Mitsubishi Fuel Drain


Putting Diesel in a Petrol Mitsubishi is a common mistake to make. And its solution varies according to a variety of factors. In case you want to find out what you need to do about this then continue reading.
Listed below are the most crucial factors to take into consideration when choosing whether or not to get the car drained:

  1. Exactly how much Diesel have you put in to the Mitsubishi, bearing in mind that the fuel tank capacity of your Mitsubishi Space Star 1300 is in most cases approximately 55 litres?
    1. A small quantity of Diesel, as little as 2.75 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Space Star 1300 will quite often not really be a big problem. Experience has taught us that anything less than 2.75 litres (almost 5% of the fuel tank capacity) is sometimes able to be adequately diluted by means of completely filling the tank with the appropriate fuel.
      It's rather unusual to find a vehicle going through problems because of lower than 5% wrong fuel contamination. Keep in mind that it is infrequently found - certainly not impossible to find. You will discover a few motor vehicles that will not endure any quantity of fuel contamination at all.
    2. Between 2.75 and 5.5 litres of Diesel in the Mitsubishi (5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 scenario. Our expertise demonstrates that as many drivers get away with it as those who break down. Whenever you are deciding upon whether to risk it and simply fill it up bear in mind that it is the same as gambling all of it on black - you will have a 50/50 possibility of it working out.
    3. Anything more than 5.5 litres of Diesel in your Petrol Space Star 1300 really should straight away be removed because your likelihood of succeeding with this level of contamination is almost certainly lower than one in fifty - really long odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Mitsubishi and drove it: Have you noted any performance issues ever since putting the bad fuel in your Space Star 1300? If that's the case, have it drained irrespective of the amount of Diesel or the contamination percentage. Proceeding to run driving a motor vehicle that is currently beginning to suffer the consequences of wrong fuel contamination can only cause increasing amounts of damage affecting your fuel system components.
  3. Would you like security?
    You should get it emptied. No matter the contamination ratio, there is inevitably a certain level of risk connected to driving a Petrol motor on Petrol contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Probable consequences of driving on the incorrect fuel normally include the engine not starting, running unevenly, lack of power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or bunged injectors, and so on. These are several of the most frequently seen Diesel in Petrol warning signs, and should you detect any of them then stop driving and have 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.
