Toyota Fuel Drain


Putting Petrol in a Diesel Toyota is a well-known mistake to make. And exactly what you want to do about it is determined by various factors. In the event that you want to know what you ought to do about it then please read on.
Here are the key factors to take into consideration when deciding on whether or not to have it drained:

  1. How much Petrol have you put in to the Toyota, taking into account that the fuel tank capacity of your Toyota Verso D-4D is probably approximately 60 litres?
    1. A small quantity of Petrol, as little as 3 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Verso D-4D will in most situations not be a big problem. Experience has demonstrated to us that an amount under 3 litres (about 5% of the whole fuel tank volume) is frequently capable of being sufficiently diluted by wholly topping the tank with Diesel.
      It's pretty uncommon to find a vehicle experiencing difficulties due to under 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Keep in mind that it's uncommon - in no way impossible to find. You will discover some vehicles that won't endure any amount of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Anywhere between 3 and 6 litres of Petrol in the Toyota (from 5 to 10%) is a 50/50 scenario. Our working experience has shown that as many drivers get away with this as all those who don't. Any time you are deciding on whether or not to risk it and simply top it up consider that it is much like gambling your car on black - you've got a 50/50 chance of it working out.
    3. Anything above 6 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Verso D-4D ought to straightaway be drained because your probability of driving with that amount of contamination is in all likelihood less than one in 50 - truly big odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel Toyota and drove it: Have you spotted any kind of performance problems ever since putting the incorrect fuel in the Verso D-4D? If you have, have it drained no matter the amount of Petrol or the contamination ratio. Continuing to drive driving a car that is now beginning to suffer from the effect of wrong fuel contamination will probably only cause even more damage affecting the fuel system components.
  3. Do you want assurance?
    Simply get it removed. Whatever the contamination ratio, there is inevitably some extent of threat linked with operating a Diesel engine on fuel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Possible implications of driving on the wrong fuel can include the motor refusing to start, running lumpy, losing power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or clogged injectors, and so forth. These are some of the most frequently seen Petrol in Diesel symptoms, and in the event that you observe any of them stop driving and have it removed right away.

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.
