Red dye fuel trace removal?

If one was to accidentally dump some of that red dye diesel into their truck, how would they manage to remove the trace dye in the tank, fuel system, etc? Not that I would ever admit to making that kind of mistake, but if I did make it, how would I get it out?
I understand it is a substantial fine to run that stuff in a highway vehicle and was wondering if it would be tracable if run through for a while or...? . Would I need to change filters? Use diesel kleen? etc.
Any input would be appreciated.

I used to use marked diesel in my 02. Now with the 05 I don't because somewhere on this forum I read that with marked fuel they don't regulate the sulphur content as much or something to that effect and that could be bad. That truck did have injector problems twice.But do a search because I may have butchered the info.

Don't think enough was used to be concerned with sulpher as it was caught early, but am concerned about the dye / $fine$. Good info to know though, thanks.

I don't think there is any way to remove the red color from the deisel. I use off-road fuel in my oil fired boiler at home, and the delivery driver said they only put about 1 cup of dye into the semi truck tanker . He pulls doubles to the refinery and fills both tanks on the semi from the exact same big tank at the refinery the only differance is the 1 cup dye. I ran my mitsubishi cabover so close to out of fuel once that Iborrowed 4 gal. from the cat skinner on the job, I had to run 4-5 tank fulls (28gal. each) through the system before my fuel was clean,I was pretty nervous thinking the D.O.T. would stop me in the mean time.

I would think the first thing to do is change the fuel filters, I'm sure they would retain telltale signs of the red dye. Then try doubling up on a fuel additive,thats sure to remove any traces of the dye.
I asked my fuel oil delivery guy about dyed fuels at the terminal, he said they have different racks for the different fuels, dyed, and undyed. It's anybody's guess weather the fuel is really the same, or not. Main problem is if it goes to the dealer with red dye in the fuel tank warranty is VOID.

$100 a gal that your tank holds. Run a few tanks and change the filters.

It will take about 4 tankfulls to get the dye out of the system no matter what you do. It stains everything that it comes in contact with (fuel lines, injectors, pumps etc.) you just have to delute it out and hope you don't get caught or in an accident where fuel is leaking.
