Rolls-Royce Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol Rolls-Royce is a well-known error. And its solution is based on an assortment of things. In the event that you would like to know what you must do about this then continue reading.
These are the key variables to to consider whenever determining whether or not to have a fuel drain:

  1. How much Diesel did you put into the Rolls-Royce, considering that the fuel capacity of your Rolls-Royce Phantom EWB is probably around 100 litres?
    1. A modest amount of Diesel, as little as 5 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Phantom EWB will more often than not not necessarily be a major problem. Experience has proven to us that anything under 5 litres (which is approximately 5% of the entire fuel tank volume) is generally capable of being adequately diluted by means of completely filling up the tank with the appropriate fuel.
      It's quite rare to find a car having problems with less than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Do not forget that it is very unusual - certainly not impossible to find. You will discover a number of automobiles that don't endure any level of contamination in the slightest.
    2. Somewhere between 5 and 10 litres of Diesel in the Rolls-Royce (5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 condition. Our experience has demonstrated that as many motorists get away with this as those who break down. When you are deciding on whether or not to chance it and basically top it up bear in mind that it is exactly like wagering your car on black - you have got a 50/50 chance of it working out.
    3. Anything above 10 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Phantom EWB really should right away be drained out as your likelihood of getting away with this quantity of contamination is certainly lower than one in fifty - definitely huge odds.
  2. Put some Diesel in a Petrol Rolls-Royce and drove it: Have you noted any performance concerns since putting the wrong fuel in your Phantom EWB? In that case, have it emptied irrespective of the amount of Diesel or the contamination ratio. Continually running a car that is starting to suffer from the effect of fuel contamination can typically lead to even more damage being done to your fuel system.
  3. Are you looking for security?
    You should get it drained. Regardless of contamination ratio, there is inevitably some amount of threat linked with driving a Petrol vehicle on fuel contaminated with Diesel. Probable results of driving a vehicle on the wrong fuel include the engine not starting, running lumpy, decrease in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn or bunged injectors, and the like. These are a few of the commonest Diesel in Petrol signs or symptoms, and in the event that you recognise any of them then cease driving and get it removed as soon as possible.

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.
