Default Running Diesel in Veggie tank

Hello,
I filled my veggie tank with diesel fuel once the veggie ran out and now it doesn't want to run off the veggie tank, so I have a full tank of diesel and can't use it. How would I get it to run off the veggie oil tank? I assume the pressure created by the thin diesel fuel is not allowing the pump to turn on. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

What fuel pump do you have in veggie side? You could just force it on and pull the fuse or wire for regular diesel pump.

You probably have a Scorpion pump. They were known to have a hard time pumping diesel, which is thinner than WVO. Mixing the diesel with WVO will help depending how thick you mix them together.

You have to check the whether the engine is in good condition or not. As per the best online essay writing services, too much pressure will ruin the engine. So, its better to check the engine condition first.

we took a 6000 mile round trip from WA to TX and when we came back we were on solid diesel. i put diesel in my WVO tank and it ran to a point then started low pressuring about 3/4 of the way home. when we got home i took out the prescreen and it was dirty AF. i put in a new one and a few days later low pressured again and was dirty AF again. seems that the diesel basically flushes and rinses the farts out of the WVO tank when you used diesel. i would check your prescreen and see if its all farted up like mine was. after i changed the prescreen both times it came up to pressure and ran just fine and i was able to burn out the 3/4 tank of diesel left to get back onto WVO.
