As soon as I got a gap and my tank and my bank balance recovers from the shocking fuel bill I will top it up again. I don't know anything about t5s or cars and vans in general so you saved my bacon and a small fortune. I emailed a company that comes out and cleans your tank and fuel lines out but they wanted £190!!!! need advice on plastering or general building just ask.

Yeh expensive mistake or can be,as long as you don't go over 10% petrol that will be fine,in some cold countries people do add a small amout to combat diesel fuel waxing
