Infiniti Fuel Drain


Putting Diesel in a Petrol Infiniti is a regular error. And exactly what you have to do about it is determined by various things. In the event that you would like to find out what you should do to fix it then continue reading.
Listed here are the most important factors to take into consideration when determining whether to get a fuel drain:

  1. What amount of Diesel have you put in the Infiniti, keeping in mind that the fuel tank capacity of the Infiniti Fx37 is in most cases roughly 90 litres?
    1. A tiny quantity of Diesel, as little as 4.5 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Fx37 will quite often not necessarily be a significant problem. Experience has shown us that anything under 4.5 litres (which is 5% of the entire fuel tank capacity) is often able to be adequately diluted by totally topping up the remainder of the tank with the right fuel.
      It's very unusual to encounter an automobile experiencing problems due to lower than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Remember that it is very unusual - not impossible to find. There are actually a number of cars that don't endure any level of fuel contamination at all.
    2. Between 4.5 and 9 litres of Diesel in the Infiniti (from 5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 condition. Our working experience has shown that as many drivers get away with this as those who break down. Any time you are deciding whether to chance it and just simply top it up bear in mind that it is just like gambling all of it on black - you have a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything in excess of 9 litres of Diesel in your Petrol Fx37 should immediately be drained seeing as your likelihood of getting away with this amount of contamination is in all likelihood below one in 50 - definitely long odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Infiniti and drove it: Have you seen any kind of performance issues after putting the bad fuel in your Fx37? In that case, get it emptied no matter the quantity of Diesel or even the contamination ratio. Continually driving a car that is already beginning to suffer from the effects of fuel contamination will probably just cause more damage being caused to the fuel system parts.
  3. Are you looking for assurance?
    Then simply just get it removed. Whatever the contamination ratio, there is inevitably some amount of danger associated with driving a Petrol vehicle on Petrol contaminated with Diesel. Likely results of driving a vehicle on the incorrect fuel can include the motor not starting, running lumpy, reduced power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or bunged injectors, and the like. These are a few of the commonest Diesel in Petrol signs or symptoms, and should you detect any of them stop and have it drained right now.

Diesel in Petrol Questions

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.
