Nissan Fuel Drain


Putting Diesel in a Petrol Nissan is a usual error. And its remedy is based on an assortment of things. In the event that you would like to find out what to do about this then continue reading.
Here are the key variables to keep in mind whenever determining whether or not to have a fuel drain:

  1. Exactly how much Diesel have you put in the Nissan, considering that the fuel tank capacity of the Nissan GT-R is normally roughly 74 litres?
    1. A tiny amount of Diesel, as little as 3.7 litres of Diesel in a Petrol GT-R will generally not really be a significant problem. Experience has shown us that anything less than 3.7 litres (almost 5% of the total fuel tank capacity) is sometimes capable of being adequately diluted by means of thoroughly filling up the tank with Petrol.
      It's highly rare to encounter a car or truck suffering from issues due to under 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Please remember it's unusual - definitely not impossible to encounter. You will discover certain motor vehicles that will not stand any amount of contamination at all.
    2. Somewhere between 3.7 and 7.4 litres of Diesel in the Nissan (from 5 to 10%) is a 50/50 scenario. Our working experience has revealed that as many drivers get away with it as all those who don't. Any time you're deciding on whether to chance it and just top it up remember that it is exactly like wagering all of it on black - you've got a 50/50 possibility of it working out.
    3. Anything over 7.4 litres of Diesel in a Petrol GT-R should really as soon as possible be drained out because your probability of succeeding with that level of contamination is almost certainly below one in fifty - truly big odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Nissan and drove it: Have you seen any kind of performance concerns since putting the bad fuel in the GT-R? If so, have it drained irrespective of the quantity of Diesel or the contamination ratio. Continually running a car that is starting to suffer the effects of fuel contamination can likely cause increasing amounts of harm being done to your fuel system components.
  3. Would you like security?
    Simply get it drained. Regardless of the contamination percentage, there is always some degree of danger caused by driving a Petrol motor on fuel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Possible results of driving on the wrong fuel normally include the motor refusing to start, running unevenly, losing power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or blocked injectors, and the like. These are a few of the most typical Diesel in Petrol warning signs, and in the event that you notice any of them stop and have it removed 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.
