Default Running Diesel in Veggie Tank?

Hello,
Filled my veggie tank with diesel after I ran out of veggie on a long trip and now the truck will not take the diesel fuel out of the veggie tank. What can I do to run the diesel fuel out of the tank? Tried the manual override switch by toggling the switch to the bottom, but to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

As long as the veggie pump is running you should be able to burn it. Unless for some reason it's too thin for your pump.? If that's the case just siphon it out and put veg back in.

Thanks!

That is exactly what I did, and found out that the diesel had cleaned the tank of all the gunk and it plugged the screen and my filter, but I am back up and burning veggie again.

Wow how clean did it get it and did you turn heat off to the tank
