Mitsubishi Fuel Drain


Filling up with Petrol in a Diesel Mitsubishi is a usual mistake to make. And what you want to do about it is dependent upon a few things. In the event that you want to find out what you must do about it then stay with me.
These are the most important factors to think about whenever choosing whether or not to have it drained:

  1. What amount of Petrol did you put into the Mitsubishi, taking into consideration that the fuel capacity of your Mitsubishi Space Wagon TD is normally around 60 litres?
    1. A tiny amount of Petrol, less than 3 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Space Wagon TD will quite often not be a big problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that anything less than 3 litres (which is roughly 5% of the overall fuel tank volume) is frequently capable of being completely diluted by entirely topping the remainder of the tank with Diesel.
      It's relatively rare to come across a motor vehicle suffering from issues with lower than 5% wrong fuel contamination. Please remember it is infrequently found - not impossible to find. There are certain cars that won't stand any degree of contamination in the slightest.
    2. Somewhere between 3 and 6 litres of Petrol in the Mitsubishi (5 to 10%) is a 50/50 scenario. Our working experience demonstrates that as many people get away with it as all those who don't. Whenever deciding on whether to risk it and just simply top it up consider that it is just like gambling it all on black - you've got a 50/50 possibility of it working.
    3. Anything more than 6 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Space Wagon TD should really immediately be drained seeing that your probability of succeeding with this level of contamination is very likely below one in fifty - definitely big odds.
  2. Put Petrol in a Diesel Mitsubishi and drove it: Have you detected any kind of performance concerns ever since putting the wrong fuel in the Space Wagon TD? If you have, get it emptied irrespective of the volume of Petrol or even the contamination percentage. Continuing to drive driving a motor vehicle that is currently beginning to suffer the consequences of fuel contamination can typically cause more harm being caused to the fuel system components.
  3. Do you want security?
    Simply get it drained. No matter the contamination ratio, there is invariably a certain level of threat linked with running a Diesel motor on Diesel contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Possible outcomes of driving on the incorrect fuel can include the motor refusing to start, running lumpy, losing power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or blocked injectors, and the like. These are several of the commonest Petrol in Diesel symptoms, and if you recognise any of them then stop and have it removed right now.

Don't just have any general so-and-so to try to drain your automobile. We are Mitsubishi experts and possess the skills and knowledge required to make sure that you get back on the road with little hassle or worry.

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.
