Jaguar Fuel Drain


Putting Petrol in a Diesel Jaguar is a regular error. And exactly what you want to do about it is based on a few things. Assuming you would like to know what you must do about this then keep on reading.
Listed below are the key factors to keep in mind when deciding on whether or not to get a fuel drain:

  1. What level of Petrol did you put in to the Jaguar, bearing in mind that the fuel tank capacity of the Jaguar x-Type Diesel is most likely around 61 litres?
    1. Hardly any Petrol, less than 3.05 litres of Petrol in a Diesel x-Type Diesel will more often than not not really be a major problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that anything under 3.05 litres (approximately 5% of the fuel tank volume) is frequently able to be adequately diluted through wholly filling up the rest of the tank with Diesel.
      It's relatively unusual to find a motor vehicle suffering from issues because of under 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Keep in mind that it is uncommon - certainly not impossible to encounter. There are actually certain vehicles that will not endure any degree of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. In between 3.05 and 6.1 litres of Petrol in the Jaguar (from 5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 condition. Our expertise has shown that as many drivers get away with it as those people who don't. Whenever you are deciding whether or not to risk it and just fill it up consider that it is exactly like wagering it all on black - you have got a 50/50 possibility of it working out.
    3. Anything in excess of 6.1 litres of Petrol in your Diesel x-Type Diesel ought to promptly be drained since your likelihood of getting away with this quantity of contamination is undoubtedly below one in fifty - extremely long odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel Jaguar and drove it: Have you detected any kind of performance concerns ever since putting the bad fuel in the x-Type Diesel? If that's the case, get it emptied no matter the volume of Petrol or the contamination percentage. Proceeding to drive running a motor vehicle that is beginning to suffer the consequences of fuel contamination will definitely result in more and more damage being caused to your fuel system parts.
  3. Do you want assurance?
    Then get it removed. No matter the contamination ratio, there is inevitably some extent of risk in connection with driving a Diesel engine on Diesel contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Possible final outcomes of driving a car on the wrong fuel include things like the engine refusing to start, running unevenly, loss of power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn or clogged injectors, and the like. These are a few of the most common Petrol in Diesel warning signs, and if you observe any of them cease driving and have it drained right away.

Petrol in Diesel FAQs

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.
