Infiniti Fuel Drain


Filling up with Petrol in a Diesel Infiniti is a regular mistake. And its solution is dependent upon a few things. In the event that you want to find out what you must do to sort it out then continue reading.
These are the key factors to keep in mind whenever determining whether to get a fuel drain:

  1. Exactly how much Petrol have you put in the Infiniti, taking into account that the fuel capacity of the Infiniti Ex30d is probably around 80 litres?
    1. A modest quantity of Petrol, as little as 4 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Ex30d will in most situations not really be a massive problem. Experience has proven to us that anything under 4 litres (roughly 5% of the whole fuel tank capacity) is usually able to be completely diluted by means of thoroughly filling up the rest of the tank with Diesel.
      It's quite rare to encounter a car going through difficulties with below 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Do not forget that it is very rare - in no way impossible to encounter. You can get a few motor vehicles that will not endure any level of contamination at all.
    2. In between 4 and 8 litres of Petrol in the Infiniti (5 to 10%) is a 50/50 situation. Our expertise has shown us that as many people get away with this as all those who break down. Any time you're trying to decide whether to chance it and just top it up remember that it is just like gambling all of it on black - you have got a 50/50 possibility of it working.
    3. Anything in excess of 8 litres of Petrol in your Diesel Ex30d ought to straightaway be drained seeing that your probability of driving with that amount of contamination is very likely lower than one in fifty - definitely long odds.
  2. Put Petrol in a Diesel Infiniti and drove it: Have you noticed any kind of performance difficulties as a result of putting the wrong fuel in your Ex30d? If so, have it emptied regardless of the quantity of Petrol or the contamination percentage. Still running an automobile that is currently beginning to suffer from the effects of fuel contamination can just bring about increasing amounts of damage being caused to your fuel system.
  3. Are you looking for assurance?
    Simply get it removed. Whatever the contamination percentage, there is always some amount of threat in connection with operating a Diesel motor on fuel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Likely results of driving a vehicle on the wrong fuel can include the motor refusing to start, running lumpy, decrease in power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn out or clogged injectors, and so forth. These are some of the most common Petrol in Diesel warning signs, and should you detect any of them stop and get it removed as soon as possible.

Petrol in Diesel Questions

When someone has put Petrol in a Diesel car they have a few very common questions. So we have compiled a list of the most Frequently Asked Questions for you

I put Petrol in a Diesel 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 Diesel car on Petrol 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 Petrol can I get away with in a Diesel 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 Diesel 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.
