Mitsubishi Fuel Drain


Filling Petrol in a Diesel Mitsubishi is a fairly typical mistake to make. And its solution is based on several different things. Assuming you want to know what you ought to do about it then please read on.
These are the most crucial variables to be aware of whenever determining whether or not to have the car drained:

  1. What amount of Petrol have you put in the Mitsubishi, taking into account that the fuel tank capacity of your Mitsubishi ASx DI-D is in most cases roughly 63 litres?
    1. A tiny amount of Petrol, as little as 3.15 litres of Petrol in a Diesel ASx DI-D will most of the time not necessarily be a big problem. Experience has taught us that quantities under 3.15 litres (5% of the total fuel tank volume) is very often able to be adequately diluted by thoroughly topping the rest of the tank with the appropriate fuel.
      It is quite rare to encounter a car having problems with lower than 5% wrong fuel contamination. Keep in mind that it is very infrequent - certainly not impossible to encounter. There are actually a few automobiles that don't endure any amount of contamination in the slightest.
    2. In between 3.15 and 6.3 litres of Petrol in the Mitsubishi (from 5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 scenario. Our working experience has confirmed that as many motorists get away with this as those people who don't. Any time you are deciding on whether to chance it and basically top it up recognise that it is the same as betting it all on black - you will have a 50/50 chance of it working out.
    3. Anything more than 6.3 litres of Petrol in a Diesel ASx DI-D ought to promptly be drained since your probability of getting away with that quantity of contamination is more than likely less than one in 50 - seriously huge odds.
  2. Put Petrol in a Diesel Mitsubishi and drove it: Have you observed any kind of performance issues as a result of putting the incorrect fuel in the ASx DI-D? If you have, get it drained no matter the quantity of Petrol or even the contamination ratio. Still running an automobile that is currently starting to suffer the effects of fuel contamination can only be responsible for more harm being done to your fuel system.
  3. Would you like reassurance?
    Simply get it emptied. Whatever the contamination percentage, there is always a certain level of danger linked with operating a Diesel motor on Diesel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Probable implications of driving on the wrong fuel include the motor not starting, running lumpy, lack of power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn out or bunged injectors, and so on. These are some of the commonest Petrol in Diesel signs and symptoms, and should you observe any of them cease driving 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.
