Mitsubishi Fuel Drain


Filling Petrol in a Diesel Mitsubishi is a very common problem. And its remedy depends upon various things. If you want to know what you need to do about this then keep reading.
Let us discuss the key variables to to consider whenever figuring out whether to get a fuel drain:

  1. How much Petrol did you put into the Mitsubishi, bearing in mind that the fuel capacity of your Mitsubishi Outlander DI-D is most likely about 60 litres?
    1. A small quantity of Petrol, something like 3 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Outlander DI-D will generally not really be a big problem. Experience has taught us that quantities under 3 litres (almost 5% of the total fuel tank) is in many instances capable of being sufficiently diluted simply by entirely topping up the remainder of the tank with Diesel.
      It's rather uncommon to find a vehicle going through problems because of below 5% wrong fuel contamination. Please remember it is infrequently found - not impossible to find. You can get a few cars that don't stand any degree of contamination at all.
    2. Anywhere between 3 and 6 litres of Petrol in the Mitsubishi (5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 situation. Our expertise has shown that as many people get away with this as all those who don't. Whenever you are deciding on whether or not to chance it and basically fill it up bear in mind that it is very much like gambling your car on black - you've got a 50/50 chance of it working.
    3. Anything in excess of 6 litres of Petrol in your Diesel Outlander DI-D must straight away be drained since your likelihood of getting away with this level of contamination is in all likelihood less than one in fifty - truly huge odds.
  2. Put Petrol in a Diesel Mitsubishi and drove it: Have you noticed any performance issues after putting the bad fuel in the Outlander DI-D? If that's the case, get it removed regardless of the amount of Petrol or even the contamination percentage. Continuing to run driving a vehicle that is currently beginning to suffer from the effect of wrong fuel contamination can likely result in progressively more damage being done to the fuel system parts.
  3. Do you need security?
    You should get it drained. Whatever the contamination ratio, there is always some extent of threat affiliated with driving a Diesel motor on Diesel contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Likely final outcomes of driving a vehicle on the incorrect fuel include the motor not starting, running unevenly, loss in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or bunged injectors, and so on. These are a few of the commonest Petrol in Diesel symptoms, and should you notice any of them stop driving and have it removed right away.

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.
