Land Rover Fuel Drain


Filling Petrol in a Diesel Land Rover is a fairly typical mistake. And its remedy is determined by a number of things. Assuming you want to find out what you need to do about it then please read on.
Listed here are the most crucial variables to think about when deciding whether or not to get a fuel drain:

  1. How much Petrol have you put in to the Land Rover, bearing in mind that the fuel tank capacity of the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque TD4 is probably roughly 60 litres?
    1. Hardly any Petrol, less than 3 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Range Rover Evoque TD4 will in most situations not really be a huge problem. Experience has taught us that quantities under 3 litres (which is 5% of the overall fuel tank) is sometimes capable of being sufficiently diluted through entirely topping the rest of the tank with Diesel.
      It's extremely unusual to find a motor vehicle suffering from issues because of under 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Remember that it is very infrequently found - in no way impossible to encounter. There are a number of cars that will not stand any quantity of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. In between 3 and 6 litres of Petrol in the Land Rover (5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 situation. Our expertise demonstrates that as many drivers get away with this as those people who break down. Any time you are deciding upon whether to chance it and basically fill it up remember that it is the same as gambling all of it on black - you have got a 50/50 chance of it working.
    3. Anything above 6 litres of Petrol in your Diesel Range Rover Evoque TD4 should really right away be drained seeing that your probability of succeeding with this quantity of contamination is probably below one in 50 - definitely long odds.
  2. Put Petrol in a Diesel Land Rover and drove it: Have you detected any kind of performance problems as a result of putting the bad fuel in your Range Rover Evoque TD4? If you have, get it drained regardless of the quantity of Petrol or the contamination ratio. Still driving a car that is starting to suffer the consequences of fuel contamination can typically be responsible for progressively more damage being done to your fuel system.
  3. Do you need assurance?
    You should get it drained. Regardless of the contamination ratio, there is always some amount of threat in connection with driving a Diesel motor on fuel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Probable consequences of driving a car on the incorrect fuel include the motor refusing to start, running unevenly, reduced power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn out or clogged injectors, etc. These are some of the most common Petrol in Diesel signs and symptoms, and should you recognise any of them stop and get it removed right now.

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.
