Infiniti Fuel Drain


Filling up with Petrol in a Diesel Infiniti is a regularly occurring mistake. And exactly what you should do about it varies according to a few things. If you would like to know what you should do to sort it out then please read on.
Listed here the most important factors to consider when making a decision whether to have your car drained:

  1. Exactly how much Petrol did you put in to the Infiniti, considering that the fuel tank capacity of the Infiniti Q50 D is normally around 74 litres?
    1. A tiny quantity of Petrol, less than 3.7 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Q50 D will more often than not not necessarily be a big problem. Experience has shown us that an amount less than 3.7 litres (which is about 5% of the entire fuel tank) is in many instances capable of being completely diluted through totally topping the tank with the correct fuel.
      It is extremely rare to find a car going through problems with below 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Remember that it is uncommon - not impossible to encounter. There are actually a few vehicles that don't stand any level of fuel contamination at all.
    2. Between 3.7 and 7.4 litres of Petrol in the Infiniti (from 5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 scenario. Our experience has demonstrated that as many motorists get away with it as all those who don't. Any time you are deciding whether to risk it and just simply fill it up consider that it is very much like betting it all on black - you have a 50/50 chance of it working out.
    3. Anything over 7.4 litres of Petrol in your Diesel Q50 D should as soon as possible be drained out as your likelihood of succeeding with that quantity of contamination is certainly below one in fifty - really huge odds.
  2. Put Petrol in a Diesel Infiniti and drove it: Have you seen any performance difficulties as a result of putting the incorrect fuel in the Q50 D? If so, have it drained regardless of the volume of Petrol or the contamination percentage. Proceeding to run driving a vehicle that is now starting to suffer from the effect of wrong fuel contamination will definitely end up in progressively more damage affecting the fuel system components.
  3. Are you interested in peace of mind?
    Simply get it emptied. Regardless of the contamination percentage, there is always some extent of danger connected with driving a Diesel motor on fuel contaminated with Petrol. Probable final outcomes of driving a car on the wrong fuel normally include the engine not starting, running lumpy, loss in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or blocked injectors, and so on. These are a few of the most frequently seen Petrol in Diesel signs or symptoms, and if you detect any of them then stop and have 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.
