Mitsubishi Fuel Drain


Filling up with Diesel in a Petrol Mitsubishi is a usual error. And its remedy depends on several things. In case you want to know what you must do to sort it out then continue reading.
Listed here are the most important factors to be aware of when choosing whether to have it drained:

  1. How much Diesel have you put into the Mitsubishi, keeping in mind that the fuel capacity of the Mitsubishi Sigma is probably approximately 72 litres?
    1. A small quantity of Diesel, less than 3.6 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Sigma will quite often not be a huge problem. Experience has proven to us that an amount under 3.6 litres (which is almost 5% of the overall fuel tank volume) is oftentimes able to be sufficiently diluted simply by completely topping the remainder of the tank with Petrol.
      It's pretty unusual to find a vehicle suffering from issues with below 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Be aware that it is very infrequent - certainly not impossible to encounter. There are a few automobiles that will not stand any quantity of fuel contamination in the slightest.
    2. In between 3.6 and 7.2 litres of Diesel in the Mitsubishi (from 5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 situation. Our working experience has shown that as many motorists get away with it as those people who break down. When deciding whether or not to risk it and just simply top it up consider that it is much like betting it all on black - you will have a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything more than 7.2 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Sigma should straight away be removed seeing that your probability of driving with this quantity of contamination is very likely less than one in 50 - extremely big odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Mitsubishi and drove it: Have you noticed any kind of performance concerns since putting the bad fuel in your Sigma? If that's the case, have it drained irrespective of the volume of Diesel or even the contamination percentage. Continuing to drive running a motor vehicle that is currently starting to suffer from the effects of wrong fuel contamination will only bring about progressively more damage affecting the fuel system parts.
  3. Would you like assurance?
    Then get it emptied. Whatever the contamination ratio, there is inevitably some extent of threat connected to operating a Petrol vehicle on fuel contaminated with Diesel. Possible implications of driving a car on the incorrect fuel include things like the engine refusing to start, running lumpy, loss of power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn or clogged injectors, etc. These are a few of the commonest Diesel in Petrol signs and symptoms, and if 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.
