Mitsubishi Fuel Drain


Filling up with Diesel in a Petrol Mitsubishi is a well-known error. And exactly what you want to do about it varies according to an assortment of things. Assuming you would like to find out what you should do to sort it out then please read on.
Let us discuss the most important factors to be aware of when choosing whether to get a fuel drain:

  1. Exactly how much Diesel have you put in the Mitsubishi, keeping in mind that the fuel capacity of your Mitsubishi L200 is probably approximately 75 litres?
    1. Hardly any Diesel, less than 3.75 litres of Diesel in a Petrol L200 will most of the time not really be a big problem. Experience has proven to us that anything less than 3.75 litres (5% of the entire fuel tank capacity) is quite often capable of being completely diluted by thoroughly topping up the tank with Petrol.
      It is relatively unusual to encounter a car or truck having issues because of lower than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Keep in mind it's rare - definitely not impossible to encounter. There are actually a number of automobiles that will not stand any level of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Somewhere between 3.75 and 7.5 litres of Diesel in the Mitsubishi (from 5 to 10%) is a 50/50 scenario. Our working experience has confirmed that as many people get away with it as those who don't. Whenever deciding on whether or not to chance it and just simply fill it up recognise that it is very much like wagering your car on black - you have a 50/50 possibility of it being ok.
    3. Anything more than 7.5 litres of Diesel in your Petrol L200 really should straightaway be drained out since your likelihood of succeeding with that amount of contamination is certainly lower than one in 50 - genuinely big odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Mitsubishi and drove it: Have you seen any performance troubles as a result of putting the wrong fuel in the L200? In that case, get it emptied no matter the volume of Diesel or even the contamination ratio. Proceeding to run driving a motor vehicle that is already starting to suffer the effects of fuel contamination can likely cause more harm being done to your fuel system parts.
  3. Are you interested in assurance?
    You should get it drained. Whatever the contamination percentage, there is always some degree of danger linked with operating a Petrol motor on fuel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Probable results of driving a car on the wrong fuel include the engine not starting, running lumpy, decrease in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn out or clogged injectors, and the like. These are some of the most typical Diesel in Petrol signs or symptoms, and if you notice any of them stop driving and get it removed 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.
