    I'm new here but I need help. I have a 2008 Tacoma and yesterday 2nd Nov. I poured the fuel from my Harley in it's fuel tank (not wanting to just throw the fuel out) only about 3 gallons. Then I drove about a block away and the Tacoma died. I thought crap fuel but others think it could be failed fuel pump. Coincidence? Any thoughts..?

    I vote gas. Go get some fresh from the gas station until you dilute that shit. You should be fine.
