Diesel fuel in an atv

Would that like kill the whole motor if deisel fuel was injected in the gas tank?My neighbor asked me to put the gas in her four-wheeler cause the can is usually to filled or she does'nt want to spill it on her four-wheeler.She asked if I can put gas in hers and instead of putting gas in,I put diesel in,so we have to syphon it out,and put a new spark pug in.Any one know how muck a spark would cost for a Honda four-trax125?

Hondas rule,can't argue with that

Re: Diesel fuel in an atv

hey my daughters did almost the same thing but it was kerosean they filled it up and tried to start it when it wouldnt run they called me at work i couldnt get to mad because i had it in a red can . since then i got a blue can so it wont get mixed up again , diesel should be in yellow can , anyway just drain it out of the tank and the carb pour some gas in it let that rinse it out i didnt put a new plug in mine but you could should cost under 3 bucks i refilled tank with gas and cranked it over never had any effect on it
hope this helps dave

gotta play in the sand

Diesel fuel is a form of oil so all you have to do is syphon out most of the gas(diesel) and put in the mixed oil that it usualy runs, then go for it , you shouldn't have to change the plug , but if you do it should only be around $2.50 or $3.00 (no harm , no foul)

Re: Diesel fuel in an atv

Hmmm... Well my friend once poured Diesel by mistake into his lawn tractor... He fired it up and said man this thing sounds wierd and smells wierd lol... He ran it for awhile and did what had to do but drained it out... Same problem his dad put it in the gas can, and they didn't have any diesel vehicles so he assumed it was gas.
