Infiniti Fuel Drain


Putting Diesel in a Petrol Infiniti is a very common problem. And its solution hinges on an assortment of factors. In case you want to know what it is best to do about it then please read on.
These are the most important variables to think about when making a decision whether or not to have it drained:

  1. Exactly how much Diesel have you put in to the Infiniti, taking into consideration that the fuel capacity of the Infiniti Q60 is in most cases around 80 litres?
    1. Hardly any Diesel, as little as 4 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Q60 will more often than not not be a massive problem. Experience has shown us that anything under 4 litres (roughly 5% of the whole fuel tank) is very often capable of being adequately diluted by means of entirely filling the rest of the tank with the appropriate fuel.
      It is very unusual to encounter a vehicle experiencing issues because of less than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Keep in mind that it is rare - definitely not impossible to encounter. You will discover a number of automobiles that don't endure any level of contamination in the slightest.
    2. Anywhere between 4 and 8 litres of Diesel in the Infiniti (5 to 10%) is a 50/50 condition. Our expertise has shown that as many people get away with it as all those who break down. Whenever you are deciding upon whether or not to risk it and just top it up recognise that it is exactly like wagering it all on black - you have got a 50/50 chance of it working.
    3. Anything over 8 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Q60 should really straight away be drained out as your probability of succeeding with this amount of contamination is in all likelihood below one in 50 - truly long odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Infiniti and drove it: Have you detected any kind of performance difficulties since putting the wrong fuel in the Q60? If you have, get it removed regardless of the amount of Diesel or even the contamination percentage. Continuing to run running a car that is currently beginning to suffer from the effect of fuel contamination will definitely lead to more and more damage affecting the fuel system parts.
  3. Do you want peace of mind?
    You should get it removed. Regardless of contamination percentage, there is always some degree of danger caused by operating a Petrol motor on Petrol contaminated with Diesel. Possible final outcomes of driving on the wrong fuel can include the motor not starting, running unevenly, lack of power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn or blocked injectors, and so on. These are several of the commonest Diesel in Petrol signs and symptoms, and should you observe any of them stop driving and get it drained right away.

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.
