:bonk: Someone put deisel instead of gas in the fuel tank. Started the tractor up and it backfired.
Is the engine toast?

Welcome to the forums! You've found a great place.

As to your question, I'd say no, the engine is fine.

Drain the tank and pour in some fresh gas. I may take a little time to get it running, but I think that the oils in diesel fuel actually will do the engine some good, as far as lubrication.
