Being a really really silly person I have put petrol in my diesel 308 HDMI wagon 2008

Can anyone tell me where I can get to the fuel pump to drain the tank

Anyone else done the same silly thing as me and what where the consequences ? I drive the car for a short time

Have a look under the back seat, you should see a round fitting with wires going to the centre of it, undo and carefully remove which should then give you access to the contaminated fuel, you should then be able to either pump or syphon it out , take necessary care as there will be petrol fumes about ,
Also you will need to remove or drain any fuel filter that is fitted and refilling with diesel . Fill up with as much diesel as you can to dilute what remaining contaminated fuel is left . I had the same problem on a 2.0 diesel 206 non HDi and got away with just some pinking from the engine for the first mile or two after the clean out. Good luck .
