Nissan Fuel Drain


Putting Petrol in a Diesel Nissan is a fairly typical mistake to make. And its solution depends upon various things. In case you want to know what you should do about this then stay with me.
Right here are the most crucial factors to be aware of when figuring out whether to get a fuel drain:

  1. How much Petrol did you put into the Nissan, keeping in mind that the fuel capacity of your Nissan Murano dCi is in most cases approximately 82 litres?
    1. A tiny amount of Petrol, as little as 4.1 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Murano dCi will in most cases not necessarily be a major problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that an amount less than 4.1 litres (5% of the whole fuel tank) is in many instances capable of being sufficiently diluted simply by wholly topping the remainder of the tank with Diesel.
      It is extremely uncommon to encounter a car going through problems with under 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Remember that it is uncommon - certainly not impossible to encounter. You will discover a number of cars that will not stand any amount of contamination whatsoever.
    2. Anywhere between 4.1 and 8.2 litres of Petrol in the Nissan (5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 situation. Our practical experience has shown that as many drivers get away with this as those who don't. When you are trying to decide whether to risk it and basically fill it up bear in mind that it is exactly like gambling your car on black - you have a 50/50 chance of it working out.
    3. Anything over 8.2 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Murano dCi should really promptly be drained out seeing as your likelihood of driving with that level of contamination is more than likely lower than one in 50 - really big odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel Nissan and drove it: Have you noticed any performance issues ever since putting the bad fuel in your Murano dCi? If so, get it emptied irrespective of the volume of Petrol or the contamination ratio. Continually running a car that is now starting to suffer from the effects of wrong fuel contamination will probably definitely be responsible for progressively more harm being caused to the fuel system parts.
  3. Do you want peace of mind?
    Then get it drained. No matter the contamination percentage, there is always a certain level of risk connected with operating a Diesel motor on Diesel contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Likely outcomes of driving a vehicle on the wrong fuel include things like the motor not starting, running unevenly, reduced power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn out or bunged injectors, etc. These are several of the commonest Petrol in Diesel symptoms, and if you observe any of them stop and get 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.
