    I agree and as I mentioned, and will take very little time, put some tractor fuel in a glass container and check the outcome. Being a stand alone pump is good, but not a guarantee. At least it could confirm there is no gas in the mix.

    I'm not aware of how the electronics of Booty work or what they do but do suspect they could be your problem.

    A service Tech that is not up to date and does not have proper access to computer aided diagnostics may be a little challenged.

    I have encountered gas being mixed with diesel. Mistakes happen at the fill stations by both rookie and professionals... Same thing happens as full service stations. My buddy brought his diesel tractor over to a full service station on a trailer and the boys thought it ran on gas, so they filled it on up with 12 gallons of gas. To make matters worse, the gas pumps were those gas/diesel combos with two pump handles. I bet that could get costly after filling a diesel truck up with gas. Luckily my buddy got them to get a couple containers out, and he drained the fuel out right at the station and flush it with diesel to make sure there was no gas left. Now if he fills it on the trailer, he takes it to a self service.

    I'll give you my take on it. Gas in the diesel, possible but I say the dealer is full of crap. They are either saying that to put the blame on you or are grasping at straws. I agree, probably something electronic.

    A few years back a local Chevron station had a delivery of diesel dumped in one of their gas tanks. The local mechanics got a lot of work from that mistake. My only point is that mistakes do happen at that level. I hope you get the issue solved.

    could anyone fully describe the damage that might be done to a compression ignition engine that "sputters and stalls" due to gasoline mixed into the fuel?

    Seems like a witch hunt based on innocence* to me. * i.e. No practical experience.

    Damage is done to the FIP due to lack of lubrication. Diesel is an 'oil' and contains an 'upper cylinder lubricant' component. Petrol (Gas) is a more highly refined 'spirit' and too dry for the close tolerance components in the FIP.

    I live in South Georgia. The Dealer that I bought the tractor from is in Statesboro, Ga. and had some issues with kubota and Dealership issues. They no longer sell Kubota. A new Dealership then opened in Stateboro. Low Country Kubota. I've had some health issues that prevented me from doing alot around our little homestead. The tractor didn't get a lot of use this year. It was been used for things like mowing grass, picking up debris and pushing up our burn piles. Wanted to bushhog the pastures, but the quail have been nesting and we don't want to bother them. The thing with the fuel. Last fuel I bought was May 1st. 10 gallons. It's the same tank of diesel that was in the tractor Aug 1st when they replaced the hood and checked the tractor over and proclaimed everything OK. I'm going to call the Kubota Customer line and ask for an update this afternoon.

    I am no expert to the bx, but does it not have multiple "safeties" that could be malfunctioning? The main one that comes to mind is a seat occupant switch then perhaps a HST pedal or Neutral Safety Switch. The other one would be a simple ground wire that could be making intermittent contact which causes the display fuse to eventually blow and could cause other electrical issues that could cause fuel to shut off as part of the "safety" system.

    My second guess would be water.

    Good Luck.
