Renault Fuel Drain


Putting Petrol in a Diesel Renault is a regularly occurring mistake. And its remedy hinges on various things. In the event that you would like to know what you should do to sort it out then please read on.
Listed here the most important factors to keep in mind when choosing whether or not to have it drained:

  1. What amount of Petrol did you put into the Renault, bearing in mind that the fuel capacity of your Renault Kadjar ENERGY dCi is in most cases roughly 55 litres?
    1. Hardly any Petrol, less than 2.75 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Kadjar ENERGY dCi will more often than not not be a big problem. Experience has taught us that quantities less than 2.75 litres (almost 5% of the entire fuel tank capacity) is usually able to be completely diluted by means of wholly topping the remainder of the tank with the correct fuel.
      It is quite unusual to come across a car or truck suffering from difficulties because of under 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Be aware that it is very unusual - certainly not impossible to encounter. You can get a number of cars that don't endure any amount of contamination at all.
    2. Anywhere between 2.75 and 5.5 litres of Petrol in the Renault (from 5 to 10%) is a 50/50 condition. Our experience has shown us that as many drivers get away with it as all those who don't. Whenever deciding on whether or not to chance it and basically top it up recognise that it is very much like wagering it all on black - you've got a 50/50 possibility of it working.
    3. Anything above 5.5 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Kadjar ENERGY dCi really should straight away be removed since your likelihood of driving with that quantity of contamination is in all likelihood less than one in 50 - seriously big odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel Renault and drove it: Have you noticed any kind of performance problems after putting the incorrect fuel in your Kadjar ENERGY dCi? If so, have it emptied irrespective of the quantity of Petrol or even the contamination percentage. Proceeding to run running a vehicle that is already starting to suffer the effect of fuel contamination can only result in more harm being caused to your fuel system.
  3. Do you want security?
    Then get it drained. Regardless of the contamination percentage, there is inevitably a certain level of risk linked with driving a Diesel engine on fuel contaminated with Petrol. Likely results of driving a car on the incorrect fuel can include the engine refusing to start, running lumpy, reduced power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn or blocked injectors, and the like. These are some of the most typical Petrol in Diesel warning signs, and should you detect any of them stop and have it removed immediately.

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.
