Mitsubishi Fuel Drain


Filling Petrol in a Diesel Mitsubishi is a regular problem. And what you have to do about it is dependent upon various things. Assuming you would like to know what you need to do about this then stay with me.
Listed below are the most crucial factors to to consider when deciding on whether or not to have a fuel drain:

  1. What level of Petrol have you put into the Mitsubishi, bearing in mind that the fuel tank capacity of the Mitsubishi Pajero Di-D is most likely roughly 71 litres?
    1. Hardly any Petrol, less than 3.55 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Pajero Di-D will in most cases not be a massive problem. Experience has shown us that anything less than 3.55 litres (almost 5% of the entire fuel tank volume) is frequently able to be completely diluted by completely filling the rest of the tank with the correct fuel.
      It is extremely uncommon to come across a car having issues because of lower than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Keep in mind it is very uncommon - in no way impossible to encounter. You will discover certain automobiles that won't endure any quantity of contamination at all.
    2. Anywhere between 3.55 and 7.1 litres of Petrol in the Mitsubishi (5 to 10%) is really a 50/50 situation. Our expertise has revealed that as many drivers get away with it as all those who break down. When figuring out whether to chance it and basically fill it up remember that it is exactly like betting your car on black - you will have a 50/50 possibility of it working.
    3. Anything over 7.1 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Pajero Di-D should really promptly be drained out as your probability of driving with this level of contamination is almost certainly less than one in fifty - definitely huge odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel Mitsubishi and drove it: Have you spotted any kind of performance concerns since putting the wrong fuel in the Pajero Di-D? In that case, get it drained regardless of the volume of Petrol or the contamination ratio. Proceeding to run running a motor vehicle that is beginning to suffer from the consequences of fuel contamination will probably likely result in even more damage being caused to the fuel system.
  3. Are you looking for assurance?
    Then get it drained. No matter the contamination percentage, there is always a certain level of risk associated with running a Diesel engine on fuel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Probable outcomes of driving a car on the wrong fuel include things like the motor refusing to start, running unevenly, losing power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn or bunged injectors, etc. These are a few of the most frequently seen Petrol in Diesel symptoms, and in the event that you observe any of them stop and have it drained 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.
