Infiniti Fuel Drain


Putting Diesel in a Petrol Infiniti is a fairly typical mistake. And its remedy hinges on various things. If perhaps you want to know what to do about this then stay with me.
Let us discuss the most important variables to take into consideration whenever determining whether or not to get a fuel drain:

  1. What amount of Diesel have you put in to the Infiniti, taking into consideration that the fuel tank capacity of your Infiniti Q50 Hybrid is probably approximately 70 litres?
    1. A small quantity of Diesel, less than 3.5 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Q50 Hybrid will usually not really be a big problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that anything less than 3.5 litres (approximately 5% of the fuel tank capacity) is generally capable of being sufficiently diluted by completely topping up the tank with the right fuel.
      It's rather uncommon to find a car or truck having issues with under 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Do not forget that it is infrequently found - definitely not impossible to find. You can get certain motor vehicles that don't stand any level of contamination in the slightest.
    2. In between 3.5 and 7 litres of Diesel in the Infiniti (5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 condition. Our expertise has shown that as many motorists get away with it as those who break down. Any time you're deciding upon whether or not to risk it and simply top it up bear in mind that it is very much like wagering everything on black - you will have a 50/50 possibility of it working.
    3. Anything over 7 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Q50 Hybrid really should promptly be drained out seeing as your probability of getting away with that amount of contamination is more than likely less than one in 50 - extremely long odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Infiniti and drove it: Have you noticed any kind of performance problems ever since putting the wrong fuel in the Q50 Hybrid? If you have, get it drained irrespective of the volume of Diesel or even the contamination ratio. Continually running a vehicle that is now beginning to suffer from the effect of fuel contamination will definitely bring about even more harm affecting your fuel system parts.
  3. Would you like security?
    In that case get it drained. Whatever the contamination ratio, there is invariably a certain level of threat caused by driving a Petrol vehicle on Petrol contaminated with Diesel. Probable implications of driving on the wrong fuel normally include the engine refusing to start, running lumpy, losing power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, damaged or blocked injectors, and so forth. These are several of the most frequently seen Diesel in Petrol signs and symptoms, and should you observe any of them then cease driving and get it drained 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.
