Land Rover Fuel Drain


Filling Petrol in a Diesel Land Rover is a usual problem. And exactly what you need to do about it is based on an assortment of things. Assuming you would like to know what you need to do to fix it then continue reading.
Let us discuss the key variables to take into consideration whenever choosing whether to have a fuel drain:

  1. What level of Petrol have you put into the Land Rover, bearing in mind that the fuel tank capacity of the Land Rover Range Rover Td6 is in most cases roughly 100 litres?
    1. A tiny quantity of Petrol, as little as 5 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Range Rover Td6 will quite often not necessarily be a massive problem. Experience has shown us that an amount under 5 litres (approximately 5% of the fuel tank volume) is quite often capable of being sufficiently diluted through entirely filling up the rest of the tank with Diesel.
      It's pretty rare to encounter a car having issues because of less than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Remember that it is unusual - definitely not impossible to encounter. You can get certain motor vehicles that won't stand any level of contamination whatsoever.
    2. In between 5 and 10 litres of Petrol in the Land Rover (5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 situation. Our working experience has shown that as many motorists get away with it as those who don't. When you are deciding whether to risk it and basically top it up recognise that it is just like wagering everything on black - you will have a 50/50 chance of it working out.
    3. Anything in excess of 10 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Range Rover Td6 ought to as soon as possible be removed seeing that your likelihood of getting away with this quantity of contamination is in all likelihood less than one in fifty - really huge odds.
  2. Put Petrol in a Diesel Land Rover and drove it: Have you noted any performance concerns after putting the bad fuel in the Range Rover Td6? If that's the case, have it removed irrespective of the volume of Petrol or even the contamination ratio. Continuing to run driving a car that is now beginning to suffer from the effects of fuel contamination will probably typically be responsible for more harm being caused to the fuel system.
  3. Would you like assurance?
    In that case get it emptied. No matter the contamination ratio, there is invariably a certain level of danger in connection with running a Diesel vehicle on fuel contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Probable results of driving on the incorrect fuel normally include the engine not starting, running unevenly, lack of power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn or blocked injectors, and so forth. These are some of the most common Petrol in Diesel symptoms, and if you observe any of them then cease driving and get it removed asap.

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.
