pepsi would be heavier than gasoline, thereby sitting at the bottom of the tank and staying there. gas is pulled more or less from the bottom of the tank. what's ole snopes have to say about straight pepsi being pulled into and through an engine? even if replacing the injectors is all it took (somehow i think your plugs would short and have to be replaced along with wires), injectors get kinda expensive when you have to replace every one "a few times".
The fuel injection pump delivers 30 to 35 PSI to the fuel injectors and what is not used and sprayed into the engine is returned to the fuel tank by a fuel return line. The fuel is constantly moving through the lines to the engine and back to the fuel tank.
It depends on how much gas and what you mean by bad. If you have very little fuel in the tank and you mean it is just old gas, then pour in a can of Seafoam or Techron fuel treatment. If you think ...

Would partially run using pepsi bottle with gas slowly poured into carb. Took off carb, soaked it in hot water and other things more volitile. Carb kit, and cleaned fuel pump and drained gas tank. Got it running and used probably 40 gas line filters to keep stuff from getting to carb, or so I thought.
Depending on the source, some say that sugar in a gas tank will not cause any engine problems. Others say you'll need to replace the engine. That is quite a difference of opinion. I guess a why would be in order! Apparently since sugar will not dissolve in gas, the sugar will simply plug up the fuel filters. However, once the sugar has dissolved in water (condensation in the tank) or it is ...
