can you use diesel fuel in an electric gasoline fuel pump?

I don't know if it would corrode the innards of a gasoline fuel pump if you ran diesel through it. It would be an easy fix for my friend if you could. Thanks for any info.

Not really sure- it shouldn't affect anything in there, but you never know. If he has an electric pump laying around, give it a try.

yes you can do it. there will be no major problem other than a reduced flow due to the diesel fuel being a bit heavier than gas. on the inbed fuel transfer tank pumps, gas will pump at 15-16 gallons per minute, and diesel will pump at 10-12 gpm.

I agree, no problems other than a reduced flow rate.
