Toyota Fuel Drain


Filling Petrol in a Diesel Toyota is a fairly typical mistake to make. And what you need to do about it depends on an assortment of things. If perhaps you would like to find out what you need to do about it then stay with me.
Right here are the most important variables to take into account whenever deciding on whether to have your car drained:

  1. Exactly how much Petrol did you put into the Toyota, considering that the fuel tank capacity of the Toyota Urban Cruiser D-4D is in most cases about 42 litres?
    1. Hardly any Petrol, less than 2.1 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Urban Cruiser D-4D will more often than not not be a big problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that anything less than 2.1 litres (which is approximately 5% of the entire fuel tank) is very often capable of being completely diluted through totally topping up the tank with the right fuel.
      It's extremely unusual to encounter an automobile having issues with less than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Bear in mind that it's infrequent - not impossible to find. There are actually a few motor vehicles that will not stand any amount of contamination in the slightest.
    2. Somewhere between 2.1 and 4.2 litres of Petrol in the Toyota (from 5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 situation. Our working experience has demonstrated that as many people get away with it as those who don't. Whenever trying to decide whether or not to chance it and simply fill it up consider that it is much like wagering everything on black - you will have a 50/50 chance of it working out.
    3. Anything more than 4.2 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Urban Cruiser D-4D ought to right away be removed seeing as your likelihood of succeeding with this level of contamination is in all likelihood below one in fifty - really big odds.
  2. Put Petrol in a Diesel Toyota and drove it: Have you observed any kind of performance troubles since putting the wrong fuel in your Urban Cruiser D-4D? If you have, get it emptied irrespective of the quantity of Petrol or even the contamination ratio. Continually running an automobile that is already beginning to suffer from the consequences of fuel contamination will probably just bring about more harm affecting the fuel system parts.
  3. Do you want peace of mind?
    In that case get it removed. No matter the contamination percentage, there is inevitably some extent of threat resulting from driving a Diesel engine on fuel contaminated with the incorrect fuel. Likely final outcomes of driving a car on the wrong fuel include things like the engine not starting, running unevenly, lack of power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or blocked injectors, and so forth. These are several of the commonest Petrol in Diesel symptoms, and in the event that you notice any of them then stop and get 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.
