What if you put sugar in the gas tank?

Sugar in the gas tank will not cause the engine to fail because sugar does not dissolve in gas. It will get pulled thru the gas line and into the fuel filter(s) and depending on how much sugar is in the tank, will plug the fuel filter sooner or later. This will cause the car to stall or not stay running. You can either replace the fuel filters until the sugar is gone or get the car to a mechanic and have the gas tank removed and flushed out. This is not a do-it-yourself project. You could also drive the car to the mechanic and then have the fuel filter replaced while they are flushing the gas tank.

Sugar clogs the screen in the fuel pump pick-up. If it gets past that screen it will clog the fuel filter. Since sugar doesn't dissolve in gasoline, what stops the car is the clogging of the fuel. With enough sugar, the blockage can be instantaneous. The pummeling you will receive for putting sugar in the person's gas tank will follow shortly afterward.

Overnight, the water froze and I was able to drive the car for at least 34 miles the next morning. If you fill your tank with ethanol, you can run the car on around a 80% mix of alcohol and 20% water. It isn't going to give you good performance but it will run.

What to do if sugar is in tank?

If you suspect that someone put sugar in the tank of your car, the best thing to do is to make an appointment to have your filters cleaned at a garage.
