Rover Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol Rover is a usual problem. And exactly what you have to do about it varies according to an assortment of things. Assuming you want to know what it is best to do to fix it then read on.
Listed here the main variables to be aware of when deciding whether to get a fuel drain:

  1. Exactly how much Diesel have you put in the Rover, bearing in mind that the fuel tank capacity of your Rover 620 i is in most cases approximately 65 litres?
    1. A modest quantity of Diesel, something like 3.25 litres of Diesel in a Petrol 620 i will generally not really be a major problem. Experience has shown us that an amount less than 3.25 litres (which is almost 5% of the entire fuel tank capacity) is generally able to be sufficiently diluted by means of wholly filling the rest of the tank with the appropriate fuel.
      It's extremely rare to come across a car or truck going through issues because of under 5% wrong fuel contamination. Do not forget that it's uncommon - certainly not impossible to find. There are certain motor vehicles that don't endure any amount of contamination at all.
    2. In between 3.25 and 6.5 litres of Diesel in the Rover (5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 condition. Our experience has confirmed that as many people get away with this as all those who break down. Any time you are figuring out whether to risk it and simply top it up consider that it is the same thing as betting all of it on black - you've got a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything above 6.5 litres of Diesel in your Petrol 620 i really should immediately be removed seeing as your likelihood of getting away with this quantity of contamination is almost certainly less than one in 50 - truly big odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Rover and drove it: Have you seen any performance concerns after putting the wrong fuel in the 620 i? If that's the case, have it drained regardless of the quantity of Diesel or even the contamination percentage. Proceeding to drive driving an automobile that is now starting to suffer the effects of wrong fuel contamination will probably definitely bring about more and more damage affecting your fuel system parts.
  3. Do you need security?
    Simply get it emptied. Whatever the contamination percentage, there is always a certain level of danger linked with operating a Petrol vehicle on fuel contaminated with Diesel. Likely outcomes of driving a car on the incorrect fuel can include the motor not starting, running unevenly, decrease in power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn or blocked injectors, etc. These are some of the most common Diesel in Petrol symptoms, and in the event that you detect any of them stop and have it drained immediately.

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.
