Lexus Fuel Drain


Putting Diesel in a Petrol Lexus is a fairly typical problem. And what you should do about it varies according to a few things. If perhaps you want to know what you must do to sort it out then keep reading.
Right here are the most crucial factors to to consider when making a decision whether or not to have a fuel drain:

  1. How much Diesel have you put in the Lexus, keeping in mind that the fuel tank capacity of your Lexus GS 300 T3 is usually about 80 litres?
    1. Hardly any Diesel, as little as 4 litres of Diesel in a Petrol GS 300 T3 will usually not necessarily be a major problem. Experience has shown us that anything under 4 litres (about 5% of the overall fuel tank) is generally able to be sufficiently diluted simply by thoroughly topping up the remainder of the tank with the right fuel.
      It's extremely uncommon to come across a car or truck experiencing issues due to lower than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Keep in mind it's uncommon - in no way impossible to find. You will discover a few vehicles that will not stand any level of fuel contamination at all.
    2. Anywhere between 4 and 8 litres of Diesel in the Lexus (from 5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 situation. Our working experience has shown us that as many motorists get away with this as those who don't. Any time you are deciding whether to risk it and simply fill it up bear in mind that it is exactly like betting it all on black - you have a 50/50 chance of it working out.
    3. Anything above 8 litres of Diesel in your Petrol GS 300 T3 should really immediately be drained out since your likelihood of succeeding with this amount of contamination is undoubtedly less than one in 50 - really huge odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Lexus and drove it: Have you noticed any kind of performance troubles as a result of putting the wrong fuel in the GS 300 T3? If you have, have it removed no matter the volume of Diesel or even the contamination ratio. Continuing to drive running an automobile that is beginning to suffer from the effect of wrong fuel contamination will probably only lead to progressively more harm affecting the fuel system components.
  3. Are you interested in security?
    Simply get it emptied. Whatever the contamination percentage, there is invariably some amount of danger connected to operating a Petrol vehicle on Petrol contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Likely outcomes of driving a vehicle on the wrong fuel normally include the engine not starting, running lumpy, losing power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn or blocked injectors, etc. These are several of the most frequently seen Diesel in Petrol symptoms, and if you recognise any of them then stop and get it removed right now.

Stay away from having any general so-and-so to attend your vehicle. We are Lexus specialists and have got the skills and working experience needed to ensure you get back on the road with no 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.
