    Full of / with

    Hello,

    I would like to know if the adjective "full" can go together with the preposition "with", for example:

    The shelf is full of books - the shelf is full with books.

    The shelf is full of dirt - The shelf is full with dirt.


    Thank you for your help.

    I wouldn't use it.

    You could say something like "the tank was filled with diesel fuel."
