Mitsubishi Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol Mitsubishi is a fairly typical error. And its solution is based on several factors. In the event that you want to find out what you ought to do about it then stay with me.
These are the most important variables to take into account whenever figuring out whether to get the car drained:

  1. What level of Diesel have you put into the Mitsubishi, taking into consideration that the fuel tank capacity of the Mitsubishi Space Wagon is most likely approximately 63 litres?
    1. A small quantity of Diesel, less than 3.15 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Space Wagon will most of the time not be a big problem. Experience has shown us that quantities under 3.15 litres (about 5% of the total fuel tank capacity) is usually able to be adequately diluted simply by totally filling up the tank with the correct fuel.
      It's pretty uncommon to encounter a motor vehicle having issues because of under 5% wrong fuel contamination. Remember that it's infrequent - definitely not impossible to encounter. There are a number of automobiles that don't stand any degree of fuel contamination at all.
    2. Anywhere between 3.15 and 6.3 litres of Diesel in the Mitsubishi (from 5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 scenario. Our practical experience has revealed that as many drivers get away with this as those who don't. When figuring out whether or not to risk it and just top it up consider that it is the same thing as betting everything on black - you've got a 50/50 chance of it working.
    3. Anything above 6.3 litres of Diesel in your Petrol Space Wagon must promptly be removed because your likelihood of driving with that level of contamination is in all likelihood lower than one in fifty - really long odds.
  2. Put some Diesel in a Petrol Mitsubishi and drove it: Have you noticed any kind of performance troubles as a result of putting the bad fuel in the Space Wagon? If so, get it drained regardless of the quantity of Diesel or even the contamination ratio. Continuing to run running an automobile that is now beginning to suffer from the effect of wrong fuel contamination can typically cause progressively more damage affecting your fuel system parts.
  3. Are you looking for assurance?
    Then get it emptied. Whatever the contamination percentage, there is always some degree of danger in connection with running a Petrol motor on fuel contaminated with Diesel. Likely implications of driving on the wrong fuel include the motor refusing to start, running unevenly, losing power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn out or clogged 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 cease driving and get it drained right away.

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.
