Gasoline is a solvent. Diesel is an oil. If you use the wrong fuel in your engine you could ruin your Throttle Position Sensor.

He put gas in his diesel because he was fantasizing about reverse roll quarter sawing a big sycamore log :D :D :D

I my old 7.3 I added stale gas a few times to the diesel tank, but only about 1 qt to a full tank of diesel, just to get rid of the stale gas. In that engine I never saw an issue. I also never did it in two fuelings in a row, I ran a tank or two then added another qt until I had used up the stale gas.

In keeping with my word I tried to find a name on my pump.
There is none what so ever.
The only thing on the sticker is the do's and don't's for use.
I'll try to find out from the lawn mower shop who ordered it for me.

looks a lot like this I found online:

"Mityvac 7400 - Fluid evacuator 1.9 gallon"

In my house I'm the boss, I know this because my wife said so, I only hope she doesn't change her mind!

New to me Timber Harvester that I'm learning to operate, been building a home built mill for a while, should be ready to make sawdust with it someday if I ever quit "modifying" the design.

I always heard them called an Arky or Okie credit card, not sure which is the proper or original name.
