It does seem a little expensive. I would try calling around to independent repair locations and see if you get a better price.































However, they are correct, the only way to fix the car is to drain the diesel, clean out the carb and fuel lines. Not a job to do yourself.

$800 to get your car back up and running isn't that bad. It's a lot of work to remove the tank, clean, reinstall, and then flush all of the fuel delivery lines and injectors.

You need to drain the entire fuel system, that means the tank.fuel lines. injectors.

"I think it is a little too expensive"































That's what you get when you put the wrong fuel in a car, it is nit just draining the tank, the WHOLE system needs to be cleaned out. You can't just drain the tank and carry on as normal, modern engines do not work like that.

you can disconnedt your fuel pump hose to your fuel injection and use your fuel pump to pump the crap out of your gas tank. you may have to make an extension hose and you may need 3 five gallon cans for the gas. Once you get most of the bad stuff out ( a little diesel is ok) put in fresh gas and try to get the car to start. you may have to use some cans of starting fluid to fire the engine so it kicks the pump on to purge the injection system but it should not hurt anything. just take your time and do it right the first time. you cannot salvage the gas with diesel its good for brush pile and trash pile fires now sorry. turn on the key and do five gallons at a time then let the pump rest for five minutes or so in between cans

It's a pity you tried to start it and drive it. That means the diesel has gone right through the fuel system. They'll have to drain the tank & system, clean the tank and all pumps, pipework and injectors, and replace both fuel filters. That's a lot of expensive work.































If it's any consolation it's better than if you did it the other way round, put gas into a diesel. That would likely also cost you a horrendously expensive pump, not to mention new injectors.
