Default Running Diesel in Veggie tank

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.
