diesel fuel with gas in it

i got some fuel from a girl friend of the mother inlaws, she claims she was at a 1/8th of tank before accidentaly filled up with diesel. the fuel smells like gas, would i be safe to run five gallons of it a time with a 3/4 of full tank? or should i just burn it in my heating stove?

But would you trust "there is ABOUT an 1/8th of a tank"?

Re: diesel fuel with gas in it

I wouldn't take the chance. This gamble can lead to more money in repairs than saved on one tank. Make some molotov cocktails with it. Always a good time.

dont do it, the gasoline has no lubricating properties and whatever diesel there is left wont matter.
