comment what can be the reason my old diesel Mercedes won't start?
You could probably change the fuel filters with the 3/4 tank of fuel, fill it up the rest of the way with clean diesel and the Sta-bil and go from there. Your goal should be to do the minimum to get it started, then you should have a clearer picture on whether or not more steps need to be done. In other words, don't do all 4 steps at once. Do 1, try to start, if no luck, move forward with step 2. If that doesn't work, move to step 3. Hope this helps.

If you can run the old fuel out of it, it makes sense that it should help. Good luck! :)

comment Downshifting an automatic
The excessive fuel consumption was news to me as well. On my motorcycle, I discovered that it ran more efficiently at higher RPM's. Every engine has a different optimum range, so on the bike, "engine braking" is a bit more normal than it would be in my car.

Will, do you have some sort of reference on this you can include to help dispel doubt? Thank you.

comment 1994 Ford Escort won't start
Does this car have aluminum heads? I've heard aluminum can warp easily under hot conditions.

comment How do I safely siphon gas from a tank?
@MarkJohnson - We may have done that too. That's what the forums recommended in order to keep from hurting the engine.
