A friend who borrowed my van accidentally put diesel in the water tank. What is the best way to clean it if that can be a solution?

Wow Lyn that's not good news.

Diesel is quite pungent so it may be very difficult to overcome, however I would suggest to begin by soaking the tank filled with Milton (fluid or tablets).

Let us know how you get on.
