Sounds like mine when I put diesel in it last week :lol:

Had it been left for 2 years with petrol in it?

Having just gone through similar processes it may be worth getting someone who knows about fuel injection systems to give it the once over. Apparently when left for long periods the residual petrol evaporates to leave possible crudge which blocks/screws up the injectors and may need blowing out etc.
