Renault Fuel Drain


Putting Diesel in a Petrol Renault is a usual mistake. And its remedy depends upon a few factors. In case you want to find out what you must do about this then keep reading.
Listed below are the main factors to to consider whenever deciding whether or not to get your car drained:

  1. What amount of Diesel did you put in to the Renault, taking into account that the fuel capacity of your Renault Kadjar ENERGY Tce is normally approximately 55 litres?
    1. A modest quantity of Diesel, less than 2.75 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Kadjar ENERGY Tce will typically not necessarily be a significant problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that quantities under 2.75 litres (which is approximately 5% of the fuel tank capacity) is frequently capable of being adequately diluted through thoroughly topping the remainder of the tank with the appropriate fuel.
      It is rather rare to encounter a car or truck suffering from problems because of less than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Do not forget that it is rare - definitely not impossible to find. There are some cars that won't stand any quantity of contamination whatsoever.
    2. Between 2.75 and 5.5 litres of Diesel in the Renault (5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 condition. Our working experience has shown us that as many people get away with it as those who break down. When you are deciding upon whether to chance it and just fill it up consider that it is exactly like betting your car on black - you have got a 50/50 chance of it working.
    3. Anything more than 5.5 litres of Diesel in your Petrol Kadjar ENERGY Tce should really promptly be drained out since your probability of succeeding with that amount of contamination is more than likely below one in 50 - extremely huge odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Renault and drove it: Have you noted any performance concerns after putting the incorrect fuel in the Kadjar ENERGY Tce? If so, get it removed regardless of the amount of Diesel or the contamination percentage. Proceeding to drive driving an automobile that is currently starting to suffer the effects of fuel contamination can likely cause more harm affecting the fuel system parts.
  3. Would you like peace of mind?
    Simply get it removed. No matter the contamination percentage, there is invariably some degree of risk linked with operating a Petrol vehicle on fuel contaminated with Diesel. Likely implications of driving a vehicle on the wrong fuel normally include the motor refusing to start, running lumpy, reduced power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, damaged or clogged injectors, and the like. These are several of the most typical Diesel in Petrol signs and symptoms, and if you recognise any of them stop and have it drained right away.

Diesel in Petrol FAQs

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.
