You will need to flush the entire fuel system off the car. I would go and purchase two fuel filters. Replace the old one and then. Remove the intake so that you can watch the injectors spray and catch the cleaning fluid. Now put some diesel or kero on the tank and run the fuel pump. Run at least a few litres through the entire system. Give the petrol tank a good flush out. Replace the filter again and reinstall everything. Fill with petrol and try to start.

The chlorine with react and form an oxide and clog up the system. This is what you need to get rid of.

cheers

as i know there are fuel tank drain kits (car performance chips) that you can rely on. I wasn't particularly familiar with solving fuel tank solutions, in either way maybe you take your car for a mechanic check as well.

I think it would be easier to just change it all, your fuel rail and reg,injectors,fuel filter, maybe even your pump,sure you could pick that stuff up cheap or ask around if anyone has those parts,it would be peice of mind anyway.
