Just wondering before I go away on my Labour day trip if I can put deisel in my plastic Jerry that has always had ULP in it. Will the residual ULP effect the deisel or is it nothing to worry about. Also once I've put deisel in it, can I put ULP back after or is it a deisel Jerry forever?

Simplistically, petrol is simply a more refined version of diesel. Any residual diesel or petrol in a fuel container will simply mix in with what fuel you fill the container in.

Just simply make sure you empty the jerry as much as possible when changing fuel types (note that "petrol" tankers change what type of fuel they carry on a regular basis).

Jeff,
IMHO as long as you have drained the contents as much as possible, the slight residue which might still be in there will not adversely affect the 20 ltrs of ULP (or diesel which you subsequently put in there.

You can mix ULP with 5% diesel and it wouldnt matter.... but i would take a little more care the other way....___________________________________
