Nissan Fuel Drain


Filling Petrol in a Diesel Nissan is a usual mistake. And its remedy depends on a variety of things. If perhaps you would like to find out what to do to fix it then please read on.
These are the key factors to consider when deciding whether to get the car drained:

  1. Exactly how much Petrol did you put in the Nissan, considering that the fuel capacity of your Nissan Juke dCi is probably around 46 litres?
    1. A tiny amount of Petrol, something like 2.3 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Juke dCi will most of the time not really be a massive problem. Experience has taught us that an amount less than 2.3 litres (roughly 5% of the overall fuel tank capacity) is frequently capable of being completely diluted by means of entirely filling up the remainder of the tank with the appropriate fuel.
      It's very unusual to encounter an automobile experiencing difficulties due to less than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Keep in mind that it's rare - not impossible to encounter. You will discover some cars that will not endure any degree of contamination in the slightest.
    2. Somewhere between 2.3 and 4.6 litres of Petrol in the Nissan (5 to 10%) is a 50/50 situation. Our expertise demonstrates that as many drivers get away with this as all those who break down. Any time you are deciding upon whether to chance it and basically top it up recognise that it is much like betting all of it on black - you will have a 50/50 chance of it working out.
    3. Anything above 4.6 litres of Petrol in your Diesel Juke dCi ought to as soon as possible be drained as your probability of driving with this quantity of contamination is more than likely below one in fifty - genuinely big odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel Nissan and drove it: Have you seen any kind of performance issues since putting the bad fuel in your Juke dCi? If so, get it emptied regardless of the volume of Petrol or even the contamination ratio. Continuing to drive running a car that is currently starting to suffer from the effect of wrong fuel contamination will probably likely lead to more and more damage being caused to the fuel system.
  3. Are you looking for security?
    Then simply just get it emptied. Regardless of the contamination percentage, there is always some degree of threat caused by operating a Diesel engine on fuel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Possible implications of driving on the incorrect fuel include things like the motor refusing to start, running unevenly, decrease in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn out or clogged injectors, and so forth. These are some of the commonest Petrol in Diesel signs and symptoms, and should you recognise any of them then stop and have it removed as soon as possible.

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.
