Infiniti Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol Infiniti is a very common problem. And its solution is based on a variety of things. Assuming you would like to know what you should do to sort it out then stay with me.
Right here are the main factors to to consider whenever figuring out whether or not to have a fuel drain:

  1. How much Diesel did you put into the Infiniti, taking into account that the fuel capacity of your Infiniti Ex37 is most likely about 80 litres?
    1. Hardly any Diesel, as little as 4 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Ex37 will most of the time not really be a major problem. Experience has shown us that anything under 4 litres (which is approximately 5% of the total fuel tank capacity) is quite often capable of being sufficiently diluted by means of wholly filling up the rest of the tank with the appropriate fuel.
      It is quite uncommon to find a car or truck having difficulties with less than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Please remember it is infrequent - definitely not impossible to encounter. There are actually a few automobiles that will not stand any quantity of contamination at all.
    2. In between 4 and 8 litres of Diesel in the Infiniti (from 5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 condition. Our working experience has proven that as many drivers get away with this as those who break down. When deciding on whether to risk it and basically fill it up remember that it is exactly like gambling it all on black - you've got a 50/50 possibility of it working out.
    3. Anything above 8 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Ex37 must as soon as possible be drained since your probability of succeeding with this amount of contamination is undoubtedly lower than one in fifty - extremely long odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Infiniti and drove it: Have you noted any performance difficulties after putting the wrong fuel in the Ex37? If so, have it removed irrespective of the volume of Diesel or the contamination percentage. Continually driving a vehicle that is now beginning to suffer the consequences of wrong fuel contamination will probably only lead to even more damage affecting the fuel system parts.
  3. Do you want peace of mind?
    In that case get it drained. Regardless of contamination percentage, there is invariably some degree of risk associated with running a Petrol motor on fuel contaminated with Diesel. Likely final outcomes of driving on the incorrect fuel normally include the motor not starting, running lumpy, loss in power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn or clogged injectors, and the like. These are some of the commonest Diesel in Petrol warning signs, and in the event that you notice any of them then stop driving and get it removed as soon as possible.

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.
