Toyota Fuel Drain


Filling Diesel in a Petrol Toyota is a usual mistake. And what you should do about it varies according to several factors. If perhaps you would like to know what you must do about this then stay with me.
Here are the most important factors to take into consideration whenever determining whether to have a fuel drain:

  1. What amount of Diesel did you put in to the Toyota, taking into account that the fuel tank capacity of your Toyota Urban Cruiser is normally around 42 litres?
    1. A modest quantity of Diesel, something like 2.1 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Urban Cruiser will more often than not not necessarily be a significant problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that quantities under 2.1 litres (close to 5% of the entire fuel tank volume) is very often capable of being sufficiently diluted simply by totally filling up the tank with the right fuel.
      It is extremely uncommon to find a motor vehicle having difficulties with under 5% wrong fuel contamination. Bear in mind that it is rare - not impossible to encounter. There are a few automobiles that don't endure any quantity of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Anywhere between 2.1 and 4.2 litres of Diesel in the Toyota (from 5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 situation. Our expertise has shown that as many motorists get away with it as those who break down. When deciding upon whether to chance it and just top it up consider that it is the same as wagering your car on black - you've got a 50/50 possibility of it working out.
    3. Anything more than 4.2 litres of Diesel in a Petrol Urban Cruiser really should right away be drained out seeing as your likelihood of succeeding with that quantity of contamination is in all likelihood lower than one in fifty - genuinely big odds.
  2. Put some Diesel in a Petrol Toyota and drove it: Have you noticed any kind of performance troubles since putting the incorrect fuel in the Urban Cruiser? If you have, have it drained regardless of the quantity of Diesel or even the contamination ratio. Proceeding to drive running a motor vehicle that is now starting to suffer from the effect of wrong fuel contamination will probably definitely result in progressively more harm being caused to the fuel system.
  3. Are you looking for security?
    In that case get it emptied. No matter the contamination percentage, there is always some amount of risk associated with driving a Petrol motor on Petrol contaminated with Diesel. Possible outcomes of driving on the wrong fuel include the motor refusing to start, running unevenly, reduced power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn or bunged injectors, etc. These are some of the most frequently seen Diesel in Petrol signs and symptoms, and in the event that you observe any of them stop and have it drained immediately.

Diesel in Petrol FAQs

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.
