Mitsubishi Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol Mitsubishi is a regular error. And its solution hinges on an assortment of things. Assuming you want to know what you ought to do about this then please read on.
Listed here are the most crucial variables to be aware of whenever choosing whether or not to have your car drained:

  1. How much Diesel did you put into the Mitsubishi, keeping in mind that the fuel tank capacity of your Mitsubishi Pajero is probably roughly 71 litres?
    1. A modest quantity of Diesel, something like 3.55 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Pajero will in most situations not really be a significant problem. Experience has shown us that an amount under 3.55 litres (which is close to 5% of the overall fuel tank capacity) is sometimes capable of being completely diluted simply by thoroughly filling the remainder of the tank with the appropriate fuel.
      It is very rare to encounter a vehicle going through issues due to below 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Remember that it is rare - not impossible to encounter. There are actually some cars that don't stand any degree of contamination whatsoever.
    2. In between 3.55 and 7.1 litres of Diesel in the Mitsubishi (5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 situation. Our working experience has proven that as many people get away with it as those who break down. Whenever deciding on whether to chance it and basically top it up recognise that it is very much like wagering your car on black - you will have a 50/50 chance of it working out.
    3. Anything more than 7.1 litres of Diesel in your Petrol Pajero must promptly be drained seeing that your likelihood of succeeding with that amount of contamination is almost certainly lower than one in 50 - genuinely huge odds.
  2. Put some Diesel in a Petrol Mitsubishi and drove it: Have you seen any kind of performance issues as a result of putting the wrong fuel in your Pajero? If that's the case, get it emptied irrespective of the amount of Diesel or even the contamination percentage. Continuing to drive running a car that is beginning to suffer from the effect of fuel contamination will just lead to more harm affecting the fuel system.
  3. Do you need assurance?
    You should get it removed. Whatever the contamination ratio, there is inevitably some extent of threat connected with operating a Petrol vehicle on fuel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Likely final outcomes of driving a vehicle on the wrong fuel can include the motor not starting, running unevenly, decrease in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn or bunged injectors, and so on. These are some of the most common Diesel in Petrol signs and symptoms, and in the event that you observe any of them then stop and get it drained immediately.

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.
