Infiniti Fuel Drain


Filling up with Diesel in a Petrol Infiniti is a common error. And its remedy depends upon various things. Assuming you want to find out what you have to do to fix it then stay with me.
Listed here are the most important factors to consider when figuring out whether or not to have the car drained:

  1. Exactly how much Diesel have you put into the Infiniti, bearing in mind that the fuel tank capacity of your Infiniti Q70 is most likely about 80 litres?
    1. A small quantity of Diesel, something like 4 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Q70 will normally not be a massive problem. Experience has proven to us that an amount under 4 litres (5% of the whole fuel tank volume) is often able to be completely diluted through thoroughly topping the remainder of the tank with the appropriate fuel.
      It's highly rare to come across an automobile going through difficulties because of less than 5% wrong fuel contamination. Remember that it is infrequent - certainly not impossible to find. You will discover certain motor vehicles that won't endure any degree of contamination whatsoever.
    2. Somewhere between 4 and 8 litres of Diesel in the Infiniti (from 5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 situation. Our expertise has revealed that as many drivers get away with it as those people who don't. When deciding on whether to risk it and simply fill it up bear in mind that it is exactly like gambling everything on black - you have got a 50/50 possibility of it working out.
    3. Anything more than 8 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Q70 must straightaway be drained seeing as your likelihood of driving with that level of contamination is very likely less than one in fifty - really big odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Infiniti and drove it: Have you observed any kind of performance difficulties ever since putting the wrong fuel in your Q70? In that case, get it removed regardless of the quantity of Diesel or the contamination ratio. Still driving an automobile that is currently beginning to suffer from the effect of wrong fuel contamination can likely be responsible for more damage affecting your fuel system components.
  3. Are you looking for security?
    In that case get it drained. Whatever the contamination percentage, there is inevitably a certain level of threat linked with running a Petrol motor on Petrol contaminated with the wrong fuel. Possible consequences of driving a vehicle on the wrong fuel can include the engine refusing to start, running unevenly, lack of power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, damaged or clogged injectors, and the like. These are some of the most typical Diesel in Petrol signs or symptoms, and if you recognise any of them stop and have it drained asap.

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.
