some mr2's have a drainage plug on the bottom of the fuel tank.
If not then unscrew the pipe going into fuel filter and crank over till everything comes out of that pipe.
Then fill her up to the max with PETROL and add injector cleaners

I don't think you need to crank it. From the last time I did this, do as SPLA says but put the key into the on position. I think the fuel pump will keep running like that. Its been a while I may be wrong.

Yeah you may be right Slip you may only need to put key to on position, either way if on position dosent work crank it.
After you fill her up with petrol run a little bit of fuel through that line before bolting it back on to the fuel filter.
As long as you didnt crank the engine with diesel in it you will be grand.

It's very handy to change on the NA, careful you don't lose the little washers!

Good luck with it! Should be grand, just keep her brimmed for the next while.

I would take the bottom one off and point the hose into a container to save the diesel.

After I filled it up and used the injector cleaner I finally
got the chance to take it back out on the road ,
I can't believe the difference that the injector cleaner made,
It's running smother and idling better ,
I'd definitely recommend it !!
Thanks for the tip spla.

It was called " rislone"
I'd never bought it before so went by what the fella
in the shop recommended
done the trick nicely!

If you want even more power get some of this octane booster, you will get a noticeable increase in power.
I used to be able to get it in halfords but now they dont seem to have it anymore.
