offer any advice. Maybe the fuel can still be used in a torpedo heater or in a home heating oil tank. At least in a 275 gallon heating oil tank it would be massively diluted.

    To play it safe I certainly wouldn't use it in my tractor. Look on the bright side... it's only 5 gallons.

    Yes ....but what struck me as odd was the fact that it seemed even in very small amounts it (gas) could create issues.
    Assuming....that as a gas soluble product it may produce the same bad result?

    I was surprized not to find much info on the subject as this has surely happened lots of times.

    I'd use the fuel for burn pile starter or furnace oil ..or turn in to the hazmat day @ the recycle center.

    Agree, I too was surprised there was little info available. As I mentioned earlier I think I would still give the manufacturer a call just to see what they have to say.

    Look up the MSDS or SDS of the fuel stabilizer. This is assuming that you have the name and manufacture of it. The material safety data sheet might tell you what the stabilizer is chemically. If it is a mineral oil it might not matter for a diesel.

    If you run out of fuel with a VW diesel,, you can stop at the grocery store, and get a gallon of cooking oil, dump it in, and get to the next "gas/diesel" station.

    No way I would worry about it.

    People clean the french fry oil out of McD's, and burn it in diesels,,,

    If you are really worried about it,, dilute it even further,,

    how much are you talking about? a couple of oz? maybe 10-12oz? to the 5 gallons.
    I'd use it in my tractor.
    What I'd do was every time I filled up my tractor I'd pour maybe 1/2-1 gallon of the "bad" stuff in then fill the rest of the way with "good" stuff.
    Depending upon how much your fill up uses.
    I use about 7-10 gallons when I fill up my tractor so 1/2 to 1 gallon of "bad" stuff would not bother anything.
    My tractor has something like 12 gallon tank.

    Diesel is not what I would call a very fussy fuel. Its not like your running Av gas.
    I get that most guys here are very fussy about their tractors and they probably treat them better than their wives.
    I get that but that much water in diesel diluted as I suggested would be no issue except maybe if it sat out in the winter.
