Jaguar Fuel Drain


Filling up with Diesel in a Petrol Jaguar is a regular problem. And its solution depends upon an assortment of factors. Assuming you want to find out what you have to do about this then read on.
Listed here the most crucial factors to think about whenever deciding whether to get a fuel drain:

  1. What level of Diesel have you put in to the Jaguar, taking into consideration that the fuel tank capacity of your Jaguar Daimler is most likely roughly 81 litres?
    1. A small quantity of Diesel, less than 4.05 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Daimler will quite often not necessarily be a massive problem. Experience has taught us that anything less than 4.05 litres (almost 5% of the total fuel tank volume) is sometimes capable of being completely diluted by means of wholly topping up the rest of the tank with Petrol.
      It is extremely rare to come across a car experiencing difficulties with below 5% wrong fuel contamination. Remember that it's infrequent - definitely not impossible to encounter. You can get a few automobiles that won't endure any degree of fuel contamination at all.
    2. In between 4.05 and 8.1 litres of Diesel in the Jaguar (from 5 to 10%) is a 50/50 condition. Our working experience has revealed that as many people get away with this as those people who break down. Any time you're figuring out whether to chance it and simply top it up consider that it is the same as gambling it all on black - you've got a 50/50 possibility of it being ok.
    3. Anything over 8.1 litres of Diesel in your Petrol Daimler ought to promptly be drained seeing as your probability of getting away with this amount of contamination is probably less than one in 50 - truly long odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Jaguar and drove it: Have you noticed any kind of performance issues ever since putting the incorrect fuel in your Daimler? If you have, get it drained irrespective of the quantity of Diesel or even the contamination percentage. Continually driving a vehicle that is already beginning to suffer the effect of wrong fuel contamination will just be responsible for progressively more damage being caused to your fuel system.
  3. Would you like security?
    You should get it removed. Regardless of the contamination ratio, there is always some amount of danger resulting from driving a Petrol vehicle on fuel contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Possible results of driving a vehicle on the wrong fuel can include the engine refusing to start, running unevenly, loss in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or blocked injectors, and so forth. These are several of the commonest Diesel in Petrol warning signs, and if you notice any of them then stop and have it removed 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.
