Toyota Fuel Drain


Putting Diesel in a Petrol Toyota is a well-known mistake to make. And its solution depends on a variety of things. In case you would like to find out what you ought to do to sort it out then continue reading.
Here are the most important factors to take into account when determining whether to have a fuel drain:

  1. Exactly how much Diesel have you put into the Toyota, considering that the fuel capacity of the Toyota Corolla Verso is probably approximately 55 litres?
    1. A modest quantity of Diesel, as little as 2.75 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Corolla Verso will more often than not not necessarily be a huge problem. Experience has taught us that an amount under 2.75 litres (5% of the total fuel tank) is very often capable of being adequately diluted by means of wholly topping the tank with the appropriate fuel.
      It's relatively uncommon to find a motor vehicle suffering from difficulties because of lower than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Bear in mind that it is very rare - certainly not impossible to encounter. You can get a few automobiles that won't endure any degree of fuel contamination in the slightest.
    2. In between 2.75 and 5.5 litres of Diesel in the Toyota (5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 situation. Our working experience has revealed that as many motorists get away with it as those people who don't. Whenever you are deciding upon whether to risk it and just simply top it up consider that it is the same as gambling everything on black - you have a 50/50 chance of it working out.
    3. Anything over 5.5 litres of Diesel in your Petrol Corolla Verso should immediately be drained out as your likelihood of getting away with that level of contamination is probably lower than one in fifty - extremely long odds.
  2. Put some Diesel in a Petrol Toyota and drove it: Have you seen any kind of performance issues after putting the wrong fuel in the Corolla Verso? If so, get it removed no matter the volume of Diesel or even the contamination ratio. Continually driving a vehicle that is already starting to suffer from the consequences of wrong fuel contamination can likely cause progressively more damage affecting your fuel system parts.
  3. Are you interested in assurance?
    Then simply just get it emptied. No matter the contamination ratio, there is always a certain level of threat associated with driving a Petrol engine on Petrol contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Likely final outcomes of driving on the wrong fuel can include the motor refusing to start, running unevenly, decrease in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or blocked injectors, and so forth. These are several of the most frequently seen Diesel in Petrol warning signs, and in the event that you observe any of them stop and get it removed right now.

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.
