Rolls-Royce Fuel Drain


Putting Diesel in a Petrol Rolls-Royce is a usual error. And exactly what you want to do about it depends upon an assortment of factors. In case you want to know what you have to do about it then read on.
Listed here are the main factors to take into account whenever determining whether to have a fuel drain:

  1. Exactly how much Diesel have you put in to the Rolls-Royce, bearing in mind that the fuel capacity of the Rolls-Royce Ghost EWB is normally about 83 litres?
    1. A tiny amount of Diesel, less than 4.15 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Ghost EWB will usually not be a massive problem. Experience has taught us that quantities under 4.15 litres (which is almost 5% of the overall fuel tank) is often able to be adequately diluted simply by wholly topping the rest of the tank with the right fuel.
      It is quite unusual to find an automobile having problems with below 5% wrong fuel contamination. Bear in mind that it is infrequent - not impossible to find. You will discover certain vehicles that won't endure any amount of contamination in the slightest.
    2. Anywhere between 4.15 and 8.3 litres of Diesel in the Rolls-Royce (5 to 10%) is a 50/50 condition. Our working experience has demonstrated that as many drivers get away with this as those people who break down. When you are deciding upon whether to risk it and just fill it up consider that it is the same thing as gambling it all on black - you have a 50/50 chance of it working.
    3. Anything in excess of 8.3 litres of Diesel in your Petrol Ghost EWB really should right away be drained since your likelihood of driving with this level of contamination is almost certainly below one in 50 - really long odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Rolls-Royce and drove it: Have you noticed any performance problems ever since putting the incorrect fuel in your Ghost EWB? In that case, get it removed regardless of the quantity of Diesel or the contamination percentage. Continually running a car that is beginning to suffer from the consequences of wrong fuel contamination will probably just result in even more damage being done to your fuel system parts.
  3. Would you like peace of mind?
    Simply get it drained. Regardless of contamination percentage, there is inevitably a certain level of risk resulting from driving a Petrol motor on fuel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Possible final outcomes of driving a car on the incorrect fuel normally include the engine not starting, running unevenly, loss of power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn out or bunged injectors, and so forth. These are several of the most frequently seen Diesel in Petrol signs or symptoms, and if you detect any of them stop driving and have 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.
