So you put diesel in a petrol? No biggie, drain as much as you can and fill with fresh petrol. It will smoke for a while and clean the carbon buildup out of the engine but that's about it.

As SeaComms said, if it's diesel in a petrol vehicle then it's not such a great problem. Dropping the tank out of a TJ isn't real hard, you can do it easily in your driveway.

Drain it as much as possible, re-fill with premium or normal unleaded but stay away from E10 until the newly filled tank is empty.

It seems that OP has put in petrol, not diesel.

But later he said it's a 2004 jeep wrangler TJ. So unless it's had an engine transplant somewhere along the line...

Don't forget that a lot of comprehensive insurance policies cover wrong fuel or dirty fuel.

I was stopped at a red light this morning and a ute stops next to me and look over at it and guess what?
"Wrong Fuel Rescue" was the name of the business!
I have no connection with this mob what so ever.
Just letting people know that there are dedicated businesses to save your daydreaming arse......

Wrong Fuel Rescue, in Perth and Adelaide I think as well.
Will come and drain the tank, and does a lot of business.
My affiliation, they are a customer who is dedicated to doing things right - even when there is no clear rules on everything.
