Aston Martin Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol Aston Martin is a regular mistake to make. And its remedy is determined by various things. In the event that you would like to find out what to do about it then continue reading.
Listed here are the main variables to be aware of whenever deciding on whether to get it drained:

  1. Exactly how much Diesel did you put in to the Aston Martin, bearing in mind that the fuel capacity of the Aston Martin Lagonda Saloon is usually about 113 litres?
    1. Hardly any Diesel, as little as 5.65 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Lagonda Saloon will normally not necessarily be a huge problem. Experience has shown us that an amount under 5.65 litres (about 5% of the fuel tank volume) is quite often capable of being sufficiently diluted by means of wholly topping up the rest of the tank with Petrol.
      It's pretty unusual to encounter a car or truck having difficulties due to under 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Keep in mind it is very unusual - certainly not impossible to encounter. There are actually a number of cars that won't stand any level of fuel contamination in the slightest.
    2. Somewhere between 5.65 and 11.3 litres of Diesel in the Aston Martin (5 to 10%) is a 50/50 condition. Our practical experience has shown us that as many people get away with this as those who don't. Whenever you are trying to decide whether to chance it and basically fill it up remember that it is the same thing as wagering your car on black - you have got a 50/50 chance of it working out.
    3. Anything above 11.3 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Lagonda Saloon should really straightaway be drained because your likelihood of driving with this quantity of contamination is probably lower than one in 50 - extremely long odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Aston Martin and drove it: Have you observed any performance troubles since putting the bad fuel in your Lagonda Saloon? If so, have it emptied regardless of the volume of Diesel or the contamination percentage. Continuing to run driving an automobile that is starting to suffer from the effects of fuel contamination will probably typically be responsible for increasing amounts of damage affecting the fuel system parts.
  3. Are you looking for security?
    Then simply just get it removed. Regardless of the contamination percentage, there is always some extent of risk resulting from driving a Petrol vehicle on fuel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Possible implications of driving on the incorrect fuel can include the motor not starting, running lumpy, loss of power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn out or bunged injectors, and so forth. These are several of the most frequently seen Diesel in Petrol symptoms, and in the event that you recognise any of them then cease driving and have it removed immediately.

Diesel in Petrol FAQs

When someone has put Diesel in a Petrol car they have a few very common questions. So we have compiled a list of the most Frequently Asked Questions for you

I put Diesel in a Petrol car and drove it. What do I do?


Turn off the car as soon as possible and call us. Continuing to run a vehicle on the wrong fuel can potentially damage it. We will be able to give you advice and assistance based on your circumstances

Will driving a Petrol car on Diesel cause damage to it?


It can. However, if the problem is caught and remedied quickly the risks will be minimal. Of the 1,500 vehicles we attend every month, less than 0.5% have suffered and substantial damage requiring parts replacement.

How much Diesel can I get away with in a Petrol car?


The safe answer is none. However you might be able to get away with a very low contamination ratio. That being said, we always highly recommend draining anything over a 5% contamination ratio asap.

I know about petrol in diesel, but what about Super Unleaded?


Putting Super Unleaded, or Shell V-Power, BP Ultimate Unleaded, etc, will have the exact same effect as putting regular unleaded petrol in your diesel car and will need to be drained out and flushed.

Will getting you to do a fuel drain void my warranty?


No! The EU Block Exemption Regulations clearly state that "the work can be carried out by as long as that garage uses manufacturer approved parts and correctly follows the manufacturer's service schedule."

Can I top it up with Petrol and add some 2-stroke oil?


This might work on some vehicles in some cases, but in the majority on instances it won't and you risk damaging the Lambda sensors as well as fuel pump and injectors, just as a regular misfuel.
