Does anyone know if there is a way to remove red diesel residue from a plastic fuel can that I want to reuse for white diesel.
I wondered if a swill out with thinners might do the trick?
But is it necessary?
Thanks.

There are TWO 'dies' in Red Diesel ... Red Marker and Yellow Detector.

Both are persistent and claims of Fullers Earth etc as removing one or other are old Wives Tales ...

For you - stained plastic ? Ignore the staining as its virtually impossible to remove .. maybe acid wash - but then you are getting into dangerous ground.

Seriously - if worried about some authority testing your 'white' and finding trace of Red .. just show the can !!

Thinners will not do the job.
