Hello, do not drive the vehicle any further or run the engine as you risk pump and injector damage. The correct procedure is to drain the fuel tank, blow the fuel lines out and replace the fuel filter. The petrol in the system will cause high wear on the fuel components as it does not have any lubricating properties.
