Infiniti Fuel Drain


Filling up with Diesel in a Petrol Infiniti is a regular error. And exactly what you have to do about it depends upon a few things. If you want to find out what you have to do about this then stay with me.
Let us discuss the most important variables to think about whenever figuring out whether or not to have it drained:

  1. What amount of Diesel have you put in the Infiniti, bearing in mind that the fuel tank capacity of the Infiniti G37 AWD is normally roughly 80 litres?
    1. Hardly any Diesel, less than 4 litres of Diesel in a Petrol G37 AWD will usually not be a massive problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that an amount under 4 litres (5% of the total fuel tank capacity) is very often capable of being adequately diluted by thoroughly filling the rest of the tank with Petrol.
      It's pretty unusual to encounter a vehicle going through problems due to below 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Be aware that it is very infrequently found - certainly not impossible to find. You can get a few motor vehicles that will not endure any level of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Anywhere between 4 and 8 litres of Diesel in the Infiniti (5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 situation. Our experience has shown that as many people get away with it as all those who break down. Whenever you are figuring out whether to risk it and just simply top it up bear in mind that it is exactly like wagering it all on black - you have got a 50/50 possibility of it working out.
    3. Anything more than 8 litres of Diesel in your Petrol G37 AWD really should right away be drained out as your likelihood of succeeding with this level of contamination is probably below one in 50 - truly long odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Infiniti and drove it: Have you seen any kind of performance troubles ever since putting the wrong fuel in your G37 AWD? If that's the case, have it drained regardless of the amount of Diesel or the contamination percentage. Continuing to drive driving a vehicle that is now starting to suffer from the effect of wrong fuel contamination can definitely bring about more and more damage being caused to the fuel system.
  3. Do you need assurance?
    Then get it emptied. No matter the contamination ratio, there is inevitably a certain level of risk affiliated with operating a Petrol engine on Petrol contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Probable results of driving a vehicle on the wrong fuel include things like the motor refusing to start, running lumpy, reduced power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn out or bunged injectors, and so forth. These are several of the most common Diesel in Petrol warning signs, and if you recognise any of them then stop and get it removed asap.

Do not simply get any jack-of-all-trades to attend your automobile. We are Infiniti experts and have the certification and knowledge required to make certain you are back on the road with minimal hassle or worry.

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.
