Toyota Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol Toyota is a regular mistake to make. And its remedy is dependent upon a few things. Assuming you would like to know what it is advisable to do to fix it then continue reading.
Listed here are the most important variables to take into account when figuring out whether to have your car drained:

  1. How much Diesel did you put into the Toyota, keeping in mind that the fuel capacity of the Toyota Supra is most likely around 80 litres?
    1. A modest quantity of Diesel, something like 4 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Supra will typically not really be a big problem. Experience has shown us that quantities less than 4 litres (which is almost 5% of the overall fuel tank volume) is sometimes able to be completely diluted by thoroughly topping the remainder of the tank with the right fuel.
      It's very rare to come across a car or truck going through issues due to less than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Keep in mind that it is very rare - in no way impossible to find. You will discover a few cars that won't stand any degree of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Somewhere between 4 and 8 litres of Diesel in the Toyota (from 5 to 10%) is a 50/50 scenario. Our experience has shown us that as many motorists get away with this as all those who don't. Any time you are deciding upon whether to chance it and simply top it up bear in mind that it is very much like gambling all of it on black - you have got a 50/50 chance of it working out.
    3. Anything above 8 litres of Diesel in your Petrol Supra should straightaway be removed seeing that your likelihood of getting away with this level of contamination is very likely below one in 50 - truly long odds.
  2. Put Diesel in a Petrol Toyota and drove it: Have you spotted any kind of performance concerns since putting the bad fuel in your Supra? If so, have it removed no matter the volume of Diesel or even the contamination ratio. Still driving an automobile that is now starting to suffer the consequences of fuel contamination will probably typically end up in more harm being caused to your fuel system.
  3. Do you need security?
    You should get it emptied. No matter the contamination ratio, there is always some extent of threat connected to running a Petrol engine on Petrol contaminated with Diesel. Possible results of driving a car on the wrong fuel normally include the engine not starting, running unevenly, losing power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn or blocked injectors, and the like. These are some of the commonest Diesel in Petrol signs or symptoms, and should you recognise any of them then cease driving and get 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.
