Renault Fuel Drain


Filling up with Diesel in a Petrol Renault is a regular mistake to make. And its solution is based on an assortment of things. In case you would like to know what you must do to fix it then keep on reading.
Listed here the key variables to think about whenever deciding on whether or not to have a fuel drain:

  1. How much Diesel have you put in to the Renault, taking into account that the fuel tank capacity of the Renault Grand Modus is most likely roughly 51 litres?
    1. A modest amount of Diesel, less than 2.55 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Grand Modus will typically not necessarily be a significant problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that anything under 2.55 litres (which is about 5% of the whole fuel tank capacity) is frequently capable of being completely diluted simply by wholly topping the remainder of the tank with Petrol.
      It's highly rare to find a car experiencing difficulties because of lower than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Please remember it is unusual - certainly not impossible to find. There are certain vehicles that will not stand any quantity of fuel contamination at all.
    2. Anywhere between 2.55 and 5.1 litres of Diesel in the Renault (5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 condition. Our practical experience has proven that as many people get away with this as those who don't. When deciding upon whether or not to risk it and just simply top it up remember that it is the same as gambling your car on black - you've got a 50/50 chance of it working out.
    3. Anything over 5.1 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Grand Modus should really immediately be drained out seeing as your likelihood of succeeding with that amount of contamination is certainly lower than one in 50 - genuinely long odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Renault and drove it: Have you noted any performance difficulties after putting the wrong fuel in your Grand Modus? If you have, have it removed irrespective of the quantity of Diesel or even the contamination ratio. Continually running an automobile that is currently starting to suffer from the effects of fuel contamination can just cause progressively more harm affecting your fuel system parts.
  3. Are you interested in reassurance?
    You should get it removed. No matter the contamination percentage, there is invariably some extent of danger affiliated with operating a Petrol motor on fuel contaminated with Diesel. Probable final outcomes of driving on the wrong fuel include things like the engine not starting, running lumpy, lack of power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn or bunged injectors, etc. These are a few of the commonest Diesel in Petrol warning signs, and in the event that you observe any of them cease driving and have it drained asap.

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.
