Lets not go into details as to why this is required..

Long story short, there is petrol in the entire diesel fuel system of my 2010 Accord. Please sum up whether this job is DIY'able, worth it, and if so the steps I need to take! I can't find any threads or much info elsewhere online.

I ***ume it will be as follows:
1. Empty all incorrect fuel from tank
2. Flush fuel lines with fresh diesel - no idea how!
3. Replace fuel filter
4. Add diesel and coax it back to life

Any details really appreciated

Thanks
Ollie

Think you got it, I would be trying to find a way of pumping the diesel through to the injectors without actually starting the car.
Maybe undo the feed to the fuel rail and keep turning it over until diesel comes out

Before trying to force the fuel forwards ( benzene will strip all lubrication the diesel pump requires well before it reaches the injectors), just how far has the your I-dtec engine gone down the road before stopping , plus how full / empty of the usual stuff is in the tank ?

I'd just get the diesel to the fuel rail and see, if it is knackered then it won't start
