Diesel fill holes are generally bigger, to accommodate for the larger nozzles at diesel pumps. When OP said too late that to me sounds like they had started or even driven the vehicle and won't be as easy as draining the gas and changing some filters. Especially if the vehicle is a newer one, the modern injectors don't like the mixture of gas and diesel.
I'm just wondering how OP didn't know based on how you start a diesel. I'm speaking from my own experience, but don't you have to turn the key halfway and let the glow plugs warm up? It's cold outside, I would imagine it having a slight issue starting up. Though, excuse my ignorance if I'm incorrect.
#98, I realize that after OP put in gas in it would start up without much trouble, but what I meant was when they first got in the truck they had to have had a bit of trouble. Possibly after they got done with whatever they were doing they could've had trouble too. I wasn't talking specifically after putting in gas.
I hope it wasn't a new car and not expensive to replace cause your looking having a pricey mechanic repair.
At least you tried to fill it up. My brother is an asshole and has always left my car empty when I let him use it and all I ask is that he puts at least 5 bucks so that I don't have to worry about filling it up before I go to my destination.
Why do you let him drive it if he doesn't ever fill it up? I'd be fine with a couple times but if it was always and he doesn't fill it even though you ask, he shouldn't be allowed to use your car. Otherwise he's just learning that he can use it without having to fill it.
