Good choice, i find him so funny.
The local petrol station sells a really annoying thing that fits in the filler cap cover, a friend of mine has one fitted to his Transit. When you open the cover it starts a voice saying " Warning, Diesel" over and over for about 5 seconds. You don't get it wrong I can tell you.
So where does this bit go then ?
Depending on the volume of petrol, you dont need to drain it. If you have put less than half a tank of petrol in, top it up with diesel and it'll be fine.
It's the other way around - diesel into a petrol vehicle - that you must drain it whatever.
i had just over 1/4 tank this to up took m to 3/4 so if i filled up it would have been a 50/50 mix would of done the old girl in. last time i put in £15 before i realised so filled with derv and no probs.
Get yourself a big sticker stating 'Diesel' and stick it on the body just over the filler cap that should sort it. A lot of the car rental firms do this as this is a common problem for them. It might not be the prettiest but it will sort the issue...
