    Left tank was filled first. I don’t think it is coolant.

    Wonder if maybe you picked up some crap on the bottom of the storage tank?

    Might be worth draining or siphoning out that crap and see if it comes back?

    Change your fuel filter before getting carried away worried about other things

    This is were having a shutoff valve on each tank like all the older trucks with the crossover had was a plus. You could shutdown the clean tank and isolate it before the contamination mixes into both. If you keep running the engine it will eventually mix and the other tank will be needing to be siphoned too.
    I’m thinking like @AModelCat that crud was pumped into the left tank from the storage tank or the guts of that fuel pump on the island are starting to fail.

    If they truely have a problem with that pump I bet you go back within a day or two and find a orange barrel in front of that stall and a red bag over the pump handle. Lol!

    Did someone get mad and dump pee jugs in tank?? I don’t think it would transfer because it would have to go through filter..
